The role of potassium buffering and apoptosis of trigeminal satellite glial cells in the induction and maintenance of orofacial neuropathic pain in rats
(Virginia Tech, 2011-05-31)
Satellite glial cells (SGC) are laminar cells that wrap completely around the sensory neuron and are responsible for buffering extracellular K+ after neuronal excitation. A decrease in the potassium buffering capacity of ...
The anti-diabetic mechanisms by isoflavone genistein
(Virginia Tech, 2011-05-10)
Diabetes is growing public health problem in the United States. Both in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, the deterioration of glycemic control over time is largely due to insulin secretory dysfunction and significant loss of ...
Dysregulated Apoptosis in Teratogen-Induced Neural Tube Defects in Mice
(Virginia Tech, 2011-01-27)
Dysregulation of apoptosis during development is a possible mechanism for teratogen-induced birth defects. Neural tube defects (NTDs) are the second most common fetal malformations. Non-specific stimulation of maternal ...
