Nakamura T, Jeromin A, Smith G, Kurushima H, Koga H, Nakabeppu Y, et al. Novel role of neuronal Ca2+ sensor-1 as a survival factor up-regulated in injured neurons. J Cell Biol. 2006;172:1081-91 pubmed
..We propose that NCS-1 is a novel survival-promoting factor up-regulated in injured neurons that mediates the GDNF survival signal via the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase-Akt pathway. ..
Nakamura T, Coetzee W. Functional and pharmacological characterization of a Shal-related K+ channel subunit in Zebrafish. BMC Physiol. 2008;8:2 pubmed publisher
..We demonstrate that zShal has similar functional and pharmacological characteristics compared to Kv4.3 and it is similarly regulated by pharmacological agents and by the Kv4 accessory subunit, NCS-1. ..
