Department of Biology and Department of Life and Nanopharmaceutical Science, Research Institute of Basic Sciences, Kyunghee University, Seoul 130 701, Korea
J Microbiol Biotechnol 17:2033-41. 2007..These results suggest more studies in the effect of a combinatorial use of neurotrophins on different sites of brain need to be carried out to develop gene therapy protocols for neurodegenerative diseases...
- Shp2 is involved in neuronal differentiation of hippocampal precursor cellsHak Jae Kim
Department of Biology, Kyunghee University, Dongdaemun Gu, Seoul 130 701, Korea
Arch Pharm Res 30:750-4. 2007..These results suggest that Shp2 plays a positive role in mediating PDGF- and BDNF-activated signaling which promotes the formation of dendritic spines...
- Upregulation of amyloid precursor protein by platelet-derived growth factor in hippocampal precursor cellsJung Su Lim
Department of Biology and Life and Nanopharmaceutical Science, Institute of Age related and Brain Disease, Kyunghee University, Korea
Neuroreport 18:1225-9. 2007..These results suggest that the neurotrophic effect of platelet-derived growth factor is mediated in part via upregulation of the expression and release of secreted amyloid precursor protein alpha...
- Wogonin induces differentiation and neurite outgrowth of neural precursor cellsJung Su Lim
Department of Biology, Kyunghee University, Seoul 130 701, Republic of Korea
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 402:42-7. 2010..These data indicate that wogonin induces differentiation of NPCs both in culture and in vivo, and suggest that facilitation of NPC differentiation is a biological activity by which wogonin protects neurons in damaged brain...
- p62 modulates Akt activity via association with PKCzeta in neuronal survival and differentiationInsil Joung
Department of Biology, Hanseo University, Seosan, Chungnam 352 820, Korea
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 334:654-60. 2005..Furthermore, we found that p62 expression was induced during neuronal differentiation. Taken together, the data suggest p62 is a regulator of neuronal cell survival and differentiation...
- Memory improvement in ibotenic acid induced model rats by extracts of Scutellaria baicalensisHwon Heo
Department of Biology, Kyunghee University, 1 Hoegi dong, Dongdaemun Gu, Seoul 130 701, Republic of Korea
J Ethnopharmacol 122:20-7. 2009..Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi (Labiatae) extracts have been used as traditional Korean medicine, to treat cerebral ischemia in addition to bacterial infection and inflammatory diseases...
- Genetic association between 5'-upstream single-nucleotide polymorphisms of PDGFRB and schizophrenia in a Korean populationHak Jae Kim
Kohwang Medical Research Institute, School of Medicine, Department of Biology, Kyung Hee University, Seoul 130 701, Republic of Korea
Schizophr Res 103:201-8. 2008..We conclude that SNPs of the 5'-upstream region of PDGFRB are associated with SCZ in a Korean population. These are weak positives that require future studies to confirm these results...
- The behavior of neural stem cells on biodegradable synthetic polymersSuk Ho Bhang
Department of Bioengineering, Hanyang University, Seoul 133 791, South Korea
J Biomater Sci Polym Ed 18:223-39. 2007..PLGA also showed favorable results for neurite out-growth of HiB5 cells. The results of this study demonstrate the promising biocompatibility of PLGA as a scaffold for neural stem cell transplantation for nerve regeneration...
