- Galanin acts as a neuroprotective factor to the hippocampusCaroline R Elliott-Hunt
Laboratories for Integrative Neuroscience and Endocrinology, Bristol University, Whitson Street, Bristol BS1 3NY, United Kingdom
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 101:5105-10. 2004..These results demonstrate that galanin acts an endogenous neuroprotective factor to the hippocampus and imply that a galanin agonist might have therapeutic uses in some forms of brain injury...
- Activation of the galanin receptor 2 (GalR2) protects the hippocampus from neuronal damageCaroline R Elliott-Hunt
Departments of Pharmacology and Clinical Sciences South Bristol, Bristol University, Bristol, UK
J Neurochem 100:780-9. 2007..These findings imply that the rise in endogenous galanin observed either after brain injury or in various disease states is an adaptive response that reduces apoptosis by the activation of GalR2, and hence Akt and ERK...
