  1. ncbi request reprint Cytokine signals propagate through the brain
    L Vitkovic
    CNRS INSERM Centre de Pharmacologie Endocrinologie, Montpellier, France
    Mol Psychiatry 5:604-15. 2000
    ..This elucidation is a prerequisite for better understanding of reciprocal interactions between nervous, endocrine and immune systems...

    Integrative Neural Immune Program, National Institute of Mental Health, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA
    Neuroimmunomodulation 9:295-312. 2001
    ..Their actions counterbalance the actions of elevated IL-1 and/or tumor necrosis factor-alpha to maintain homeostasis. Their therapeutic potential will be realized by improving our understanding of their place in neural cytokine networks...

    Ljubisa Vitkovic
    Laboratory of Immunoregulation, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA
    Front Biosci 10:83-7. 2005
    ..These results suggest that a relatively small number of membrane-associated proteins serve as transducers of signals mediated by Ca2+-dependent kinases and most of them are PKC substrates in astrocytes...

    Laboratory of Immunoregulation, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA
    Front Biosci 10:160-5. 2005
    ..Thus, MARCKS is likely near-proximal transducer of PKC-mediated signals in astrocytes...
