    ..Finally we also exclude an anti-proliferative role of Necdin in developing sensory neurons. Overall, our data show clearly that, in early development of the nervous system, Necdin is an anti-apoptotic or survival factor. ..

    ..These results indicate that CGRP signaling through CLR/RAMP1 receptors plays a crucial role in the regulation of both blood pressure by vascular relaxation and proinflammatory cytokine production from dendritic cells. ..

    ..These findings together indicate that alphaCGRP and betaCGRP have their own roles in the ontogenic process. ..
