  1. Xu H, Zhou K, Huang Y, Chen L, Xu T. Taurine activates strychnine-sensitive glycine receptors in neurons of the rat inferior colliculus. Brain Res. 2004;1021:232-40 pubmed
    ..These findings indicate that Tau activates glycine receptors in neurons of the rat IC and thus may have a functional role in regulating or modulating the neurotransmission of the central auditory system in mammals. ..
  2. Xu H, Gong N, Chen L, Xu T. Sodium salicylate reduces gamma aminobutyric acid-induced current in rat spinal dorsal horn neurons. Neuroreport. 2005;16:813-6 pubmed
    ..Our results demonstrate that sodium salicylate reversibly attenuates the GABA(A) response of dorsal horn neurons, suggesting that GABA(A) receptors in the region are pharmacological targets of sodium salicylate. ..
  3. Xu T, Gong N, Xu T. Divalent cation modulation of a-type potassium channels in acutely dissociated central neurons from wide-type and mutant Drosophila. J Neurogenet. 2005;19:87-107 pubmed
  4. Chen Y, Yang L, Feng C, Wen L. Nano neodymium oxide induces massive vacuolization and autophagic cell death in non-small cell lung cancer NCI-H460 cells. Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2005;337:52-60 pubmed
    ..Bafilomycin A1, but not 3-MA, induced apoptosis while inhibiting autophagy. Our results revealed a novel biological function for Nano Nd2O3 and may have implications for the therapy of non-small cell lung cancer...
  5. Jiang P, Yang C, Wang Y, Xu T. Mechanisms of modulation of pregnanolone on glycinergic response in cultured spinal dorsal horn neurons of rat. Neuroscience. 2006;141:2041-50 pubmed
    ..Through modulating the glycinergic inhibitory neurotransmission, pregnanolone may affect the nociceptive sensory processing under physiological and pathological conditions. ..
  6. Tang Z, Lu Y, Chen L. Developmental stability of taurine's activation on glycine receptors in cultured neurons of rat auditory cortex. Neurosci Lett. 2008;430:54-9 pubmed
    ..Our results suggest that the functional sensitivity of glycine and GABA(A) receptors to taurine is critically regulated by their developmental environments. ..
  7. Wang H, Chen X, Yin S, Liu J, Tang M, Wu C, et al. Opposite effects of alpha-lipoic acid on antioxidation and long-term potentiation in control and chronically lead-exposed rats. Naunyn Schmiedebergs Arch Pharmacol. 2008;378:303-10 pubmed publisher
    ..These differential effects of LA on LTP in control and lead-exposed rats may be due to the different redox status of the control and lead-exposed rats...
  8. Su Y, Luo B, Jin Y, Wu S, Lobarinas E, Salvi R, et al. Altered neuronal intrinsic properties and reduced synaptic transmission of the rat's medial geniculate body in salicylate-induced tinnitus. PLoS ONE. 2012;7:e46969 pubmed publisher
    ..Our results demonstrate that NaSal alters neuronal intrinsic properties and reduces the synaptic transmission of the MGB, which may cause abnormal thalamic outputs to the auditory cortex and contribute to NaSal-induced tinnitus. ..
  9. Swiatkowski P, Murugan M, Eyo U, Wang Y, Rangaraju S, Oh S, et al. Activation of microglial P2Y12 receptor is required for outward potassium currents in response to neuronal injury. Neuroscience. 2016;318:22-33 pubmed publisher
    ..These results suggest that the quinine/bupivacaine-sensitive potassium channels are the functional effectors of the P2Y12R-mediated signaling in microglia activation following neuronal injury. ..
