  • regulation
  • The activation of Trk receptors by neurotrophin binding may lead to activation of signal cascades resulting in promoting survival and other functional regulation of cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • intracellular
  • The binding of BDNF to TrkB receptor causes many intracellular cascades to be activated, which regulate neuronal development and plasticity, long-term potentiation, and apoptosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • inflammatory
  • However, in presence of other factors such as positive energy balance, excessive intake of carbohydrates (in particular mono and disaccharides), and a sedentary lifestyle, the mechanisms to maintain a steady state of PA concentration may be disrupted leading to an over accumulation of tissue PA resulting in dyslipidemia, hyperglycemia, increased ectopic fat accumulation and increased inflammatory tone via toll-like receptor 4. (frontiersin.org)
  • selective
  • Apomorphine (brand names Apokyn, Ixense, Spontane, Uprima) is a type of aporphine having activity as a non-selective dopamine agonist which activates both D2-like and, to a much lesser extent, D1-like receptors. (wikipedia.org)
  • nervous system
  • Sulfatide is a major component in the nervous system and is found in high levels in the myelin sheath in both the peripheral nervous system and the central nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • synthase
  • The present data suggest that ATP synthase β -chain can serve as the endocytic receptor of HDL, and its overexpression can reduce plasma HDL-C. (hindawi.com)
  • facilitates
  • To combat infection, the phagocytes of the innate immune system facilitates many pattern recognition receptors (PRR) to help recognize pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) on the surface of pathogenic microorganisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • compound
  • Similar to other chromium(III) compounds, it is relatively inert and unreactive, meaning that this complex is stable at ambient conditions and high temperatures are required to decompose the compound. (wikipedia.org)
  • functional
  • However, the activation of these receptors also has significant effects on functional properties of neurons. (wikipedia.org)
  • Each monomer of human alpha-2-macroglobulin is composed of several functional domains, including macroglobulin domains, a thiol ester-containing domain and a receptor-binding domain. (wikipedia.org)
  • activation
  • This pain arises from activation of the pain receptor, TRPA1, found on sensory nerves and can be mitigated by pretreatment with lidocaine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many of its biological effects in animals are produced through activation of melatonin receptors, while others are due to its role as an antioxidant, with a particular role in the protection of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA. (wikipedia.org)
  • expression
  • The authors used bone marrow transplantation to selectively eliminate SR-BI expression in bone marrow-derived cells in a hyperlipidemic mouse model: the LDL receptor-deficient mice. (ahajournals.org)
  • Immunostaining was carried out in sections of macaque eye using the above mentioned antibodies to determine the expression pattern of scavenger receptors in the primate eye. (arvojournals.org)
  • Expression of scavenger receptors in the primate eye sections showed no overlap in their pattern, suggestive of non-redundant roles in carotenoid uptake. (arvojournals.org)

  • Total RNA was isolated from human donor eye tissues and q-PCR was carried out to determine the transcript levels of scavenger receptors. (arvojournals.org)
  • member
  • The family of Trk receptors is named for the oncogene trk, whose identification led to the discovery of its first member, TrkA. (wikipedia.org)
  • activity
  • Key to the use of apomorphine as a behavioural modifier was the research of Erich Harnack, whose experiments in rabbits (which do not vomit) demonstrated that apomorphine had powerful effects on the activity of rabbits, inducing licking, gnawing and in very high doses convulsions and death. (wikipedia.org)
  • Activity of the alveolar macrophage is relatively high, because they are located at one of the major boundaries between the body and the outside world. (wikipedia.org)
  • Research has generally shown that it improves insulin sensitivity by either prolonging its activity or up-regulating the production of mRNA to produce more insulin receptors. (wikipedia.org)
  • concentration
  • Taking into consideration the high intraerythrocytic concentration of Hb-around 5 mM as tetramer-even a slow rate of autoxidation could generate substantial amounts of ROS. (hindawi.com)
