Regulation of atrial catecholamine enzymes and adrenoceptor gene expression after chronic stress
(Acta Physiologica Hungarica, 2011)
Chronic stress is a risk factor for the development of numerous psychopathological conditions in humans including depression. Changes in gene expression of tyrosine-hydroxylase (TH), dopamine-beta-hydroxylase (DBH) ...
Chronic Isolation Stress Predisposes the Frontal Cortex but Not the Hippocampus to the Potentially Detrimental Release of Cytochrome c From Mitochondria and the Activation of Caspase-3
(Journal of Neuroscience Research, 2011)
Mitochondria are central integrators and transducers of proapoptotic signals for neuronal apoptosis. The tumor suppressor protein p53 can trigger apoptosis independently of its transcriptional activity, through subcellular ...
Novel Acute Stressor Effects on Interscapular Brown Adipose Tissue Sympathetic Inervation and Ucp-1 Content in Chronically Isolated and Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats
(Archives of biological sciences, 2011)
Interscapular brown adipose tissue (IBAT) is an energy storing organ involved in the maintenance of homeostasis in stress conditions when the balance of energy supplies is disturbed. The major regulator of IBAT activity ...
