Inhibitors of mitogen-activated protein kinases protect axotomized developing neurons.
Journal Article Research Support, Non-U.S. Gov't --- Old month value: Sep 18
Axotomy kills developing neurons by mechanisms dependent on protein synthesis and influenced by the redox status. Amongst the redox-regulated transduction systems regulating gene expression are the mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs). In the chick embryo, inhibitors of two different MAPK pathways, including notably the p38 kinase pathway, reduce the number of dying axotomized retinal ganglion cells. The regulation of the genetic events associated to axotomy-induced death thus seems to involve MAPKs.
