  4. 4. Signal Transduction in Focal Cerebral Ischemia : Experimental Studies on VEGF, MAPK and Src family kinases

    Author : Fredrik Lennmyr; Andreas Terént; Tommy Olsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Cerebral ischemia elicits a wide range of events, including complex activation of various intracellular signaling pathways. This study aims to investigate the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and the activation pattern of mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) in reponse to focal cerebral ischemia.
