24139947 In the cochlea, NTN immunostaining was found in the supporting cells of organ of Corti, including Deiters' cells, Hensen cells as well as Claudius' cells. In the spiral ganglia, NTN was seen in both the cell bodies and the nerve fibers of neurons.
24067900 Neurturin contributes toward an aggressive cancer cell phenotype, neuropathic pain and neuronal plasticity in pancreatic cancer.
22847529 Human neurturin protected crayfish neurons and glia from photodynamic injury.
21723942 Cyclic AMP signalling through PKA but not Epac is essential for neurturin-induced biphasic ERK1/2 activation and neurite outgrowths through GFRalpha2 isoforms.
18970938 No differences were found in the allelic frequencies of the variants or in the haplotype distribution between Hirschsprung's disease patients & controls, nor to any demographic/clinical parameters within the group of patients.
18970938 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18222320 GDNF, NTN, GFRalpha-1, GFRalpha-2, and c-Ret proteins are differentially expressed in the different stages of hair follicle cycle. GFRalpha-mediated signaling involves c-Ret and may play a role in human HF biology.
17522305 Depending on the brain's expressions of specific GDNF family GFRalpha2 receptor spliced isoforms, neurturin may promote or inhibit neurite outgrowth through the multicomponent receptor complex.
16895582 GDNF and NTN differentially regulate the expression of distinct miRNA precursors through the activation of mitogen-activated protein kinase
16081799 Addition of neurturin to activated peripheral blood mononuclear leukocytes reduces the amount of detectable tumor necrosis factor protein without altering its transcription.
15829225 The results obtained suggest the involvement of NTN, PSP, and ART in processes subserving both the organization of this cortical region during development and the functional activity and maintenance of the mature human hippocampal neurons.
12397373 The gene expression of protein was studied in the developing human tooth.
11790765 GDNF and NRTN are new neuromodulators that regulate the development of the neuromuscular synapse
