26552048 Hypermethylation of ADCYAP1 gene may be highly associated with the development of cervical cancer.
26296898 PACAP is involved in the pathogenesis of migraine rather than tension-type headache
26275482 This review provides an overview of current knowledge regarding the neuroprotective effects, mechanisms of action, and therapeutic potential of PACAP in response to ischemic brain injuries
25599520 Deficits in PACAP were associated with clinical severity in the mild cognitive impairment and dementia stages of Alzheimer's disease.
25523790 PACAP38-PAC1 signaling process initiates bone marrow-derived cells homing into the ischemic brain for reducing brain injury.
25515530 PACAP released from retinal neural cells (photoreceptors or optic nerve cells) may regulate Sema4A expression in retinal pigment epithelial cells and thereby contribute to the maintenance of retinal structure and function.
25451228 PACAP as a negative regulator of CLU
25017241 PACAP level in cerebrospinal fluid and plasma of patients with severe traumatic brain injury
24740430 Results suggest that PACAP could protect SH-SY5Y dopaminergic cells against toxicity induced by inflammatory mediators.
24719484 The close relationship between PACAP reduction and the severity of AD pathology suggests that downregulation of PACAP may contribute to AD pathogenesis.
