26549420 These results demonstrate the pivotal role of GDNF as well as the PI3K/Akt pathway, but not the MAPK pathway, in the prevention of diabetesinduced neuronal apoptosis in the hippocampus.
26096985 The GDNF polymorphism rs3096140 is associated with Tourette syndrome.
25913759 Osteogenic features of MSCs from ossification of yellow ligament patients are promoted by un-methylated GDNF.
25869129 the PTX-sensitive alpha-subunit of G proteins, Go1 and Gi3, plays an important role in a monoamine-independent production of GDNF evoked by amitriptyline
25753832 Increased plasma levels of GDNF were found in untreated attention deficit hyperactivity disorder patients.
25692823 Data indicate that glial cell-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) was down-regulated in the medullary sponge kidney (MSK) cells.
25655772 The glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor(GDNF)-induced growth and differentiation of cultured enteric neurons is paralleled by increased expression of SNAP-25 and formation of synaptic vesicles reflecting enhanced synaptogenesis.
25619885 improvement in behavioral performance (open-field and grip-strength tests), as well as increased life-span was observed in rodents treated with NCAM-VEGF or NCAM-GDNF co-transfected cells
25575823 Data indicate the glial cell derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) signaling pathway as a potential target for improving responses to conventional genotoxic therapeutics.
25543333 GDNF levels were significantly higher in mania and lower in schizophrenia compared to healthy controls. BDNF levels were negatively correlated to illness severity scores in affective episodes
