26556771 Study characterized the presence of Ngb in the human cochlea
26472601 Data show that the mean peak serum neuroglobin and Nogo-A concentrations were both significantly higher in patients with an unfavorable outcome at 6 months after traumatic brain injury (TBI).
26305249 Findings suggest a control model for neuroglobin's anti-apoptotic activity under physiological conditions. While in normoxic conditions, its activity is maintained at low level, an immediate transition to an hypoxic situation increases it drastically.
25683270 17beta-estradiol-induced NGB up-regulation could act as an oxidative stress sensor, which does not oppose to the pro-apoptotic 17beta-estradiol effect in ER beta-containing colon cancer cells unless a rise of oxidative stress occurs.
25552092 This paper for the first time presents the data on neuroglobin distribution in human cerbellum using immunohistochemistry.
25452214 Data show that chimeric neuroglobin and myoglobin were generated by swapping a regulatory segment.
25372753 The review summarizes the recent experimental findings, mainly focusing on the mechanisms of Ngb's protection and induction during ischemic/hypoxic conditions and it roles in astrocytes, tumors, as well as in neurite outgrowth. [review]
25299774 Neuroglobin player role in estrogen receptor alpha-positive cancer cell viability.
24855999 a mechanism for redox control of human Ngb (hNgb) activity
24699645 first X-ray structure of wild-type human neuroglobin is reported at 1.74 A resolution
