A glance on the role of actin in osteogenic and adipogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells.

Asmat Ullah Khan, Rongmei Qu, Tingyu Fan, Jun Ouyang, Jingxing Dai,

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have the capacity to differentiate into multiple lineages including osteogenic and adipogenic lineages. An increasing number of studies have indicated that lineage commitment by MSCs is influenced by actin remodeling. Moreover, actin has roles in determining cell shape, nuclear shape, cell spreading, and cell stiffness, which ... Read more >>

Role of Nucleoporins and Transport Receptors in Cell Differentiation.

Asmat Ullah Khan, Rongmei Qu, Jun Ouyang, Jingxing Dai,

Bidirectional molecular movements between the nucleus and cytoplasm take place through nuclear pore complexes (NPCs) embedded in the nuclear membrane. These macromolecular structures are composed of several nucleoporins, which form seven different subcomplexes based on their biochemical affinity. These nucleoporins are integral components of the complex, not only allowing passive ... Read more >>

Cannabidiol-induced panicolytic-like effects and fear-induced antinociception impairment: the role of the CB1 receptor in the ventromedial hypothalamus.

Asmat Ullah Khan, Luiz Luciano Falconi-Sobrinho, Tayllon Dos Anjos-Garcia, Maria de Fátima Dos Santos Sampaio, José Alexandre de Souza Crippa, Leda Menescal-de-Oliveira, Norberto Cysne Coimbra,

RATIONALE:The behavioural effects elicited by chemical constituents of Cannabis sativa, such as cannabidiol (CBD), on the ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH) are not well understood. There is evidence that VMH neurons play a relevant role in the modulation of unconditioned fear-related defensive behavioural reactions displayed by laboratory animals. OBJECTIVES:This study was designed ... Read more >>

Awareness and current knowledge of epilepsy.

Asmat Ullah Khan, Muhammad Akram, Muhammad Daniyal, Naheed Akhter, Muhammad Riaz, Naheed Akhtar, Mohammad Ali Shariati, Fozia Anjum, Samreen Gul Khan, Abida Parveen, Saeed Ahmad,

Epilepsy is a severe neural disorder that affects approximately fifty million individuals globally. Despite the fact that for most of the people with epilepsy, convulsions are better controlled by current accessible antiepileptic medicines, yet there are more than 30% of individuals affected with medically intractable epilepsy and around 30-40% of ...

Neurotoxic lesions of the pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus impair the elaboration of postictal antinociception.

Rithiele Cristina de Oliveira, Ricardo de Oliveira, Luiz Luciano Falconi-Sobrinho, Audrey Franceschi Biagioni, Rafael Carvalho Almada, Tayllon Dos Anjos-Garcia, Guilherme Bazaglia-de-Sousa, Asmat Ullah Khan, Norberto Cysne Coimbra,

Generalised tonic-clonic seizures, generated by abnormal neuronal hyper-activity, cause a significant and long-lasting increase in the nociceptive threshold. The pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus (PPTN) plays a crucial role in the regulation of seizures as well as the modulation of pain, but its role in postictal antinociceptive processes remains unclear. In the ... Read more >>

µ1 -Opioid receptors in the dorsomedial and ventrolateral columns of the periaqueductal grey matter are critical for the enhancement of post-ictal antinociception.

Renato Leonardo de Freitas, Priscila Medeiros, Asmat Ullah Khan, Norberto Cysne Coimbra,

Generalised tonic and tonic-clonic seizures are followed by significant increase in nociceptive thresholds in both laboratory animals and humans. The endogenous opioid peptides play a role in antinociceptive signalling, and the periaqueductal grey matter (PAG) is recruited to induce analgesia. Thus, the aim of this investigation was to evaluate the ... Read more >>

Connexions between the dorsomedial division of the ventromedial hypothalamus and the dorsal periaqueductal grey matter are critical in the elaboration of hypothalamically mediated panic-like behaviour.

Farhad Ullah, Tayllon Dos Anjos-Garcia, Joyce Mendes-Gomes, Daoud Hibrahim Elias-Filho, Luiz Luciano Falconi-Sobrinho, Renato Leonardo de Freitas, Asmat Ullah Khan, Ricardo de Oliveira, Norberto Cysne Coimbra,

The electrical and chemical stimulation of the dorsal periaqueductal grey matter (dPAG) elicits panic-like explosive escape behaviour. Although neurons of the ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH) seem to organise oriented escape behaviour, when stimulated with excitatory amino acids at higher doses, non-oriented/explosive escape reactions can also be displayed. The aim of this ... Read more >>

The μ1-opioid receptor and 5-HT2A- and 5HT2C-serotonergic receptors of the locus coeruleus are critical in elaborating hypoalgesia induced by tonic and tonic-clonic seizures.

Renato Leonardo de Freitas, Priscila Medeiros, Juliana Almeida da Silva, Rithiele Cristina de Oliveira, Ricardo de Oliveira, Farhad Ullah, Asmat Ullah Khan, Norberto Cysne Coimbra,

It has been proposed that the post-ictal state is associated with the expression of hypoalgesia. It is clear that the projections among the periaqueductal gray matter (PAG), dorsal raphe nucleus (DRN) and locus coeruleus (LC) play a role in pain management. These mesencephalic structures have direct reciprocal opioid and monoaminergic ... Read more >>
