Neuroprotective roles of the P2Y[subscript 2] nucleotide receptor
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2014)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most prevalent neurodegenerative disease. AD is an important disease to study because of the high cost of care for ...
Mechanisms of salivary gland cell proliferation in vitro by P2Y2R activation
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
Sjögren's syndrome (SS) and the side-effects of γ-radiation therapies for head and neck cancers cause salivary gland dysfunction. Salivary gland regeneration has been considered to be a very promising approach for restoring ...
The role of the P2Y2 nucleotide receptor in salivary gland regeneration
([University of Missouri--Columbia], 2014)
Salivary gland dysfunction affects millions of Americans whose quality of life is severely impacted by dry mouth, oral bacterial infections, poor nutrition, and other disorders that are associated with decreased saliva ...
Role of the P2Y2 nucleotide receptor in inflammation and inflammatory diseases
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2015)
Nucleotides are released from cells in response to tissue damage and activate P2X and P2Y receptors on the cell surface to regulate inflammation, a critical process for wound repair. During inflammation, leukocytes are ...
The role of the P2X7 nucleotide receptor in salivary gland inflammation
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
Salivary gland inflammation is a hallmark of Sjogren's syndrome (SS), a common autoimmune disease characterized by lymphocytic infiltration and the consequent impairment of the salivary gland and loss of saliva secretion, ...
