15d-PGJ2 promotes MAPK activation in cardiomyocytes.
By Chintan Koyani on 10/13/2018
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Mouse
Cell Line/Tissue: Cardiomyocytes

Treatment of HL-1 cells (15 min) with increasing 15d-PGJ2 concentrations induced phosphorylation of p38 and p42/44 MAPK (shown in Image). A As pronounced MAPK activation was observed at 15 μM 15d-PGJ2.

Epilepsy Poster

Epilepsy is a brain disease that affects 60 million people globally. More than 20 anti-seizure drugs are currently available, but these do not address the underlying causes of the condition. This poster summarizes current knowledge about the development of the condition and highlights some approaches that have disease-modifying effects in proof-of-concept studies.
