Neurosecretion of Cytokines by N. Paraventricularis and N. Supraopticus of Hypothalamus.- Discovery of New Neurosecretory Cytokines: Proline-rich Peptides Produced by N. Paraventricularis and N. Supraopticus of Hypothalamus.- Interaction of PRP-1 With Cytokines, Hormones and Neurotransmitters.- Antibacterial and Antiviral Activity of PRP-1 and Some Immunological Mechanisms of its Action.- PRP Regulation of T-Lymphocyte Development and Myelopoiesis.- Neuroprotective (Antineurodegenerative) Properties of PRP-1.- Effect of PRP-1 on Tumor Cells.- Basic Biochemical Mechanisms of PRP-1 Action in Different Pathologies
Brain Neurosecretory Cytokines: Immune Response and Neuronal Survival summarizes the biological and chemical data of signal molecules of the brain neuroendocrine immune system, mainly proline-rich peptides, which play an important role in the regulation of immune response, neuronal survival, hematopoiesis, and adaptation. The author also describes the role of PRPs for the protection of neurons against neurodegenerative disturbances and diseases.
Brain Neurosecretory Cytokines: Immune Response and Neuronal Survival will be of great aid to the researchers and students in various areas of neurobiological profile (neurochemistry, neuroendocrinology, neurophysiology, and endocrinology).
