Abstract: The hypoxia-responsive cytokine erythropoietin (EPO) provides neuroprotective effects in the damaged brain during ischemic events and neurodegenerative diseases. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the EPO/EPO receptor (EPOR) endogenous system between astrocyte and oligodendrocyte precursor cell (OPC) under hypoxia. We report here elevated EPO mRNA levels and protein release in cultured astrocytes following hypoxic stimulation by quantitative RT-PCR and ELISA. Furthermore, the EPOR gene expressions… Show more
