1-42 beta-Amyloid peptide requires PDK1/nPKC/Rac 1 pathway to induce neuronal death
(Nature Publishing Group, 2013-01)
1-42 beta-Amyloid (A beta(1-42)) peptide is a key molecule involved in the development of Alzheimer's disease. Some of its effects are manifested at the neuronal morphological level. These morphological changes involve ...
Effects of FTY720 on brain neurogenic niches in vitro and after kainic acid-induced injury
(Biomed Central, 2017-07-24)
Background: FTY720 (fingolimod, Gilenya (TM)) is an oral, blood-brain barrier (BBB)-passing drug approved as immunomodulatory treatment for relapsing-remitting form of the multiple sclerosis (MS). In addition, FTY720 exerts ...
The Link of Inflammation and Neurodegeneration in Progressive Multiple Sclerosis
(Biomed Central, 2016-05-24)
Progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) is characterized clinically by the accumulation of neurological disability without unequivocal recovery. Understanding the mechanisms that determine entering in this stage of the disease ...
A beta oligomers promote oligodendrocyte differentiation and maturation via integrin beta 1 and Fyn kinase signaling
(Nature Publishing Group, 2019-06-06)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by a progressive cognitive decline that correlates with the levels of amyloid beta-peptide (A beta) oligomers. Strong evidences connect changes of oligodendrocyte function with the ...
Inflammation in stroke: the role of cholinergic, purinergic and glutamatergic signaling
The inflammatory response is a major factor in stroke pathophysiology and contributes to secondary neuronal damage in both acute and chronic stages of the ischemic injury. Recent work in experimental cerebral ischemia has ...
Organotypic Cultures as a Model to Study Adult Neurogenesis in CNS Disorders
Neural regeneration resides in certain specific regions of adult CNS. Adult neurogenesis occurs throughout life, especially from the subgranular zone of hippocampus and the subventricular zone, and can be modulated in ...
