Neurotransmitter signaling in the pathophysiology of microglia
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2013)
Microglial cells are the resident immune cells of the central nervous system. In the resting state, microglia are highly dynamic and control the environment by rapidly extending and retracting motile processes. Microglia ...
Differential Neuroprotective Effects of 5 '-Deoxy-5 '-Methylthioadenosine
(Public Library Science, 2014-03-05)
Background: 5'-deoxy-5'-methylthioadenosine (MTA) is an endogenous compound produced through the metabolism of polyamines. The therapeutic potential of MTA has been assayed mainly in liver diseases and, more recently, in ...
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 ...
