Contribution of Pannexin1 to Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis
(Public Library of Science, 2013-06)
Pannexin1 (Panx1) is a plasma membrane channel permeable to relatively large molecules, such as ATP. In the central nervous system (CNS) Panx1 is found in neurons and glia and in the immune system in macrophages and T-cells. ...

(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 ...
Neuronal Hyperactivity Disturbs ATP Microgradients, Impairs Microglial Motility, and Reduces Phagocytic Receptor Expression Triggering Apoptosis/Microglial Phagocytosis Uncoupling
Phagocytosis by microglia is tightly coupled to apoptosis, swiftly removing apoptotic cells and actively maintaining tissue homeostasis, but the neuronal hyperactivity associated with epilepsy disrupts the ATP gradients ...
