NMDA modulates oligodendrocyte differentiation of subventricular zone cells through PKC activation
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2013-12-18)
Multipotent cells from the juvenile subventricular zone (SVZ) possess the ability to differentiate into new neural cells. Depending on local signals, SVZ can generate new neurons, astrocytes, or oligodendrocytes. We ...
Oligodendrocyte differentiation from adult multipotent stem cells is modulated by glutamate
(Nature Publishing Group, 2012-02)
We used multipotent stem cells (MSCs) derived from the young rat subventricular zone (SVZ) to study the effects of glutamate in oligodendrocyte maturation. Glutamate stimulated oligodendrocyte differentiation from SVZ-derived ...
Purinergic signaling: a common pathway for neural and mesenchymal stem cell maintenance and differentiation
Extracellular ATP, related nucleotides and adenosine are among the earliest signaling molecules, operating in virtually all tissues and cells. Through their specific receptors, namely purinergic P1 for nucleosides and P2 ...
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 ...
