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 ...
Janus-faced microglia: beneficial and detrimental consequences of microglial phagocytosis
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2013-01)
Microglia are the resident brain macrophages and they have been traditionally studied as orchestrators of the brain inflammatory response during infections and disease. In addition, microglia has a more benign, less explored ...
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 ...
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 ...
