Age-dependent decrease in glutamine synthetase expression in the hippocampal astroglia of the triple transgenic Alzheimer's disease mouse model : mechanism for deficient glutamatergic transmission?
(BioMed Central, 2011-07-30)
Astrocytes are fundamental for brain homeostasis and the progression and outcome of many neuropathologies including Alzheimer's disease (AD). In the triple transgenic mouse model of AD (3xTg-AD) generalised hippocampal ...
Increased expression of cystine/glutamate antiporter in multiple sclerosis
(BioMed Central, 2011-06-03)
Background: Glutamate excitotoxicity contributes to oligodendrocyte and tissue damage in multiple sclerosis (MS). Intriguingly, glutamate level in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid of MS patients is elevated, a feature which ...
Isolation of mineralizing Nestin+ Nkx6.1+ vascular muscular cells from the adult human spinal cord
(BioMed Central, 2011-10-10)
Background: The adult central nervous system (CNS) contains different populations of immature cells that could possibly be used to repair brain and spinal cord lesions. The diversity and the properties of these cells in ...
