In situations of hypoxia, glutamate excitotoxicity induces neuronal death. The release of extracellular adenosine is also triggered and is accompanied by an increase of the stress mediator, corticotrophin-releasing factor (CRF). Adenosine A(2A) receptors contribute to glutamate excitoxicity and their blockade

Multiple sclerosis (MS) frequently starts near the lateral ventricles, which are lined by subventricular zone (SVZ) progenitor cells that can migrate to lesions and contribute to repair. Because MS-induced inflammation may decrease SVZ proliferation and thus limit repair, we studied

International immunopharmacology, 87, 106814-106814 (2020-07-25)
Systemic inflammation induces cognitive impairments via unclear mechanisms. Increasing evidence has suggested complement C3/C3a receptor signaling, a key component of innate immune pathogen defense, plays an important role in cognition and neurodegeneration, whereas its dysfunction is implicated in many neurological

Parkinson's disease (PD) is one common neurodegenerative disease caused by a significant loss of midbrain dopaminergic neurons. Previous reports showed that 7, 8- dihydroxyflavone (7, 8-DHF) as a potent TrkB agonist can mimic BDNF and play neuroprotective roles for mouse

Imbalance of homeostasis causes permanent changes in the body with time. The central nervous system is especially prone to these changes since it possesses limited regenerative capacity. In the retina, neurons are damaged during the aging process, and this eventually

To realize the potential of microRNAs (miRs) as fine-tuning regulators of embryonic neuronal differentiation, it is critical to define their developmental function. Mmu-miR-134 (miR-134) is a powerful inducer of pluripotent stem cell differentiation. However, its functional role during embryonic, neuronal

It is known that circulating angiotensin II (ANG-II) acts on the circumventricular organs (CVOs), which partially lack a normal blood-brain barrier, to stimulate pressor responses, vasopressin (AVP), and oxytocin (OT) secretion, as well as sodium and water intake. Although ANG-II

The lysine acetyltransferases type 3 (KAT3) family members CBP and p300 are important transcriptional co-activators, but their specific functions in adult post-mitotic neurons remain unclear. Here, we show that the combined elimination of both proteins in forebrain excitatory neurons of

Neural stem/progenitor cells (NPCs) express a variety of asparagine-linked oligosaccharide chains, called N-glycans, on the cell surface, and mainly produce hybrid-type and complex-type N-glycans. However, the expression profiles and roles of N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase-V (GnT-V), an enzyme that forms β1,6-branched N-glycans, in
