      Age-dependent accumulation of soluble amyloid β (Aβ) oligomers reverses the neuroprotective effect of soluble amyloid precursor protein-α (sAPPα) by modulating phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt-GSK- 3β pathway in Alzheimer mouse model  [Article]

      Jiménez, Sebastián; Torres, Manuel; Vizuete Chacón, María Luisa; Sánchez Varo, Raquel María; Sánchez Mejías, Elisabeth; Trujillo Estrada, Laura Isabel; Carmona Cuenca, Irene; Caballero, Cristina M.; Ruano Caballero, Diego; Gutiérrez, Antonia (American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Inc., 2011)
      Neurotrophins, activating the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway, control neuronal survival and plasticity. Alterations in NGF, BDNF, IGF-1, or insulin signaling are implicated in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer disease. We have ...

      Disruption of Amyloid Plaques Integrity Affects the Soluble Oligomers Content from Alzheimer Disease Brains  [Article]

      Jiménez, Sebastián; Navarro Garrido, Victoria; Moyano, Javier; Sánchez Mico, María; Torres, Manuel; Dávila, José Carlos; Vizuete Chacón, María Luisa; Gutiérrez, Antonia; Vitorica Ferrández, Francisco Javier (Public Library of Science, 2014)
      The implication of soluble Abeta in the Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathology is currently accepted. In fact, the content of soluble extracellular Abeta species, such as monomeric and/or oligomeric Abeta, seems to correlate ...

      Distinct Microglial Responses in Two Transgenic Murine Models of TAU Pathology  [Article]

      Romero Molina, Carmen; Navarro Garrido, Victoria; Sánchez Varo, Raquel María; Jiménez Muñoz, Sebastián; Fernández Valenzuela, Juan José; Sánchez Mico, María; Muñoz Castro, Clara; Gutiérrez, Antonia; Vitorica Ferrández, Francisco Javier; Vizuete Chacón, María Luisa (Frontiers Media Research Foundation, 2018-11-14)
      Microglial cells are crucial players in the pathological process of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Microglial response in AD has been principally studied in relation to amyloid-beta pathology ...

      In vivo modification of Abeta plaque toxicity as a novel neuroprotective lithium-mediated therapy for Alzheimer’s disease pathology  [Article]

      Trujillo Estrada, Laura Isabel; Jiménez, Sebastián; Castro, Vanessa de; Torres, Manuel; Baglietto-Vargas, David; Moreno González, Inés; Navarro Garrido, Victoria; Sánchez Varo, Raquel María; Sánchez Mejías, Elisabeth; Dávila, José Carlos; Vizuete Chacón, María Luisa; Gutiérrez, Antonia; Vitorica Ferrández, Francisco Javier (BioMed Central, 2013)
      Background: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is characterized by the abnormal accumulation of extracellular beta-amyloid (Abeta) plaques, intracellular hyperphosphorylated tau, progressive synaptic alterations, axonal dystrophies, ...

      Microglia in Alzheimer’s Disease: Activated, Dysfunctional or Degenerative  [Article]

      Navarro Garrido, Victoria; Sánchez Mejías, Elisabeth; Jiménez Muñoz, Sebastián; Muñoz Castro, Clara; Sánchez Varo, Raquel María; Dávila, José Carlos; Vizuete Chacón, María Luisa; Gutiérrez, Antonia; Vitorica Ferrández, Francisco Javier (Frontiers Media, 2018)
      Microglial activation has been considered a crucial player in the pathological process of multiple human neurodegenerative diseases. In some of these pathologies, such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Multiple Sclerosis, ...

      Sex-dependent calcium hyperactivity due to lysosomal-related dysfunction in astrocytes from APOE4 versus APOE3 gene targeted replacement mice  [Article]

      Larramona Arcas, Raquel; González Arias, Candela; Perea, Gertrudis; Gutiérrez, Antonia; Vitorica Ferrández, Francisco Javier; García Barrera, Tamara; Gómez Ariza, José Luis; Pascua Maestro, Raquel; Ganfornina, María Dolores; Kara, Eleanna; Martínez Vicente, Marta (BMC, 2020)
      Background The apolipoprotein E (APOE) gene exists in three isoforms in humans: APOE2, APOE3 and APOE4. APOE4 causes structural and functional alterations in normal brains, and is the strongest genetic risk factor of the ...

      Soluble phospho‑tau from Alzheimer’s disease hippocampus drives microglial degeneration  [Article]

      Sánchez Mejías, Elisabeth; Navarro Garrido, Victoria; Jiménez, Sebastián; Sánchez Mico, María; Sánchez Varo, Raquel; Núñez Díaz, Cristina; Trujillo Estrada, Laura; Dávila, José Carlos; Vizuete Chacón, María Luisa; Gutiérrez, Antonia; Vitorica Ferrández, Francisco Javier (Springer (part of Springer Nature): Springer Open Choice Hybrid Journals, 2016)
      The role of microglial cells in the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has not been elucidated. Here, we demonstrated the existence of a weak microglial response in human AD hippocampus which is in ...
