RIPK1 is a critical modulator of both tonic and TLR-responsive inflammatory and cell death pathways in human macrophage differentiation
(Springer Nature, 2018)
In this study, we took advantage of human-induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) and CRISPR/Cas9 technology to investigate the potential roles of RIPK1 in regulating hematopoiesis and macrophage differentiation, proinflammatory ...
Peripheral Inflammation Enhances Microglia Response and Nigral Dopaminergic Cell Death in an in vivo MPTP Model of Parkinson’s Disease
(Frontiers Media, 2018)
The impact of systemic inflammation in nigral dopaminergic cell loss remains unclear. Here, we have investigated the role of peripheral inflammation induced by systemic lipopolysaccharide (LPS) administration in the ...
Preliminary Studies of the Toxicity of Agaricus Bisporous Aqueous Enzymatic Extracts (AbAEE) In Rats
(Avens Publishing Group, 2018)
The health benefits of extracts from Agaricus bisporus greatly extend its use as components of new functional foods for the treatment and prevention of diseases, rather than restricting it to a good food with high nutritional ...
HERC1 Ubiquitin Ligase Is Required for Hippocampal Learning and Memory
(Frontiers Media, 2020)
Mutations in the human HERC1 E3 ubiquitin ligase protein develop intellectual disability. The tambaleante (tbl) mouse carries a HERC1 mutation characterized by cerebellar ataxia due of adult cerebellar Purkinje cells death ...
Human Pluripotent Stem Cell-Derived Neural Cellsas a Relevant Platform for Drug Screening inAlzheimer’s Disease
Extracellular amyloid-beta deposition and intraneuronal Tau-laden neurofibrillary tanglesare prime features of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The pathology of AD is very complex and still notfully understood, since different ...
Enhancing microtubule stabilization rescues cognitive deficits and ameliorates pathological phenotype in an amyloidogenic Alzheimer’s disease model
(Nature Research, 2020)
In Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and other tauopathies, microtubule destabilization compromises axonal and synaptic integrity contributing to neurodegeneration. These diseases are characterized by the intracellular accumulation ...
Distinct disease-sensitive GABAergic neurons in the perirhinal cortex of Alzheimer's mice and patients
(Wiley Open Access, 2019)
Neuronal loss is the best neuropathological substrate that correlates with cortical atrophy and dementia in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Defective GABAergic neuronal functions may lead to cortical network hyperactivity and ...
Amyloid-β impairs the phagocytosis of dystrophic synapses by astrocytes in Alzheimer's disease
Reactive astrocytes and dystrophic neurites, most aberrant presynaptic elements, are found surrounding amyloid-β plaques in Alzheimer's disease (AD). We have previously shown that reactive astrocytes enwrap, phagocytose, ...
Arginine deprivation alters microglial polarity and synergizes with radiation to eradicate non-arginine-auxotrophic glioblastoma tumors
(American Society for Clinical Investigation, 2022)
New approaches for the management of glioblastoma (GBM) are an urgent and unmet clinical need. Here, we illustrate that the efficacy of radiotherapy for GBM is strikingly potentiated by concomitant therapy with the ...
Galectin‑3, a novel endogenous TREM2 ligand, detrimentally regulates infammatory response in Alzheimer’s disease
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease in which the formation of extracellular aggregates of amyloid beta (Aβ) peptide, fibrillary tangles of intraneuronal tau and microglial activation are ...
