In vivo modification of Abeta plaque toxicity as a novel neuroprotective lithium-mediated therapy for Alzheimer’s disease pathology
(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, ...
Regional difference in inflammatory response to LPS-injection in the brain: Role of microglia cell density
To elucidate whether density of cells could contribute to the extent of microglial activation, we performed in vitro assays using three different densities of N13 microglia stimulated with LPS. Our results showed that ...
AICAR Stimulates the Pluripotency Transcriptional Complex in Embryonic Stem Cells Mediated by PI3K, GSK3β, and β-Catenin
(American Chemical Society, 2020)
Pluripotent stem cells maintain the property of self-renewal and differentiate into all cell types under clear environments. Though the gene regulatory mechanism for pluripotency has been investigated in recent years, it ...
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 ...
Neocortical tissue recovery in severe congenital obstructive hydrocephalus after intraventricular administration of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells
BACKGROUND: In obstructive congenital hydrocephalus, cerebrospinal fluid accumulation is associated with high intracranial pressure and the presence of periventricular edema, ischemia/hypoxia, damage of the white matter, ...
White Button Mushroom Extracts Modulate Hepatic Fibrosis Progression, Inflammation, and Oxidative Stress In Vitro and in LDLR-/- Mice
Liver fibrosis can be caused by non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), among other conditions. We performed a study to analyze the effects of a nontoxic, water-soluble extract of the edible mushroom Agaricus bisporus (AB) ...
