    Background: The lipoprotein lipase (LPL) hydrolyses circulating triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins. Thereby, LPL acts as a metabolic gate-keeper for fatty acids partitioning between adipose tissue for storage and skeletal muscle primarily for energy use. Transgenic mice that markedly over-express...

    We previously reported damage and elevated biogenesis in cardiac mitochondria of a type 1 diabetic mouse model and proposed that mitochondria are one of the major targets of oxidative stress. In this study, we targeted overexpression of the mitochondrial antioxidant protein manganese superoxide...

L.; Morazzoni, P.; Bombardelli, E.; Riva, A.; Marin, P. P.; Inestrosa, N. C. // Current Alzheimer Research;Mar2010, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p126 

    The use of natural compounds is an interesting stratagem in the search of drugs with therapeutic potential for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD). We report here the effect of the hyperforin derivative (IDN5706, tetrahydrohyperforin), a semi-synthetic derivative of the St. John's Wort, on...

    Background: Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease, especially affecting the hippocampus. Impairment of cognitive and memory functions is associated with amyloid ß-peptide-induced oxidative stress and alterations in lipid metabolism. In this scenario, the dual...

    Soluble amyloid β (Aβ) oligomers cause memory loss and synaptic dysfunction in Alzheimer disease (AD). Despite intensive studies on Aβ assembly in vitro and in vivo, the localization and cellular mechanism of Aβ oligomerization are not fully understood. Previously, we demonstrated...

    BackgroundThe present study examined the inhibitory action of temporary treatment with an angiotensin type 1 (AT1) receptor blocker (ARB) on vascular remodeling using hypertensive mice with overexpression of the human renin (hRN) and angiotensinogen (hANG) genes.MethodshRN/hANG transgenic mice...

    Oxidative stress is involved in many age-associated diseases, as well as in the aging process itself. The development of interventions to reduce oxidative stress is hampered by the absence of sensitive detection methods that can be used in live animals. We generated transgenic mice expressing...

    The article focuses on the neuroprotective effect of sodium valproate to the motor neurons of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). To determine the effect of an antiepileptic drug, the researchers used transgenic mice carrying mutations in superoxide dismutase-1 (Sod 1) as mouse...

    Vascular smooth muscle cells are involved in deposition of amyloid in brain blood vessels. Accumulation of amyloid-β peptide (Aβ) in cultured brain vascular smooth muscle cells that overexpress human amyloid-β precursor protein (APP) Swedish, is strongly enhanced by exposure to iron...
