    Increasing evidence suggests that the concentrations of cyclic guanosine 3′5′-rnonophosphate (cGMP) in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) may reflect central cholinergic activity. When the concentrations of this nucleotide in the CSF from 28 schizophrenic patients (13 without and 15 with...

    The article discusses the cerebrospinal fluid and monoamine and glucolytic metabolites in Alzheimer's disease. Determinations of acid monoamine metabolites in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) give valid information on the metabolism of the corresponding amines in the brain tissue. The monoamine...

    The d-amino acid oxidase activator (DAOA) protein regulates the function of d-amino oxidase (DAO), an enzyme that catalyzes the oxidative deamination of d-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine ( D-DOPA) and d-serine. D-DOPA is converted to l-3,4-DOPA, a precursor of dopamine, whereas d-serine participates...

    The Kearns-Sayre syndrome is a mitochondrial disorder (generally due to mitochondrial DNA deletions) that causes ophthalmoplegia, retinopathy, ataxia and brain abnormalities such as leukoencephalopathy. In this syndrome, the choroid plexus epithelial cells, unlike brain cells, are greatly...

    Previous research has shown that offspring of females with low cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) concentrations are less likely to survive the first year of life than are offspring of females with high CSF 5-HIAA concentrations. In addition, studies of free-ranging...

    Rationale: Accumulating evidence suggests that the primary symptoms of schizophrenia may be associated with altered central glutamate transmission. LY2140023 monohydrate is the methionine prodrug of the selective mGlu receptor agonist LY404039 and is currently being assessed for the treatment of...

    Neurodegenerative diseases, including the spinocerebellar ataxias (SCA), would benefit from the identification of reliable biomarkers that could serve as disease subtype-specific and stage-specific indicators for the development and monitoring of treatments. We analyzed the cerebrospinal fluid...
