    Kynurenine pathway is gaining more and more attention every day in biomedical research since this catabolic route for tryptophan decomposition is not only implicated in different neurological disorders, but also possesses neuroactive metabolites with different biological properties, such as...

    Arsenical exposure can cause defects in tile central nervous system, yet the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms are largely unknown. We have recently demonstrated that sodium arsenite induces apoptosis of cultured cortical and cerebellar neurons, suggesting that arsenite-induced...

    Microglia, the resident inflammatory cells of the CNS, are the only CNS cells that express the fractalkine receptor (CX3CR1). Using three different in vivo models, we show that CX3CR1 deficiency dysregulates microglial responses, resulting in neurotoxicity. Following peripheral...

    Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV) vectors are one of the most promising vehicles for in vivo gene delivery to the Central Nervous System because of high titers and the absence of neuro-toxicity. In addition to the classic serotype capsids, it is possible to construct chimeric, or mosaic serotypes...

    The article offers information on neurotoxicity caused by local anesthetics. One of the mechanisms of local anesthetic neurotoxicity is an extreme increase in intracellular Ca2+ concentration produced by lidocaine. Also, lidocaine directly disrupts the nerve membrane and produces nerve injury,...

    The endogenous polyamines (spermine, spermidine, and putrescine) are present at relatively high concentrations in the mammalian brain and play crucial roles in a variety of aspects of cell functioning. Stroke is the third most common cause of death and the leading cause of disability among...

    Azaspiracids (AZAs) are a group of marine toxins recently described that currently includes 20 members. Not much is known about their mechanism of action, although the predominant analog in nature, AZA-1 targets several organs in vivo, including the central nervous system, and exhibits high...

    At the end of the 1980s, it was clearly demonstrated that cells produce nitric oxide and that this gaseous molecule is involved in the regulation of the cardiovascular, immune and nervous systems, rather than simply being a toxic pollutant. In the CNS, nitric oxide has an array of functions,...
