Glial activation and inflammation following brain injury may initiate and maintain the process of neurodegeneration. Both glia and neurons synthesize proinflammatory mediators such as interleukin 1 beta (IL-1beta), cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2), cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), and prostaglandins. The molecular mechanisms by which IL-1beta regulates(More)
Interleukin 1beta induced both nitric oxide synthase 2 (NOS-2) and cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) gene expression in dorsal root ganglion explant culture with increased NOS-2 and COX-2 activities, and corresponding increases in the production of nitric oxide and prostaglandin E(2). The proinflammatory cytokine also increased 8-isoprostaglandin F(2alpha)(More)
