The processing of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) by the secretase family of protease enzymes can be influenced by a variety of diverse factors, including elements of the immune response. In this study, we have investigated the effect of the pro-inflammatory lipopolysaccharide (LPS) on APP processing in rat glial cell cultures derived from both cortex(More)
The inducible form of nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) is an essential element of the immune response, which is expressed primarily in microglial cells within the CNS. Exposure of rat cortical neuronal cells to the pro-inflammatory bacterial endotoxin lipopolysaccharide (LPS) resulted in a significant increase in the expression of the cellular iNOS protein(More)
