Cerebral capillary sequestration and blood-brain barrier (BBB) permeability to apolipoproteins E2 (apoE2), E3 (apoE3), and E4 (apoE4) and to their complexes with sA beta(1-40), a peptide homologous to the major form of soluble Alzheimer's amyloid beta, were studied in perfused guinea pig brain. Cerebrovascular uptake of three apoE isoforms was low, their(More)
This study tested the hypothesis that protein kinase C (PKC) has dual regulation on norepinephrine (NE)-mediated inositol 1,4, 5-trisphosphate [Ins (1,4,5)P(3)] pathway and vasoconstriction in cerebral arteries from near-term fetal ( approximately 140 gestational days) and adult sheep. Basal PKC activity values (%membrane bound) in fetal and adult cerebral(More)
The apoptosis of β cells induced by hyperglycemia has been associated with p53 mobilization to mitochondria and p53 phosphorylation. Murine double minute 2 (Mdm2) induces the degradation of p53 and thereby protects cells from apoptosis. We studied the effect of glucose at high concentration on the ability of Mdm2 to ubiquitinate p53 and promote its(More)
