Patients affected by medium-chain acyl CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD) deficiency, a frequent inborn error of metabolism, suffer from acute episodes of encephalopathy. However, the mechanisms underlying the neuropathology of this disease are poorly known. In the present study, we investigated the in vitro effect of the medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA), at(More)
Animal venoms have been widely recognized as a major source of biologically active molecules. Bothriurus bonariensis, popularly known as black scorpion, is the arthropod responsible for the highest number of accidents involving scorpion sting in Southern Brazil. Here we reported the first attempt to investigate the neurobiology of B. bonariensis venom (BBV)(More)

Here we(More)
