NTE-related esterase (NRE) is a novel endoplasmic reticulum-anchored lysophospholipase with high homology to neuropathy target esterase (NTE). However, little is known about the regulation of NRE protein. In the current study, we investigated the degradation pathways of mouse NRE (mNRE) in mammalian cells. Based on experiments with inhibitors and inducer of(More)
Tri-ortho-cresyl phosphate (TOCP) is an organophosphorus ester and has been widely used in industry. It is found that TOCP induced delayed neurotoxicity in humans and sensitive animal species. However, the mechanism of TOCP-induced neural cytotoxicity remains unclear. In this study, we studied whether autophagy is involved in TOCP-induced neural(More)
In mice, lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) was found to be a physiological substrate of neuropathy target esterase, which is also bound by organophosphates that cause a delayed neuropathy in human and some animals. However, the mechanism responsible for causing the different symptoms in mice and humans that are exposed to neuropathic organophosphates still(More)
