Amyloid beta peptides (Abeta) may be neurotoxic during the progression of Alzheimer's disease by eliciting oxidative stress. Exposure of neuronally differentiated SK-N-BE cells to Abeta(25-35) fragment as well as to full-length Abeta(1-40) and Abeta(1-42) induces early and time-dependent generation of oxidative stress that has been evaluated by carefully(More)
BACKGROUND Liver/kidney microsomal antibody type 1 (LKM1) is the marker of type 2 autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) and is detected in up to 6% of patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. It recognises linear and conformational epitopes of cytochrome P450IID6 (CYP2D6) and may have liver damaging activity, provided that CYP2D6 is accessible to effector(More)
The effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) on the spontaneous efflux of [3H]norepinephrine ([3H]NE) were studied in synaptosomes prepared from rat hippocampus and prelabelled with [3H]NE. It had been observed previously that, when synaptosomes were exposed in superfusion to GABA, the basal release of the tritiated catecholamine was enhanced, apparently(More)
