Although nitric oxide (NO) induces neuronal cell death under some conditions, it also can prevent apoptosis resulting from growth factor withdrawal. We investigated the molecular mechanism by which NO protects undifferentiated and differentiated PC12 cells from trophic factor deprivation-induced apoptosis. PC12 cells underwent apoptotic death in association(More)
alpha-Synuclein is a presynaptic protein that accumulates abnormally in Lewy bodies of Parkinson's disease (PD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). Its physiological function and role in neuronal death remain poorly understood. Recent immunohistochemical studies suggest that cell cycle-related phenomena may play a role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's(More)
BACKGROUND Oxidative stress-induced cell damage is common in the etiology of several neurobiological disorders, including Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. In a case study, nobiletin-rich Citrus reticulata peels could prevent the progression of cognitive impairment in donepezil-preadministered Alzheimer's disease patients. OBJECTIVE In this(More)
