The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) lumen is chemically complex and crowded with polypeptides in different stages of assembly. ER quality control monitors chaperone-assisted protein folding, stochastic errors and off-pathway intermediates. In acute conditions, potentially toxic polypeptides overflow the capacity of the chaperone system and lead to ER stress.(More)
Interrelation between oxidative stress and neuro-inflammation has been discussed extensively to contribute to neuronal dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders. In this manner, it seems that there is an intriguing link between protein kinase A (PKA), neuronal apoptosis and inflammation. Rat PC12 pheochromocytoma cell can be induced to differentiate into(More)
Anxiety-related disorders are complex illnesses that underlying molecular mechanisms of these complicated emotional disorders are poorly understood. Nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) is the most important regulator of the antioxidant defense system. Its protective actions are not only limited to antioxidative transactivation, but also plays(More)
By the current study, we tried to find out the interactive mechanisms enrolled by Hsp70 and Hsp90 following the 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced oxidative stress. Of heat shock protein (Hsp) family, we have previously evaluated the effects of Hsp90 gene silencing on in vitro model of Parkinson’s disease and its influence on controlling the mechanisms of(More)
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common age-related neurodegenerative disorder that has been shown to be associated with oxidative stress. This phenomenon occurs primarily via generation of 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) in catecholaminergic neurons leading to activation of apoptosis. The 90-kDa heat shock protein (Hsp90) functions as a chaperone in(More)
Choroid plexus epithelial cells (CPECs) as a secretory epithelium are responsible for the secretion of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Beyond this classical tenet, CPECs also synthesize and release many neurotrophic factors such as antioxidants into the CSF, participating in brain homeostasis. In this study, CPECs were isolated from rat’s brain and encapsulated(More)
One of the neuropathological hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the accumulation of beta-amyloid peptides (Aβ) in senile plaques. Aβ-induced oxidative stress is believed to be responsible for degeneration and apoptosis of neurons and consequent cognitive and memory deficits. Here, we investigated the possible neuroprotective effect of the heat shock(More)
Anxiety-related disorders are complex illnesses that underlying molecular mechanisms need to be understood. Mitochondria stand as an important link between energy metabolism, oxidative stress, and anxiety. The nuclear factor, erythroid-derived 2,-like 1(Nrf1) is a member of the cap “n” collar subfamily of basic region leucine zipper transcription factors(More)
Although percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) is more accessible and less time-demanding compared with surgical tracheostomy (ST), it has its own limitations. We introduced a modified PDT technique and brought some surgical knowledge to the bedside to overcome some standard percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy relative contraindications. PDT uses(More)
Several pathways involved in regulation of intracellular protein integrity are known as the protein quality control (PQC) system. Molecular chaperones as the main players are engaged in various aspects of PQC system. According to the importance of these proteins in cell survival, in the present study, we traced endoplasmic reticulum-specific markers and(More)
