Formation of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species is a precipitating event in an array of neuropathological conditions. In response to excessive reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels, transcriptionally dependent mechanisms drive the up-regulation of ROS scavenging proteins which, in turn, limit the extent of brain damage. Here, we employed a transgenic(More)
Perillyl alcohol (POH) is a monoterpene that has been used orally for the treatment of systemic cancer. However, when used orally significant gastrointestinal side effects and lack of overall efficacy were documented. Recently, in a phase II trial in Brazil for the treatment of temozolomide (TMZ)-resistant malignant gliomas, POH was well tolerated when(More)
Excitotoxic cell death is one of the precipitating events in the development of temporal lobe epilepsy. Of particular prominence is the loss of GABAergic hilar neurons. Although the molecular mechanisms responsible for the selective vulnerability of these cells are not well understood, activation of the extracellular signal-regulated(More)
Imprinted genes are expressed from only one of the parental alleles and are marked epigenetically by DNA methylation and histone modifications. Disruption of normal imprinting leads to abnormal embryogenesis, certain inherited diseases, and is associated with various cancers. In the context of screening for the gene(s) responsible for the alteration of(More)
For network life time, load balancing and scalability, wireless sensor networks have to configure the network based on local management. Clustering algorithm is for satisfying above requirements. A cluster head selection of this algorithm requires to solve additional communication cost and unequal clustering compared with previous clustering algorithm. So,(More)
Adult progenitor cell proliferation in the subgranular zone (SGZ) of the dentate gyrus is a dynamic process that is modulated by an array of physiological process, including locomotor activity and novel environmental stimuli. In addition, pathophysiological events, such as ischemia and status epilepticus (SE), have been shown to stimulate neurogenesis.(More)
Recent advances have shown that atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) is a disease of complement dysregulation. Almost 50% of cases are associated with mutations in the three complement regulatory genes, factor H (HF1), membrane co-factor protein (MCP) and factor I (IF). The corresponding gene products act in concert and affect the same enzyme,(More)
Stridor is a sign of upper airway obstruction. In children, laryngomalacia is the most common cause of chronic stridor, while croup is the most common cause of acute stridor. Generally, an inspiratory stridor suggests airway obstruction above the glottis while an expiratory stridor is indicative of obstruction in the lower trachea. A biphasic stridor(More)
The development of epilepsy is often associated with marked changes in central nervous system cell structure and function. Along these lines, reactive gliosis and granule cell axonal sprouting within the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus are commonly observed in individuals with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Here we used the pilocarpine model of TLE in mice(More)
