Intracellular accumulation of alpha-synuclein (alpha-Syn) as filamentous aggregates is a pathological feature shared by Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies and multiple system atrophy, referred to as synucleinopathies. To understand the mechanisms underlying alpha-Syn aggregation, we established a tetracycline-off inducible transfectant (3D5) of(More)
Clinical and pathological evidence supports the notion that corticobasal degeneration (CBD) and progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) are distinct, but overlapping neurodegenerative tauopathies. Although both disorders are characterized by abnormal accumulation of 4-repeat tau, they display distinct proteolytic profiles of tau species and they have distinct(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effect of vildagliptin alone and in combination with metformin or rosiglitazone on murine hepatic steatosis in diet-induced nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). MATERIALS AND METHODS Male C57BL/6 mice were fed with high fat diet (60 Kcal %) and fructose (40%) in drinking water for 60 days to induce NAFLD. After the(More)
The " International Journal of Pharma and Bio Sciences " (IJPBS) is an international journal in English published quarterly. The aim of IJPBS is to publish peer reviewed research and review articles rapidly without delay in the developing field of pharmaceutical and biological sciences And indexed/catalogued in many more university
Intraneuronal deposition of filamentous tau is a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and related tauopathies. We developed previously a cellular model recapitulating such tau anomaly and demonstrated therein consistent production of 70-kD tau. Importantly, the 70-kD species appears to derive from tau fragments with carboxy-terminal truncation and is larger(More)
