In Huntington disease (HD), there is increasing evidence for a link between mutant huntingtin expression, mitochondrial dysfunction, energetic deficits and neurodegeneration but the precise nature, causes and order of these events remain to be determined. In this work, our objective was to evaluate mitochondrial respiratory function in intact,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Parkinson's disease (PD) is usually diagnosed clinically from classical motor symptoms, while definitive diagnosis is made postmortem, based on the presence of Lewy bodies and nigral neuron cell loss. α-Synuclein (ASYN), the main protein component of Lewy bodies, clearly plays a role in the neurodegeneration that characterizes PD.(More)
Microorganisms can support environmental restoration by biodegradation of hydrocarbons but the mechanism of this process has been not described in detail yet. We present the effect of benzene derivatives on Raoultella ornithinolytica M03 cell composition. Comparison of the cell response after short-term and long-term stress revealed significant differences(More)
