While activation of alpha7 nicotinic receptors protects neurons from a variety of apoptotic insults in vitro, little is known about this neuroprotective action in vivo, especially under amyloidogenic conditions that mimic Alzheimer's disease. We therefore investigated the effects of 4OH-GTS-21, a selective partial agonist for these receptors, on(More)
The mammalian subventricular zone (SVZ) is the largest germinative zone of the adult brain. Progenitor cells generated from the SVZ play important roles during the remyelination process. To determine the functional role of Olig2 in regulating astroglial differentiation in the mouse SVZ, we used the cuprizone mouse model to investigate demyelination. We(More)
The title complex, {[Co2(C18H4O10)(C14H14N4)2]·2H2O} n was synthesized from CoCl2·6H2O, 9,10-dioxo-9,10-dihydro-anthracene-1,4,5,8-tetra-carb-oxy-lic acid (H4AQTC) and 1,2-bis-[(1H-imidazol-1-yl)meth-yl]benzene (o-bix) in water. The anthraquinone unit is located about a crystallographic center of inversion. Each asymmetric unit therefore contains one Co(II)(More)
In the anion of the title compound, (C12H13N2)[Ni(C4N2S2)2], the Ni(II) atom is coordinated by four S atoms from two 1,2-di-cyano-ethene-1,2-di-thiol-ate (mnt) ligands in a suqare-planar geometry. Weak C-H⋯N and C-H⋯S hydrogen bonds between the 1-ethyl-4,4'-bipyridin-1-ium cations and mnt anions and weak π-π inter-actions between the pyridine rings of the(More)
The complete complex anion in the title salt, (C(11)H(19)N(2))(2)[Cu(C(4)N(2)S(2))(2)], has 2/m symmetry while the complete cation is generated by mirror symmetry with the non-H atoms of the alkyl chain lying on the plane. A square-planar geometry based on an S(4) donor set is found in the anion; the Cu-S distance is 2.2663 (5) Å. In the crystal,(More)
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, (C(13)H(11)Cl(2)N(2))(2)[Ni(C(4)N(2)S(2))(2)], contains one-half of a centrosymmetric [Ni(mnt)(2)] anion (where mnt is maleonitrile-dithiol-ate or 1,2-dicyano-1,2-ethyl-enedithiol-ate) and an (E)-1-(3,4-dichloro-benzyl-ideneamino)-4-methyl-pyridinium cation. In the anion, the coordination around the Ni atom is a(More)
The tetra-nuclear copper(II) title complex, [Cu(4)Cl(2)(OH)(4)(C(10)H(8)N(2))(4)](NO(3))(2)·6H(2)O, has a crystallographically imposed centre of symmetry. The metal atoms display a distorted tetragonal-pyramidal coordination geometry, and are linked by two μ(2)- and two μ(3)-hydroxo groups, assuming a chair-like conformation for the Cu(4)O(2) core. In the(More)
