A Gram-negative, strictly aerobic and heterotrophic, non-spore-forming bacterial strain, designated LM22(T), was isolated from activated sludge of a sequencing batch reactor for the treatment of malachite green effluent. Cells of strain LM22(T) were slightly curved to straight rods (0.3-0.5×0.6-1.0μm) and motile by a single polar flagellum. Strain LM22(T)(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD), a progressive neurodegenerative disorder, is pathologically characterized by the progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNpc) and the presence of deposits of aggregated α-synuclein in intracellular inclusions known as Lewy bodies (LB). A highly localized inflammatory response mediated by(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterized pathologically by the relatively preferential loss of dopaminergic neurons with resultant depletion of striatal dopamine and presence of Lewy bodies mainly composed by alpha-synuclein (alpha-SYN) in the remaining neurons in the substantia nigra. A lot of evidence suggests that the aggregation of alpha-SYN play an(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the protective effect of nicotinamide on 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1, 2, 3, 6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-induced Parkinson's disease (PD) in mouse model and its mechanisms. METHODS Parkinson's disease was induced by injection of MPTP in adult male C57BL/6 mice, nicotinamide (500 mg/kg,i.p.) was given prior to subacute (30 mg/kg/d × 5 d,i.p.)(More)
