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)
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)
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)
