Clinical studies have indicated a link between Parkinson's disease (PD) and Type 2 Diabetes. Although preclinical studies have examined the effect of high-fat feeding on dopamine function in brain reward pathways, the effect of diet on neurotransmission in the nigrostriatal pathway, which is affected in PD and parkinsonism, is less clear. We hypothesized(More)
Protein kinase A is a prototypical phosphoryl transferase, sharing its catalytic core (PKA-C) with the entire kinase family. PKA-C substrate recognition, active site organization, and product release depend on the enzyme's conformational transitions from the open to the closed state, which regulate its allosteric cooperativity. Here, we used equilibrium(More)
Leukocytes have been investigated during the past decade for their roles in secondary tissue damage after ischemia/reperfusion injury. Peptide PRARIY, a synthetic fibronectin peptide, has shown an anti-adhesion effect in in vitro studies. Previous studies have demonstrated that anti-adhesion agents lead to reductions in apoptosis. The purpose of the present(More)
To determine the effect of thyroid hormones (TH) on cerebral tissue malondialdehyde (MDA) content and accumulation of MDA-bound proteins, hyperthyroid rats and hypothyroid rats were compared to euthyroid controls. Hyperthyroidism was induced by daily injection of l-3,5, 3'-triiodothyronine (15 ug (100 g)-1) intraperitoneally daily for 10 days.(More)
