alpha-Synuclein (alpha-Syn) is a 14 kDa protein of unknown function that has been implicated in the pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease (PD). Here, we show that alpha-Syn-/- mice are viable and fertile, exhibit intact brain architecture, and possess a normal complement of dopaminergic cell bodies, fibers, and synapses. Nigrostriatal terminals of(More)
The lateral walls of the forebrain lateral ventricles are the richest source of stem cells in the adult mammalian brain. These stem cells give rise to new olfactory neurons that are renewed throughout life. The neurons originate in the subventricular zone (SVZ), migrate within the rostral extension (RE) of the SVZ along the rostral migratory stream (RMS)(More)
The subcellular localization 46100 Burjasot of the synucleins has not been established definitively, Spain and suggested sites of action include the presynaptic 3 Although its physiological activity remains unclear, Summary ␣-Syn has been implicated in the etiology of two common neurodegenerative disorders, Alzheimer's disease ␣-Synuclein (␣-Syn) is a 14(More)
Upon entry into the central nervous system (CNS), serum insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-I) modulates neuronal growth, survival, and excitability. Yet mechanisms that trigger IGF-I entry across the blood-brain barrier remain unclear. We show that neuronal activity elicited by electrical, sensory, or behavioral stimulation increases IGF-I input in activated(More)
The ventral septum of the reptile Podarcis hispánica has been studied using cytoarchitectonical and Golgi methods as well as electron microscopy techniques. The ventral septum is located in the medial wall of the telencephalon, just ventral to the dorsal septum. 2 different cell masses or nuclei can be easily appreciated in this structure: the(More)
According to ultrastructure, size and location within the dorsal cortex of Lacerta galloti, six basic types of neuronal somata are described in this study. In the outer plexiform layer only few neuronal somata with nuclear invaginations can be detected (type A). In the granular stratum, large neuronal somata (type B) receiving axo-somatic synapses and(More)
According to ultrastructure, size, and location within the lateral region of the cerebral cortex of Lacerta galloti, four basic types of neuronal somata are described: a) large neuronal somata of the granular stratum, b) neuronal somata having large nuclear invaginations, c) medium size somata of the granular layer with abundant lipofuscine granules, and d)(More)
According to ultrastructure, size, and location within the medial cortex of Lacerta galloti, seven basic kinds of neuronal somata are described in this study. In the outer plexiform layer of the medial cortex only a few somata can be detected. There, moreover some oligodendroglia and microglia cells a few neuronal somata showing conspicuous nuclear(More)
