Recent studies of axon-glia and glia-glia communication have emphasized interactivity and interdependence between central nervous system (CNS) components. Concurrently, data from imaging, biochemical, and morphological studies have changed the view of multiple sclerosis (MS) from a neuroinflammatory condition with primary demyelination to one in which(More)
Investigations of functional interactions among axons and glia over the last decade have revealed the extent and complexity of glial-neuronal and glial-glial communication during development, adult function and recovery from injury. These data have profound implications for the understanding of central nervous system (CNS) disorders, which until recently,(More)
Renin plays a critical role in fluid and electrolyte homeostasis by cleaving angiotensinogen to produce Ang peptides. Whilst it has been demonstrated that renin mRNA is expressed in the brain, the distribution of cells responsible for this expression remains uncertain. We have used a transgenic mouse approach in an attempt to address this question. A(More)
ANG II, the main circulating effector hormone of the renin-angiotensin system, is produced by enzymatic cleavage of angiotensinogen. The present study aimed to examine whether targeted deletion of the angiotensinogen gene (Agt) altered brain ANG II receptor density or responsiveness to ANG II. In vitro autoradiography was used to examine the distribution(More)
Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is the most common clonal B-cell disorder characterized by clonal diversity, a relapsing and remitting course, and in its aggressive forms remains largely incurable. Current front-line regimes include agents such as fludarabine, which act primarily via the DNA damage response pathway. Key to this is the transcription(More)
