Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a key neurotrophic factor in the brain. It plays an important role in the etiopathogenesis and pharmacotherapy of mental disorders, such as depression or schizophrenia. In recent years, studies have shown that cognitive processes, which are impaired in the course of mental disorders, significantly change BDNF(More)
BACKGROUND Cognitive function deficits caused by impaired neurogenesis of the brain structures are considered an important pathogenic factor in many neurological and mental diseases such as schizophrenia and depression. The aim of the study was to determine the effect of the enriched environment on cognitive functions and antidepressant-like effect of(More)
Epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in genes and gene expression that do not involve DNA nucleotide sequences. Epigenetic modifications include DNA methylation, several forms of histone modifications, and microRNA expression. Because of its dynamic nature, epigenetics provides a link between the genome and the environment and fills the gap between(More)
It has been reported that methylated analog of resveratrol, 3,4,5,4′-trans-tetramethoxystilbene (DMU-212), demonstrates strong antiproliferative, and proapoptotic activity. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of DMU-212 on the activation of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB), activator protein-1 (AP-1), and signal transducer and activator of(More)
We develop a 128Gb 3b/cell NAND Flash memory based on 20nm fully planar cell process technology. The planar cell allows the memory cell to be scaled in both the wordline (WL) and bitline (BL) directions, resulting in a small 3b/cell memory device. The sensing scheme is based on a ramping technique that allows the detection of hard and soft states in a(More)
BACKGROUND Schizophrenia is a group of mental disorders of unclear origin, affecting around 1% of global population, most commonly young people. Of various treatment methods, pharmacotherapy using atypical neuroleptics such as aripiprazole (ARI) and olanzapine (OLA) seems to be the most effective. The aim of this paper was to show that prenatal stress(More)
Resveratrol is the most extensively studied stilbene derivative. We previously showed that methylthiostilbenes were more effective inhibitors of CYP1A1 and 1B1 activity than resveratrol. In this study, we investigated whether resveratrol and its methylthio-substituted derivatives, i.e. 3-M-4′-MTS (S2), 3,5-DM-4′-MTS (S5) and 3,4,5-TM-4′-MTS (S7) could(More)
