Amyloid beta (Abeta) oligomers accumulate in brain tissue of Alzheimer disease patients and are related to pathogenesis. The precise mechanisms by which Abeta oligomers cause neurotoxicity remain unresolved. In this study, we investigated the role of ionotropic glutamate receptors on the intracellular Ca2+ overload caused by Abeta. Using rat cortical(More)
A role for neuropeptide receptors in glial tumorigenesis has recently been proposed. Although angiotensin receptors are known to mediate proliferative effects in many cell types, including brain astrocytes, the possible participation of these receptors in glial tumorigenesis remains unknown. In the present study, we have examined the expression of the(More)
