Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressive neuronal loss. AD is associated with aberrant processing of the amyloid precursor protein, which leads to the deposition of amyloid-β plaques within the brain. Together with plaques deposition, the hyperphosphorylation of the microtubules associated protein tau and the(More)
Ca2+-handling disturbances play an important role in the genesis of myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. Ischemic preconditioning (IPC) is a powerful strategy to induce tolerance against subsequent ischemic episodes. IPC signaling pathways may be triggered by Ca2+ ion. Since Na+/Ca2+ exchanger 1 (NCX1) participates in modulating intracellular Ca2+(More)
In a basic study at the Andrology Unit, Department of Clinical and Molecular Sciences, Polytechnic University of Marche, Ancona, Italy, we evaluated the pattern of mRNA endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) expression in human blood leucocytes isolated from normozoospermic fertile and asthenozoospermic infertile men to elucidate any pathogenic(More)
