re-mRNA splicing is one of the fundamental processes in constitutive and regulated gene expression in eukaryotes. During splicing, introns present in primary gene transcripts are removed and exons are ligated to produce translationally competent mRNAs. The basic mechanism of intron excision is similar in all eukaryotes. The reaction is mediated by the(More)
When given orally to a transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer disease, cyclohexanehexol stereoisomers inhibit aggregation of amyloid beta peptide (Abeta) into high-molecular-weight oligomers in the brain and ameliorate several Alzheimer disease-like phenotypes in these mice, including impaired cognition, altered synaptic physiology, cerebral Abeta pathology(More)
Ciglitazone, rosiglitazone, and pioglitazone belong to a relatively new class of antidiabetic agents referred to as thiazolidinediones (TZDs). Later, TZDs were found to be peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-gamma agonists and to elicit anti-inflammatory effects in both in vitro and in vivo models in response to stimuli such as(More)
Alzheimer's disease is characterized by amyloid deposits in the parenchyma and vasculature of the brain. The plaques are mainly composed of amyloid beta (Abeta) peptides ending in residues 40 and 42. Novel longer Abeta peptides were found in brain homogenates of mouse models of Alzheimer's disease and human brain tissue of patients carrying the familial(More)
