Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder in which there is a decline of cholinergic function. The symptomatic AD treatment involves the use of ChEIs (cholinesterase inhibitors) as rivastigimine, a dual inhibitor. The human butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) is an enzyme that has specific roles in cholinergic neurotransmission and it has been(More)
Circulating cell-free microRNAs (miRNAs) are stable in many biological fluids and their expression profiles can suffer changes under different physiological and pathological conditions. In the last few years, miRNAs have been proposed as putative noninvasive biomarkers in diagnosis, prognosis and response to treatment for several diseases, including(More)
Lamellipodin protein (Lpd), encoded by the RAPH1 gene, modulates the assembly of actin cytoskeleton through its binding to the Ena/VASPs proteins, and acts in cellular motility and lamelipodial protrusion. The region where RAPH1 gene is located (2q33) is deleted in various types of cancer and the gene expression changes in tumors when compared to normal(More)
