BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Despite side effects including N-methyl-d-aspartate-mediated neurotoxicity, recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator (rtPA) remains the only approved acute treatment for ischemic stroke. Memantine, used for treatment of Alzheimer disease, is an antagonist for N-methyl-d-aspartate receptors. We investigated whether memantine could(More)
Although the extracellular serine protease tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) is involved in pathophysiological processes such as learning and memory, anxiety, epilepsy, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease, information about its regional, cellular, and subcellular distribution in vivo is lacking. In the present study, we observed, in healthy mice and rats, the(More)
The unfolded protein response (UPR) is an endoplasmic reticulum (ER) -related stress conserved pathway that aims to protect cells from being overwhelmed. However, when prolonged, UPR activation converts to a death signal, which relies on its PERK-eIF2α branch. Overactivation of the UPR has been implicated in many neurological diseases, including cerebral(More)
