Peroxides are generated continuously in cells that consume oxygen. Among the different peroxides, hydrogen peroxide is the molecule that is formed in highest quantities. In addition, organic hydroperoxides are synthesized as products of cellular metabolism. Generation and disposal of peroxides is a very important process in the human brain, because cells of(More)
A population of neurons in the caudal medulla generates the rhythmic activity underlying breathing movements. Although this neuronal network has attracted great attention for studying neuronal aspects of synaptic transmission, functions of glial cells supporting this neuronal activity remain unclear. To investigate the role of astrocytes in the respiratory(More)
Astroglia-rich primary cultures from rat brain were used to investigate the presence in glial cells of Nepsilon-(carboxymethyl)lysine (CML), an advanced glycation endproduct. Westernblot analysis of homogenates of rat brain as well as of astroglia-rich cultures demonstrated the presence of CML-modified proteins in these samples. Immunocytochemical staining(More)
