Recent evidence suggests that the oligodendrocyte cell loss observed in multiple sclerosis sufferers is in part mediated by apoptosis. Here we use a human cell line, MO3.13, as a model system to investigate the biochemical processes involved in oligodendroglial cell death. Treatment with staurosporine kills both naive and differentiated cells in a(More)
Similar to their mammalian counterpart, protozoan parasites including Leishmania donovani detoxify methylglyoxal (MG),(1) a toxic ubiquitous product generated in glycolysis pathway. However, it differs in one or more way(s) from the humans. It is known that MG is eliminated either through glyoxalase (GLO)(2) pathway and/or excreted across the cell membrane.(More)
