The volatile anesthetic, isoflurane, protects the heart from ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. Aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (ALDH2) is thought to be an endogenous mechanism against ischemia-reperfusion injury possibly through detoxification of toxic aldehydes. We investigated whether cardioprotection by isoflurane depends on activation of ALDH2.Anesthetized(More)
The neuroprotective effects of 3,6'-disinapoyl sucrose (DISS) from Radix Polygala against glutamate-induced SH-SY5Y neuronal cells injury were evaluated in the present study. SH-SY5Y neuronal cells were pretreated with glutamate (8 mM) for 30 min followed by cotreatment with DISS for 12 h. Cell viability was determined by(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most prevalent neurodegenerative disease in the elderly, leads to progressive loss of memory and cognitive deficits. Amyloid-β protein (Aβ) in the brain is thought to be the main cause of memory loss in AD. Melatonin, an indole hormone secreted by the pineal gland, has been reported to produce neuroprotective effects. We(More)
Beta-amyloid peptide (Aβ) aggregated in the brain is the main pathological characteristic of Alzheimer's disease (AD), and a significant decrease in the concentration of arginine vasopressin (AVP) in the brain of AD patients has been reported. Our recent study shows that intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) injection of AVP protects against Aβ-induced(More)
Alzheimer disease (AD), a progressive neurodegenerative disorder, is characterized by cognitive decline and the accumulation of senile plaques in the brain. Amyloid β protein (Aβ) in the plaques is thought to be responsible for the memory loss in AD patients. [Gly14]-humanin (HNG), a derivative of humanin (HN), has much stronger neuroprotective effects than(More)
Rattin, a specific derivative of humanin in rats, shares the ability with HN to protect neurons against amyloid β (Aβ) peptide-induced cellular toxicity. However, it is still unclear whether Rattin can protect against Aβ-induced deficits in cognition and synaptic plasticity in rats. In the present study, we observed the effects of Rattin and Aβ31-35 on the(More)
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease (AD) in the elderly. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a modulator in T2DM therapy, has been shown to have neuroprotective properties. However, the native GLP-1 can be rapidly degraded by the enzyme dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP IV); the neuroprotective mechanism of GLP-1 in the central(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the effects of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) pretreatment on beta amyloid protein (Abeta) induced impairment of in vivo hippocampal long-term potentiation (LTP) in the CA1 region of rats. METHODS Thirty-six adult male SD rats were randomly divided into six groups (n = 6): control, Abeta25-35, BDNF, (0.02 microg, 0.1 microg,(More)
In the molecule of the centrosymmetric title compound, [Co(C(25)H(20)N(2)O(5))(2)(H(2)O)(4)](ClO(4))(2)·6H(2)O, the Co atom is octa-hedrally coordinated by four water mol-ecules lying in the equatorial plane and two monodentate carboxyl-ate groups from two dicarboxylate ligands. The crystal structure involves O-H⋯O and O-H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds..
