Past studies have shown the protective effects of tea catechins on oxidative cell damage induced by 6-OHDA in PC12 cells. In this study we verified whether or not catechin prevents 6-OHDA-induced oxidative cell damage in primary cultures of rat mesencephalic cells. On exposure to 6-OHDA (200 microM), the cultures showed a marked decrease in cell viability,(More)
Myosin-Va is a Ca2+/calmodulin-regulated unconventional myosin involved in the transport of vesicles, membranous organelles, and macromolecular complexes composed of proteins and mRNA. The cellular localization of myosin-Va has been described in great detail in several vertebrate cell types, including neurons, melanocytes, lymphocytes, auditory tissues, and(More)
This study evaluates the potential neuroprotective properties of amburoside A, a glucoside isolated from Amburana cearensis, on rat mesencephalic cell cultures exposure to the neurotoxin 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA). The parameters determined were cell viability by the 3[4,5-dimethylthiazole-2-il]-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) method, nitric oxide(More)
Naturally occurring plant substances have the potential to prevent oxidative damage in various pathophysiological conditions including neurodegenerative disorders. Recent findings indicate that impaired energy metabolism plays a prominent role in neurodegeneration. The present study investigated whether quebrachitol (2-O-methyl-L-inositol) (QCT), a sugar(More)
In the present work, we showed that a chalcone-enriched fraction (CEF) isolated from the stem bark of a Brazilian medicinal plant, Myracrodruon urundeuva, presents neuroprotective actions on 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced neuronal cell death, in rat mesencephalic cells. In the MTT [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium] assay, which is(More)
The objective of this study is to report and discuss a rare and inflammatory cause of exophthalmos. This report describes a patient with exophthalmos, who was initially diagnosed with euthyroid Graves' with good response to therapy. After 8 years of follow-up, she had recurrence of symptoms and a new evaluation revealed the final diagnosis of orbital(More)
Phospholipases A2 (PLA2s) overexpression is closely associated with the malignant potential of breast cancers. Here, we showed for the first the antitumoral effects of γCdcPLI, a PLA2 inhibitor from Crotalus durissus collilineatus via PI3K/Akt pathway on MDA-MB-231 cell. Firstly, γCdcPLI was more cytotoxic to MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells than other cell(More)
