Identification of a novel mechanism of blood–brain communication during peripheral inflammation via choroid plexus‐derived extracellular vesicles
Here, we identified release of extracellular vesicles (EVs) by the choroid plexus epithelium (CPE) as a new mechanism of blood–brain communication. Systemic inflammation induced an increase in EVsExpand
Friends or Foes: Matrix Metalloproteinases and Their Multifaceted Roles in Neurodegenerative Diseases
Neurodegeneration is a chronic progressive loss of neuronal cells leading to deterioration of central nervous system (CNS) functionality. It has been shown that neuroinflammation precedesExpand
Amyloid β Oligomers Disrupt Blood–CSF Barrier Integrity by Activating Matrix Metalloproteinases
The blood–CSF barrier (BCSFB) consists of a monolayer of choroid plexus epithelial (CPE) cells that maintain CNS homeostasis by producing CSF and restricting the passage of undesirable molecules andExpand
Functional Genomic Analysis of Candida glabrata-Macrophage Interaction: Role of Chromatin Remodeling in Virulence
Fungal septicemia is an increasingly common complication of immunocompromised patients worldwide. Candida species are the leading cause of invasive mycoses with Candida glabrata being the second mostExpand
Spatial Transcriptomics and In Situ Sequencing to Study Alzheimer’s Disease
Although complex inflammatory-like alterations are observed around the amyloid plaques of Alzheimer's disease (AD), little is known about the molecular changes and cellular interactions thatExpand
The choroid plexus-cerebrospinal fluid interface in Alzheimer's disease: more than just a barrier
The choroid plexus is a complex structure which hangs inside the ventricles of the brain and consists mainly of choroid plexus epithelial (CPE) cells surrounding fenestrated capillaries. These CPEExpand
Stem-cell-derived human microglia transplanted in mouse brain to study human disease
Although genetics highlights the role of microglia in Alzheimer’s disease, one-third of putative Alzheimer’s disease risk genes lack adequate mouse orthologs. Here we successfully engraft humanExpand
Counteracting the effects of TNF receptor‐1 has therapeutic potential in Alzheimer's disease
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia, and neuroinflammation is an important hallmark of the pathogenesis. Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) might be detrimental in AD, though theExpand
Necrosome complex detected in granulovacuolar degeneration is associated with neuronal loss in Alzheimer’s disease
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is characterized by a specific pattern of neuropathological changes, including extracellular amyloid β (Aβ) deposits, intracellular neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs),Expand
An essential role for phosphatidylinositol 3‐kinase in the inhibition of phagosomal maturation, intracellular survival and virulence in Candida glabrata
The yeast class III phosphoinositide 3‐kinase (PI3K) that catalyses production of the lipid signalling molecule, phosphatidylinositol‐3‐phosphate, is primarily implicated in vesicle‐mediatedExpand
