Essential role of brain-derived neurotrophic factor in adult hippocampal function.
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) regulates neuronal development and function. However, it has been difficult to discern its role in the adult brain in influencing complex behavior. Here, weExpand

STIM2 Regulates Capacitive Ca2+ Entry in Neurons and Plays a Key Role in Hypoxic Neuronal Cell Death
Neurons lacking the calcium sensor STIM2 are protected from hypoxia-induced cell death. Resisting Ischemia Loss of blood flow to the brain—as can occur during a stroke—leads to the death of neurons,Expand

Post-Stroke Inhibition of Induced NADPH Oxidase Type 4 Prevents Oxidative Stress and Neurodegeneration
The identification of NOX4 as a major source of oxidative stress in stroke and demonstration of dramatic protection after stroke in mice by NOX4 deletion or NOX inhibition, opens up new avenues forExpand

Calcium-dependent inactivation of neuronal calcium channels
Calcium ions are ubiquitous intracellular mediators of numerous cellular processes. One of the main mechanisms of Ca2+ entry into the cell involves the opening of Ca2+ channels in the plasmaExpand

Clinical features, pathogenesis, and treatment of myasthenia gravis: a supplement to the Guidelines of the German Neurological Society
Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune antibody-mediated disorder of neuromuscular synaptic transmission. The clinical hallmark of MG consists of fluctuating fatigability and weakness affectingExpand

Contribution of TWIK-Related Acid-Sensitive K+ Channel 1 (TASK1) and TASK3 Channels to the Control of Activity Modes in Thalamocortical Neurons
The thalamocortical network is characterized by rhythmic burst activity during natural sleep and tonic single-spike activity during wakefulness. The change between these two activity modes isExpand

T cell infiltration after chronic constriction injury of mouse sciatic nerve is associated with interleukin-17 expression
Interleukin (IL)-17A, a recently described novel T cell cytokine, orchestrates inflammation in a variety of immune-mediated diseases. In the present investigation, we analyzed the temporal geneExpand

Platelets Contribute to the Pathogenesis of Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis
Rationale: Multiple sclerosis (MS) and its mouse model, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), are inflammatory disorders of the central nervous system (CNS). The function of platelets inExpand

Stromal Interaction Molecules 1 and 2 Are Key Regulators of Autoreactive T Cell Activation in Murine Autoimmune Central Nervous System Inflammation
Calcium (Ca2+) signaling in T lymphocytes is essential for a variety of functions, including the regulation of differentiation, gene transcription, and effector functions. A major Ca2+ entry pathwayExpand

CNS inflammation and neuronal degeneration is aggravated by impaired CD200–CD200R-mediated macrophage silencing
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disabling CNS disorder, characterized by autoimmune inflammatory demyelination and neurodegeneration. CD200, broadly expressed on neurons and endothelial cells,Expand
