Effects of Cymbopogon citratus and Ferula assa-foetida extracts on glutamate-induced neurotoxicity
Many of CNS diseases can lead to a great quantity of release of glutamate and the extreme glutamate induces neuronal cell damage and death. Here, we wanted to investigate the effects of CymbopogonExpand

Effect of mu and kappa opioids on injury-induced microglial accumulation in leech CNS: involvement of the nitric oxide pathway.
Damage to the leech or mammalian CNS increases nitric oxide (NO) production and causes accumulation of phagocytic microglial cells at the injury site. Opioids have been postulated to modulate variousExpand

Electrophysiological and molecular mechanisms of protection by iron sucrose against phosphine-induced cardiotoxicity: a time course study
Abstract The present study was designed for determining the exact mechanism of cytotoxic action of aluminum phosphide (AlP) in the presence of iron sucrose as the proposed antidote. Rats received AlPExpand

Effect of μ and κ opioids on injury-induced microglial accumulation in leech CNS: Involvement of the nitric oxide pathway
Abstract Damage to the leech or mammalian CNS increases nitric oxide (NO) production and causes accumulation of phagocytic microglial cells at the injury site. Opioids have been postulated toExpand

Evaluation of immunotoxicity induced by propoxure in C57Bl/6 mice.
Insecticides are important candidates for immunotoxicology tests in order to assess the 'No Observable Adverse Effect Level' (NOAEL). Propoxure (PPX), as a carbamate household insecticide, has beenExpand

The Time Course of JNK and P38 Activation in Cerebellar Granule Neurons Following Glucose Deprivation and BDNF Treatment
Low glucose condition induces neuronal cell-death via intracellular mechanisms including mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) signaling pathways. It has been shown that low glucose mediumExpand

Evaluation of Enamel Matrix Derivative (EMD) Teratogenicity on the Rat Embryo Neural Crest Culture
Enamel matrix derivative Emdogain (EMD) is widely used in periodontal treatment in spite of the fact that its effect on the developing embryo has not been elucidated. The aim of this study was toExpand
