We have treated spinal cord injured rats with demyelination plus Schwann cell transplantation and assessed neurite outgrowth in a quantifiable model of axonal regeneration. Axonal injuries of differing severity were induced in the dorsal funiculus of adult rats using a micromanipulator-controlled Scouten knife. Demyelinated regions were produced so as to(More)
The accumulation of reactive oxygen species leading to oxidative damage and cell death plays an important role in a number of neurodegenerative disorders. FOXO3a, the main isoform of FOXO transcription factors, mediates the cellular response to oxidative stress by regulating the expression of genes involved in DNA repair and glutamine metabolism, including(More)
The insulin/IGF1 signalling (IIS) pathways are involved in longevity regulation and are dysregulated in neurons in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). We previously showed downregulation in IIS gene expression in astrocytes with AD-neuropathology progression, but IIS in astrocytes remains poorly understood. We therefore examined the IIS pathway in human astrocytes(More)
