The brain is particularly vulnerable to ischaemia; however, neurons can become tolerant to ischaemic insult. This tolerance has been shown to involve activation of NMDA receptors, but its mechanisms have not yet been fully elucidated. Using a preconditioning protocol, we show that neurons surviving to a transient NMDA exposure become resistant to the(More)
CRMP1, CRMP2, and CRMP5 have been identified as cytosolic proteins relaying semaphorin 3A signalling, one of the molecular cues conducting axon and dendrite growth and guidance. They are highly expressed during brain ontogenesis, but, because of their lower levels in the adult, their distribution in the mature brain is poorly documented. By using specific(More)
Cerebral ischaemia is associated with brain damage and inhibition of neuronal protein synthesis. A deficit in neuronal metabolism and altered excitatory amino acid release may both contribute to those phenomena. In the present study, we demonstrate that both NMDA and metabolic impairment by 2-deoxyglucose or inhibitors of mitochondrial respiration inhibit(More)
