The cholinergic system in aging and neuronal degeneration
The basal forebrain cholinergic complex comprising medial septum, horizontal and vertical diagonal band of Broca, and nucleus basalis of Meynert provides the mayor cholinergic projections to theExpand

Aneuploidy and DNA Replication in the Normal Human Brain and Alzheimer's Disease
Reactivation of the cell cycle, including DNA replication, might play a major role in Alzheimer's disease (AD). A more than diploid DNA content in differentiated neurons might alternatively resultExpand

Reversible Paired Helical Filament-Like Phosphorylation of Tau Is an Adaptive Process Associated with Neuronal Plasticity in Hibernating Animals
Neurofibrillary pathology [paired helical filaments (PHFs)] formed by the microtubule-associated protein tau in a hyperphosphorylated form is a major hallmark of Alzheimer's disease and relatedExpand

Regional patterns of gene expression in human and chimpanzee brains.
We have analyzed gene expression in various brain regions of humans and chimpanzees. Within both human and chimpanzee individuals, the transcriptomes of the cerebral cortex are very similar to eachExpand

Aggrecan, link protein and tenascin-R are essential components of the perineuronal net to protect neurons against iron-induced oxidative stress
In Alzheimer’s disease (AD), different types of neurons and different brain areas show differential patterns of vulnerability towards neurofibrillary degeneration, which provides the basis for aExpand

Changes in acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase in Alzheimer's disease resemble embryonic development—A study of molecular forms
The pattern of molecular forms of acetylcholinesterase (AChE, EC and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE, EC separated by density gradient centrifugation was investigated in the brain andExpand

Impact of cellular senescence signature on ageing research
Cellular senescence as the state of permanent inhibition of cell proliferation is a tumour-suppressive mechanism. However, due to the associated secretory phenotype senescence can also contribute toExpand

Early neurone loss in Alzheimer’s disease: cortical or subcortical?
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a degenerative disorder where the distribution of pathology throughout the brain is not random but follows a predictive pattern used for pathological staging. While theExpand

Transgenic Activation of Ras in Neurons Promotes Hypertrophy and Protects from Lesion-Induced Degeneration
Ras is a universal eukaryotic intracellular protein integrating extracellular signals from multiple receptor types. To investigate its role in the adult central nervous system, constitutivelyExpand
