Diffusible, nonfibrillar ligands derived from Abeta1-42 are potent central nervous system neurotoxins.
Abeta1-42 is a self-associating peptide whose neurotoxic derivatives are thought to play a role in Alzheimer's pathogenesis. Neurotoxicity of amyloid beta protein (Abeta) has been attributed to itsExpand

Expression of a noncoding RNA is elevated in Alzheimer's disease and drives rapid feed-forward regulation of β-secretase
Recent efforts have revealed that numerous protein-coding messenger RNAs have natural antisense transcript partners, most of which seem to be noncoding RNAs. Here we identify a conserved noncodingExpand

Absence of Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein and Vimentin Prevents Hypertrophy of Astrocytic Processes and Improves Post-Traumatic Regeneration
The regenerative capacity of the CNS is extremely limited. The reason for this is unclear, but glial cell involvement has been suspected, and oligodendrocytes have been implicated as inhibitors ofExpand

Joint Genome-Wide Profiling of miRNA and mRNA Expression in Alzheimer's Disease Cortex Reveals Altered miRNA Regulation
Although microRNAs are being extensively studied for their involvement in cancer and development, little is known about their roles in Alzheimer's disease (AD). In this study, we used microarrays forExpand

A Periodic Diet that Mimics Fasting Promotes Multi-System Regeneration, Enhanced Cognitive Performance, and Healthspan.
Prolonged fasting (PF) promotes stress resistance, but its effects on longevity are poorly understood. We show that alternating PF and nutrient-rich medium extended yeast lifespan independently ofExpand

Chronic Overexpression of the Calcineurin Inhibitory Gene DSCR1 (Adapt78) Is Associated with Alzheimer's Disease*
The DSCR1(Adapt78) gene was independently discovered as a resident of the “Down syndrome candidate region”and as an “adaptive response”shock or stress gene that is transiently induced duringExpand

Vaccination with soluble Aβ oligomers generates toxicity‐neutralizing antibodies
In recent studies of transgenic models of Alzheimer's disease (AD), it has been reported that antibodies to aged beta amyloid peptide 1–42 (Aβ1−42) solutions (mixtures of Aβ monomers, oligomers andExpand

Peroxynitrite Mediates Neurotoxicity of Amyloid β-Peptide1–42- and Lipopolysaccharide-Activated Microglia
The amyloid β-peptide (Aβ) activates microglia and promotes the generation of cytokines and oxygen species, including nitric oxide (NO) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α), which can be eitherExpand

Increased Synaptic Sprouting in Response to Estrogen via an Apolipoprotein E-Dependent Mechanism: Implications for Alzheimer’s Disease
Estrogen replacement therapy appears to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), but the mechanisms for this action are incompletely known. We show how the enhancement of synaptic sprouting byExpand

A Diet Mimicking Fasting Promotes Regeneration and Reduces Autoimmunity and Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms.
Dietary interventions have not been effective in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). Here, we show that periodic 3-day cycles of a fasting mimicking diet (FMD) are effective in amelioratingExpand
