Guanosine controls inflammatory pathways to afford neuroprotection of hippocampal slices under oxygen and glucose deprivation conditions
Guanosine (GUO) is an endogenous modulator of glutamatergic excitotoxicity and has been shown to promote neuroprotection in in vivo and in vitro models of neurotoxicity. This study was designed toExpand

Seasonal cycles of isoprene concentrations in the Amazonian rainforest
Tropical forests are an important global source of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other atmospheric trace gases. The high biodiversity in tropical rainforests complicates the extrapolation ofExpand

Guanosine is neuroprotective against oxygen/glucose deprivation in hippocampal slices via large conductance Ca2+-activated K+ channels, phosphatidilinositol-3 kinase/protein kinase B pathway
Guanine derivatives (GD) have been implicated in many relevant brain extracellular roles, such as modulation of glutamate transmission and neuronal protection against excitotoxic damage. GD areExpand

Atorvastatin Prevents Hippocampal Cell Death due to Quinolinic Acid-Induced Seizures in Mice by Increasing Akt Phosphorylation and Glutamate Uptake
Statins are cholesterol-lowering agents due to the inhibition of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase. Recent studies have shown statins possess pleiotropic effects, which appearExpand

NMDA preconditioning protects against quinolinic acid-induced seizures via PKA, PI3K and MAPK/ERK signaling pathways
Preconditioning by N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) may be promoted in vivo by the administration of a sub-convulsing dose of NMDA, with a neuroprotective effect against seizures and neuronal deathExpand

Battling Alzheimer’s Disease: Targeting SUMOylation-Mediated Pathways
SUMO (small ubiquitin-like modifier) conjugation is a critically important control process in all eukaryotic cells, because it acts as a biochemical switch and regulates the function of hundreds ofExpand

Atorvastatin prevents cell damage via modulation of oxidative stress, glutamate uptake and glutamine synthetase activity in hippocampal slices subjected to oxygen/glucose deprivation
Oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD) in brain cells increases extracellular glutamate concentration leading to excitotoxicity. Glutamate uptake from the synaptic cleft is carried out by glutamateExpand

Influence of environmental enrichment vs. time-of-day on behavioral repertoire of male albino Swiss mice
Environmental enrichment (EE) is a non-pharmacological manipulation that promotes diverse forms of benefits in the central nervous system of captive animals. It is thought that EE influences animalExpand

Atorvastatin Protects from Aβ1–40-Induced Cell Damage and Depressive-Like Behavior via ProBDNF Cleavage
Intracerebroventricular (icv) amyloid-beta (Aβ)1–40 infusion to mice has been demonstrated to cause neurotoxicty and depressive-like behavior and it can be used to evaluate antidepressant andExpand

Mechanism of guanosine-induced neuroprotection in rat hippocampal slices submitted to oxygen–glucose deprivation
Guanine derivates have been implicated in many relevant extracellular roles, such as modulation of glutamate transmission, protecting neurons against excitotoxic damage. Guanine derivatives areExpand
