Salivary and serum chromogranin A and α-amylase in periodontal health and disease.
BACKGROUND Salivary stress-related biomarkers in connection with periodontal disease have not been extensively studied. In addition to cortisol as a well-known marker of stress loading, chromograninExpand

Neurotoxic effects on the dopaminergic system induced by TaClo (1-trichloromethyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-β-carboline), a potential mammalian alkaloid : in vivo and in vitro studies
Due to their structural analogy to the dopaminergic neurotoxin MPTP (N-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine), β-carbolines are discussed as potential natural inducers of Parkinson's diseaseExpand

Dopaminergic neurons are preferentially sensitive to long-term rotenone toxicity in primary cell culture.
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the death of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNpc) and the subsequent decrease ofExpand

Novel approach of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 detection in noninvasive and invasive transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder.
PURPOSE In recent years over expression of HER2 has been identified in malignant tumors of organs other than breast. Studies of bladder carcinoma that analyzed HER2 protein expression and geneExpand

Pathobiochemistry of the extrapyramidal system: a “short note” review
Evidence is presented to show that in Parkinson’s disease (PD) there exists a topographical degeneration in the nigrostriatal dopamine system. This finding may account for response variabilities andExpand

Deleterious Effects of Highly Halogenated ß -Carbolines on Dopaminergic Cells in Culture and on Mitochondrial Respiration
Several psychotropically active s-carbolines (e.g. harmane, norharman, harmin, and especially their N-methylated derivatives) have been described to exert neurotoxic effects to dopaminergic cellsExpand

Organotypic Striatal Slices: Neuroprotective Effects of Vitamins
The neurotoxin l-methyl-4-phenyl-l,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) destroys dopaminergic cells in humans, in vivo animal models and primary dopaminergic cultures. Following a neurotoxic hypothesis ofExpand
