We have previously shown that the co-localization of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) with neurofilament (NF) aggregates in motor neurons derived from transgenic mice over-expressing the human low molecular weight NF protein (hNFL+/+) is associated with a deregulation of calcium influx via the N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, resulting in(More)
Studies of experimental motor neuron degeneration attributable to expression of neurofilament light chain (NF-L) transgenes have raised the possibility that the neuropathic effects result from overexpression of NF-L mRNA, independent of NF-L protein effects (Cañete-Soler et al., 1999). The present study was undertaken to test for an RNA-mediated(More)
We have previously reported that supernatant derived from LPS-activated BV-2 cells, an immortalized microglial cell line, induces death of NSC-34 cells (a motor neuron hybridoma) through a TNFalpha and nitric oxide synthase (NOS) dependant mechanism. In this study, we have observed that LPS-activated BV-2 supernatant induces NSC-34 cell death in association(More)
