Tri-ortho-cresyl phosphate (TOCP) could induce degeneration of long, large diameter axons within the central and peripheral nervous system of susceptible species including human being and hens, which is referred to as organophosphorus-ester induced delayed neuropathy (OPIDN). The mechanisms involved are not understood. Neuropathologic observations suggested(More)
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are stable, lipophilic compounds that accumulate in the environment and in the food chain. Though some studies provided evidence that PCBs had adverse effects on reproductive function, most of these results were from in vitro models. Therefore we investigated the effect of Aroclor 1254 (a commercial PCBs mixture) treatments(More)
The mechanisms involved in the persistence of activated CD4+ T lymphocytes following primary human T leukemia/lymphoma virus type 1 (HTLV-1) infection remain unclear. Here, we demonstrate that the HTLV-1 Tax oncoprotein modulates phosphorylation and transcriptional activity of the FOXO3a transcription factor, via upstream activation of the AKT pathway. De(More)
Chronic acrylamide (ACR) exposure induces peripheral-central axonopathy in occupational workers and laboratory animals, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. In this study, we first investigated the effects of ACR on slow axonal transport of neurofilaments in cultured rat dorsal root ganglia (DRG) neurons through live-cell imaging approach. Then for(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effects of 1-bromopropane (1-BP) on the functions of learning-memory and the central cholinergic system in rats. METHODS Forty male Wistar rats were randomly divided into four groups: low 1-BP group (200 mg/kg), middle 1-BP group (400 mg/kg), high 1-BP group (800 mg/kg) and control group, and the exposure time was 7 days. The Morris(More)
Exposure chronically to n-hexane produces peripheral-central axonopathy mediated by 2,5-hexanedione (HD). Previous studies have demonstrated decreases in neurofilament (NF) contents of peripheral and central nervous regions from rats intoxicated with HD, and recent analysis has demonstrated that axonal atrophy, instead of NF-filled swellings, is a specific(More)
Exposure chronically to n-hexane produces central-peripheral axonopathy mediated by 2,5-hexanedione (HD). Studies have shown neurofilament (NF) subunit proteins are decreased substantially in cerebral cortices, optic axons, spinal cords, and sciatic nerves from HD-exposed rats. To deeply investigate the alterations in NF contents in HD neuropathy, the(More)
