A growing body of evidence suggests that nobiletin (5,6,7,8,3',4'-hexamethoxy flavone) from the peel of citrus fruits, enhances the damaged cognitive function in disease animal models. However, the neuroprotective mechanism has not been clearly elucidated. Since nobiletin has shown anti-inflammatory effects in several tissues, we investigated whether(More)
OBJECTIVES Aromatherapy massage is commonly used for the stress management of healthy individuals, and also has been often employed as a therapeutic use for pain control and alleviating psychological distress, such as anxiety and depression, in oncological palliative care patients. However, the exact biological basis of aromatherapy massage is poorly(More)
Mitochondrial membrane potential (∆Ψm ) contributes to determining a driving force for calcium to enter the mitochondria. It has been demonstrated that even a small mitochondrial depolarization is sufficient to prevent mitochondrial calcium overload and the subsequent apoptosis. Therefore, mild mitochondrial depolarization has been recently evaluated as a(More)
Excessive microglial activation-mediated neurotoxicity has been implicated in playing a crucial role in the pathogenesis of stroke and neurodegenerative diseases. Therefore, much attention has been paid to therapeutic strategies aimed at suppressing neurotoxic microglial activation. The microglial regulatory mechanism of methyl lucidone, a cyclopentenedione(More)
Excessive microglial activation and subsequent neuroinflammation lead to synaptic loss and dysfunction as well as neuronal cell death, which are involved in the pathogenesis and progression of several neurodegenerative diseases. Thus, the regulation of microglial activation has been evaluated as effective therapeutic strategies. Although dieckol (DEK), one(More)
