Cerebral ischemia-reperfusion-induced autophagy protects against neuronal injury by mitochondrial clearance
Cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I-R) is a complex pathological process. Although autophagy can be evoked by ischemia, its involvement in the reperfusion phase after ischemia and its contribution toExpand

Microglial migration mediated by ATP-induced ATP release from lysosomes
Microglia are highly motile cells that act as the main form of active immune defense in the central nervous system. Attracted by factors released from damaged cells, microglia are recruited towardsExpand

Endoplasmic reticulum stress induced by tunicamycin and thapsigargin protects against transient ischemic brain injury
Transient cerebral ischemia leads to endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. However, the contributions of ER stress to cerebral ischemia are not clear. To address this issue, the ER stress activatorsExpand

Postnatal activation of TLR4 in astrocytes promotes excitatory synaptogenesis in hippocampal neurons
Shen et al. demonstrate a developmental role of astrocytes in shaping a predisposition to seizure generation. Activation of TLR4–MyD88–ERK1/2 signaling pathway in astrocytes during a criticalExpand

Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor promotes survival and induces differentiation through the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase and mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway respectively in PC12
PC12-GFRalpha1 cells, a clonal cell line engineered to express glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor receptor alpha1 were constructed. Given glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor couldExpand

Therapeutic potential of an anti-high mobility group box-1 monoclonal antibody in epilepsy
Brain inflammation is a major factor in epilepsy, and the high mobility group box-1 (HMGB1) protein is known to contribute significantly to the generation of seizures. Here, we investigated theExpand
