Introduction: Parkinson's disease is a degenerative neurological disorder associated with progressive loss of dopamine-secreting neurons in the direction of the Substantia nigra and the basal ganglia. In the past, drug treatment was the only known solution for the disease. But now it has been tries to use modern medical methods and herbal extracts to reduce the effects of chemical drugs. Given the above, the main aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of beta-boswellic acid (BBA… Expand

Cell replacement therapy for Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
The rapidly advancing stem cell field is providing attractive alternative options which circumvent many of the ethical and practical problems inherent in trials with FVM tissue, and embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells seem the most promising. Expand
The role of Nurr1 in the development of dopaminergic neurons and Parkinson's disease
TLDR
Experimental studies suggest that Nurr1 is not only essential in the development of mensencephalic dopaminergic neurons and maintenance of their functions, but it may also play a role in the pathogenesis of PD. Expand
The role of connexins in the differentiation of NT2 cells in Sertoli-NT2 cell tissue constructs grown in the rotating wall bioreactor
TLDR
It is reported here that the gap junction protein connexin 43 is decreased among differentiated NT2N neurons and is important in the differentiation of NT2 cells in the SNAC tissue construct. Expand
The enhancement effect of beta-boswellic acid on hippocampal neurites outgrowth and branching (an in vitro study)
TLDR
The obtained results suggest that enhancing effect of BBA on microtubule polymerization kinetics might be the origin of increasing axonal outgrowth and branching in neurodegenerative disorders. Expand
Parkinson's Disease Mechanisms and Models
TLDR
PD models based on the manipulation of PD genes should prove valuable in elucidating important aspects of the disease, such as selective vulnerability of substantia nigra dopaminergic neurons to the degenerative process. Expand
Dopamine neurons derived from embryonic stem cells function in an animal model of Parkinson's disease
TLDR
It is shown that a highly enriched population of midbrain neural stem cells can be derived from mouse ES cells and the dopamine neurons generated by these stem cells show electrophysiological and behavioural properties expected of neurons from the midbrain. Expand
Cooperative transcription activation by Nurr1 and Pitx3 induces embryonic stem cell maturation to the midbrain dopamine neuron phenotype.
TLDR
It is shown that Nurr1 and Pitx3 cooperatively promote terminal maturation to the midbrain DA neuron phenotype in murine and human ES cell cultures. Expand
Matrigel supports survival and neuronal differentiation of grafted embryonic stem cell‐derived neural precursor cells
TLDR
Cell replacement therapy holds great promise as a means of treating neurological disorders, including Parkinson's disease, but because it is derived from mouse sarcomas, a human‐derived matrix or synthetic biomaterial must be developed for clinical applications. Expand
Glutathione, oxidative stress and neurodegeneration.
TLDR
The evidence for a disturbance of glutathione homeostasis that may either lead to or result from oxidative stress in neurodegenerative disorders is reviewed. Expand
Efficient generation of midbrain and hindbrain neurons from mouse embryonic stem cells
TLDR
A method for obtaining dopaminergic (DA) and serotonergic neurons in high yield from mouse ES cells in vitro is presented and it is demonstrated that the ES cells can be obtained in unlimited numbers and that these neuron types are generated efficiently. Expand
