  • We previously reported that pretreatment of murine cortico-hippocampal neuronal cultures with the complement-derived anaphylatoxin C5a, protects against glutamate neurotoxicity. In this study we explored the potential mechanisms involved in C5a-mediated neuroprotection. We found that C5a neuroprotects in vitro through inhibition of apoptotic death because pretreatment with human recombinant (hr)C5a prevented nuclear DNA fragmentation coincidental to inhibition of the pro-apoptotic caspase 3… CONTINUE READING
