Expression of the chemokine receptor CXCR3 on neurons and the elevated expression of its ligand IP-10 in reactive astrocytes: in vitro ERK1/2 activation and role in Alzheimer's disease.

Abstract

Inflammatory mediators have been implicated in the pathophysiology of neurodegenerative diseases. Here we report the presence of the chemokine receptor CXCR3 and its ligand, IP-10, in normal and Alzheimer's disease (AD) brains. CXCR3 was detected constitutively on neurons and neuronal processes in various cortical and subcortical regions; IP-10 was observed… (More)
