Oxidative stress has long been linked to the neuronal cell death that is associated with certain neurodegenerative conditions. Whether it is a primary cause or merely a downstream consequence of the neurodegenerative process is still an open question, however. The advent of a growing number of in vitro and in vivo models that emulate human disease pathology is aiding scientists in deciphering just where oxidative stress intersects with other cellular events in the emerging roadmap leading to… Expand
Systemic Oxidative Stress: A Key Point in Neurodegeneration — A Review
TLDR
The effects and mechanisms of SOS derived neurodegeneration, as well as the neuroinflammation repercussions for some cerebral structures are discussed, which could reduce the ND incidence. Expand
Systemic Oxidative Stress: A key Point in Neurodegeneration - A Review.
TLDR
The effects and mechanisms of SOS derived neurodegeneration, as well as the neuroinflammation repercussions for some cerebral structures are discussed, which could reduce the ND incidence. Expand
Oxidative stress and neurotoxicity.
TLDR
The role of oxidative Stress in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Huntington's diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and multiple sclerosis, neurodegenerative and neuroinflammatory disorders where there is evidence for a primary contribution of oxidative stress in neuronal death is highlighted. Expand
Can crosstalk between DOR and PARP reduce oxidative stress mediated neurodegeneration?
TLDR
It would be an interesting topic of investigation to see if one of the probable mechanisms by which DOR attenuates OS could be by modulation of PARP through a cascade of intracellular signaling reactions. Expand

TLDR
Biological factors which may influence neuronal susceptibility to oxidative stress, in normal and neurodegenerative contexts, are reviewed, with a focus on properties intrinsic to the neuronal cell type and on properties related to neuronal reliance on surrounding astrocytes. Expand
Alzheimer Disease: Oxidative Stress and Compensatory Responses
TLDR
It has been suggested that in the first stage of the development of Alzheimer disease, amyloid-β deposition and hyperphosphorylated tau function as compensatory responses to ensure that neuronal cells do not succumb to oxidative damage. Expand
Transducing oxidative stress to death signals in neurons
TLDR
This issue delineate how oxidative stress is transduced into death signals, leading to neuronal apoptosis and axonal degeneration, and how elevated ROS levels cause neurodegeneration. Expand
Oxr1 Is Essential for Protection against Oxidative Stress-Induced Neurodegeneration
TLDR
The role of oxidation resistance 1 (Oxr1) is identified as a vital protein that controls the sensitivity of neuronal cells to oxidative stress; mice lacking Oxr1 display cerebellar neurodegeneration, and neurons are less susceptible to exogenous stress when the gene is over-expressed. Expand
The role of oxidative stress in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Animal models of PD have yielded some insights into the molecular pathways of neuronal degeneration and highlighted previously unknown mechanisms by which oxidative stress contributes to PD, but therapeutic attempts to target the general state of oxidative stress in clinical trials have failed to demonstrate an impact on disease progression.

α-Synuclein Promotes Mitochondrial Deficit and Oxidative Stress
TLDR
Results suggest that abnormal accumulation of α-synuclein could lead to mitochondrial alterations that may result in oxidative stress and, eventually, cell death. Expand
Protein Nitration in Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
It is demonstrated here the presence of nitrotyrosine immunoreactivity in Lewy bodies within melanized neurons and in amorphous deposits associated with intact and degenerating neurons, demonstrating that oxidative stress has occurred within the vulnerable neurons of PD. Expand
Widespread Peroxynitrite-Mediated Damage in Alzheimer’s Disease
TLDR
There is strong evidence that peroxynitrite is involved in oxidative damage of Alzheimer’s disease, and the widespread occurrence of nitrotyrosine in neurons suggests that oxidative damage is not restricted to long-lived polymers such as NFTs, but instead reflects a generalized oxidative stress that is important in disease pathogenesis.

The selective and specific nitration of alpha-synuclein in these disorders provides evidence to directly link oxidative and nitrative damage to the onset and progression of neurodegenerative synucleinopathies. Expand
