The findings indicate that epilepsy may occur not only due to anomalies in neurons, but also in glial cells. 'Our results provide a direct evidence that the interactions between glial cells and neurons change during the transition from a pre-seizure state to a generalized seizure.
In 2015, it was reported that in cultured Bergmann glial cells, BMAL1 expression is Glu time- and dose-dependent.
Through their work, Barres and his team made discoveries concerning the role of certain glial cells and also found out the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the kind of brain tissue degeneration seen in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases, and multiple sclerosis and glaucoma.
3) confirmed in all three ganglia the presence of the three cell types seen at light microscopy: glial cells, neurons, and pigmented cells.
The GL is composed of many olfactory glomeruli, which are round, consisting of a layer of small neurons and glial cells. Under light microscopy, normal microglia (Mig) appeared long or triangular, the chromatin was evenly distributed, the nucleus had a coloring deep, and there were a few thick and short protrusions.
explored the protective mechanisms of securinine, a major natural alkaloid product from the root of the plant Securinega suffruticosa, in glial cells. The authors demonstrated that this natural product inhibits glial activation and subsequent generation of proinflammatory factors.
Singh, "The involvement of glucose metabolism in the regulation of inducible nitric oxide synthase gene expression in glial cells: possible role of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and CCAAT/ enhancing binding protein," The Journal of Neuroscience, vol.
The most common type of glial cell in the eye of mammals is the Muller glial (MG) cell.
This led him to identify and name two more types of glial cells, including microglia, which are far smaller than the others and are characterized by their spidery shape and multiple branches.
The tumors can be found in the glial cells or the neuron.
Glial cells (the helpers) have seemed less interesting.
Q Therapeutics selected ALS as the first clinical indication for Q-Cells based on a combination of the large unmet medical need and the significant scientific rationale supporting the multiple pathways by which healthy glial cells are believed to protect and preserve the function of motor neurons.
