With (2R)-hydroxy-norneomajucin and analogs in hand, we then plan to perform a NGF-mediated neurite outgrowth PC-12 cellular assay on the natural product and advanced intermediates at the host institution (Gademann Lab, University of Basel, Switzerland).
24) A lab study revealed that taurine restores normal neurite growth in nerves exposed to toxic chemicals, largely through its protective effects against chemical stresses.
Together, these data suggest perturbed neuronal processes, either as a disruption of normal neurite outgrowth or possibly as a repair response to the DE-71-induced neurotoxic effects, in agreement with the study of Viberg and Eriksson (2011) in which changes in proteins involved in maturation of brain, neuronal growth, and synaptogenesis were associated with changes in learning and memory resulting from PBDE exposure.

Now, a new study from the Sbarro Health Research Organization (SHRO, Center for Biotechnology, Temple University, Philadelphia PA USA), Lombardi Cancer Center , Georgetown University and the University of L'Aquila (Italy)) has revealed that cocoa polyphenols triggers neuroprotection by activating BDNF survival pathway, both on Abeta plaque treated cells and on Abeta oligomers treated cells, resulting in the counteraction of neurite dystrophy.
