(18) reported that the IncRNA uc.217 modulates neurite outgrowth of DRG neurons after sciatic nerve injury.
The researchers have now closed this gap with the aid of so-called neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging.
Some psychedelics tested, including LSD, proved to be more potent and efficacious than ketamine in promoting neurite growth.
They assess, for instance, the proliferation and differentiation of neuronal precursor cells (Baumann et al., 2016; Culbreth et al., 2012; Fritsche et al., 2005; Hogberg et al., 2010, 2009; Schmuck et al., 2017; Shinde et al., 2017; Balmer et al., 2012), the loss of certain neuronal (sub)populations (Baumann et al., 2016; Culbreth et al., 2012; Pamies et al., 2016; Schmuck et al., 2017; Zimmer et al., 2011b,a), or the impairment of migration (Nyffeler et al., 2017b; Schmuck et al., 2017; Zimmer et al., 2012), neurite outgrowth (Harrill et al., 2011; Krug et al., 2013) or neuronal network formation (Brown et al., 2017; Pamies et al., 2016; Schmuck et al., 2017).
Reduction of neurite outgrowth in a model of glial scarring following CNS injury is correlated with the expression of inhibitory molecules on reactive astrocytes.
Neurite outgrowth and expression of progenitor and differentiation markers were analysed using the semiautomated software MetaMorph (Molecular Devices, USA).
Components of the classical complement pathway have been associated with senile plaques [79,80], fibrillar A[beta], NFT, and dystrophic neurites [11, 63, 64, 81-85].
Researchers are finding that curcumin can reduce anxiety/depression, promote neurite growth and induce brain plasticity.
The special staining techniques and the electron microscopy observations did not evidence the presence of myelin-like material around neurites. Odiete (1978) illustrated in this species a sort of concentrically lamellar figures that were deemed as myelinated axons (but this was only in small-sized ones), stating, however, that most axons entering the medulla were typical unmyelinated.
TDP-43 pathology (neuronal inclusions and dystrophic neurites) was observed within the amygdala but not in the hippocampi or elsewhere.
Neurites projecting from these cortical cells contribute to glomerular structures that are embedded within the lateral lobes (Spagnolia and Wilkens, 1983).
Interestingly, one of these antibodies also detect immunoreactive Egr3 in growing neurites of PC12 cells (data not shown).
