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.
tumours, the most common type was GBM WHO Grade IV.
For instance, BDNF and NGF inhibited the osmotic swelling of glial
(Muller cells) and bipolar cells induced by barium solution in the rat retina cells.
No doubt the insects gain an edge from their trusty glial
Many of the fibers appear to terminate at desmosomes in the glial
Loggia explains, 'While upregulation of TSPO is a marker of glial
activation, which is an inflammatory state, animal studies have suggested that the protein actually limits the magnitude of glial
response after its initiation and promotes the return to a pain-free, pre-injury status.
Oro pharyngeal glial
choristoma mainly contains neurons and astrocytes as well as complex central nervous system elements, such as ependymal line structures--choroid plexus.
We report a case of glial
choristoma of the middle ear, and we review the literature on the nature and management of this lesion in this location.
This study indicates that glia are not only essential to neural transmission, but also suggest that the development of human cognition may reflect the evolution of human-specific glial
form and function," said University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) neurologist Steven Goldman, M.
This system, which is similar to the lymphatic system, is overseen by glial
cells and is far larger and more comprehensive than other processes that remove waste from the brain, according to a study published online Aug.
Cell culture was maintained until the 6th passage and during this period samples were collected for imunocytochemistry characterization using markers for glial
fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) (Dako Cytomation, Denmark), S100Protein (Dako Cytomation, Glostrup, Denmark) and vimentin (Dako Cytomation, Glostrup, Denmark).
They lacked chromogranin A, glial
fibrillary acidic protein, vimentin, S-100, and cytokeratin antigen expression.
