Resilience of network activity in preconditioned neurons exposed to 'stroke-in-a-dish' insults.

Neurochem Int 2021 Mar 30:105035. Epub 2021 Mar 30.

Human Health Therapeutics Research Center, National Research Council of Canada, Ottawa, ON, Canada, K1A 0R6; Brain and Mind Research Institute, University of Ottawa, ON, Canada, K1N 6N5.

Exposing cultured cortical neurons to stimulatory agents - the K channel blocker 4-aminopyridine (4-ap), and the GABA receptor antagonist bicuculline (bic) - for 48 h induces down-regulated synaptic scaling, and preconditions neurons to withstand subsequent otherwise lethal 'stroke-in-a-dish' insults; however, the degree to which usual neuronal function remains is unknown. As a result, multi-electrode array and patch-clamp electrophysiological techniques were employed to characterize hallmarks of spontaneous synaptic activity during over a 12-day preconditioning/insult experiment. Spiking frequency increased 8-fold immediately upon 4-ap/bic treatment but declined within the 48 h treatment window to sub-baseline levels that persisted long after washout. Read More

Cadherins in early neural development.

Cell Mol Life Sci 2021 Apr 1. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Centre for Regenerative Medicine, Institute for Stem Cell Research, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh, Little France Drive, Edinburgh, EH16 4UU, UK.

During early neural development, changes in signalling inform the expression of transcription factors that in turn instruct changes in cell identity. At the same time, switches in adhesion molecule expression result in cellular rearrangements that define the morphology of the emerging neural tube. It is becoming increasingly clear that these two processes influence each other; adhesion molecules do not simply operate downstream of or in parallel with changes in cell identity but rather actively feed into cell fate decisions.

New Avenues for Treatment and Prevention of Drug-Induced Steatosis and Steatohepatitis: Much More Than Antioxidants.

Adv Ther 2021 Mar 24. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

Department of Clinical Medicine and Surgery, "Federico II" University Medical School of Naples, Naples, Italy.

Drug-induced lipid accumulation in the liver may induce two clinically relevant conditions, drug-induced steatosis (DIS) and drug-induced steatohepatitis (DISH). The list of drugs that may cause DIS or DISH is long and heterogeneous and includes therapeutically relevant molecules that cannot be easily replaced by less hepatotoxic medicines, therefore making specific strategies necessary for DIS/DISH prevention or treatment. For years, the only available tools to achieve these goals have been antioxidant drugs and free radical scavengers, which counteract drug-induced mitochondrial dysfunction but, unfortunately, have only limited efficacy.
