The role of VE-cadherin in blood-brain barrier integrity under central nervous system pathological conditions.

The role of VE-cadherin in blood-brain barrier integrity under central nervous system pathological conditions. Curr Neuropharmacol. 2018 Feb 22;: Authors: Li W, Chen Z, Chin I, Chen Z, Dai H Abstract The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a layer between the blood circulation and neural tissue. It plays a pivotal role in maintaining the vulnerable extracellular microenvironment in the neuronal parenchyma. Neuroinflammatory events can result in BBB dysregulation by disturbing adherens junctions (AJs) and tight junctions (TJs). VE-cadherin, as one of the most important components of the vascular system, is specifically responsible for the assembly of AJs and BBB architecture. Here, we present a review, which highlights recently available insights into the relationship between the neuroinflammation and BBB dysregulation. We then explore the specific interaction between VE-cadherin and BBB. Finally, we discuss the changes of VE-cadherin with different neurological diseases from both experimental and clinical studies. An understanding of VE-cadherin in BBB regulation may indicate that VE-cadherin can partially be a biomarker of neuroinflammation disease and lead to novel approaches for abating BBB dysregulation under pathological conditions and the opening of the BBB following central nervous system (CNS) drug delivery.

ConclusionIn conclusion, hypothalamic Pomc as well as Mc4r, both of which are reduced in type 1 diabetic mice, are required for normal counterregulatory responses to hypoglycemia. Therefore, enhancing MC4R function may improve hypoglycemia counterregulation in diabetes.Graphical abstract

The effects of estrogens on the phosphorylation status of the RyR1 in s...

Authors: Bagheri MJ, Talebpour M, Sharifi A, Talebpour A, Mohseni AA Abstract INTRODUCTION: Bariatric surgeries are known to have profound effects on lipid profile. Laparoscopic gastric plication (LGP) has been shown to have a comparable effect on weight loss rather than Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and mini gastric bypass (MGB). But the post-operative effect on lipid profile is not well-compared. We aimed to compare post-operative lipid profile change after LGP and MGB. METHODS: In a retrospective analysis, we reviewed 91 patients for at least 12 months. Patients were assigned to undergo either LGP (71...
