In this study, anesthesia/surgery impaired cognition, demonstrated by an increase escape latency and reduction in the number of platform crossings in Morris water maze (MWM) trials, through activating microglia neuroinflammation and decreasing PSD-95 expression. However, pretreatment with MS-275 attenuated postoperative cognitive impairment severity. Furthermore, pretreatment with MS-275 decreased activated microglia levels and increased PSD95 protein expression in the hippocampus. Pretreatment with MS-275 reduced NF-κB-p65 protein expression and nuclear accumulation as well as the neuroinflammatory response (product...

Discussion Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare disorder. It is usually considered an autosomal recessive disorder but there is significant intra-familial variability. There are multiple genes (~20 currently) involved and it is believed that the phenotypic variability is due to “…differences in the total mutational load across different BBS associated genes….” It is a ciliopathy where mutation changes in proteins in the cilias causes problems in the cilia’s functioning particularly signaling. Cilia are important in signaling to maintain tissue and cellular homeostasis. Obviously screening o...

In our previous study, phenylethanoid glycosides were found to exist in Houpo, a traditional Chinese medicine commonly used for the treatment of abdominal distention, pain and dyspepsia. In the present study, the effect of magnoloside A (MA), a main phenylethanoid glycoside in Houpo, ...
