Lindsley, Danny G. Winder, P. Jeffrey ConnSummaryNon-selective antagonists of metabotropic glutamate receptor subtypes 2 (mGlu2) and 3 (mGlu3) exert rapid antidepressant-like effects by enhancing prefrontal cortex (PFC) glutamate transmission; however, the receptor subtype contributions and underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Here, we leveraged newly developed negative allosteric modulators (NAMs), transgenic mice, and viral-assisted...
AbstractThe development of Alzheimer's disease (AD) has been strongly linked to the apolipoprotein E (APOE) polymorphism. A number studies have reported that theAPOEε4 allele is a genetic risk factor for developing AD, whereas theAPOEε2 andAPOEε3 alleles are considered to be neutral or even protective; however, there are conflicting data about these relationships in certain ethnic populations. Several meta-analyses have been performed to reduce the heterogeneity of results from different studies and estimate the real association in speci fic ethnicities. The aim of this study was to investigate the ...
Authors: Ariceta G, Buj MJ, Furlano M, Martínez V, Matamala A, Morales M, Robles NR, Sans L, Villacampa F, Torra R Abstract Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a rare, hereditary, multisystemic disease with a broad phenotypic spectrum. Its management requires the collaboration of multiple specialists. Just as in the paediatric age, the paediatric neurologist takes on special importance; in adulthood, renal involvement is the cause of the greatest morbidity and mortality. There are several recommendations on the general management of patients with TSC but none that focuses on renal involvement. These recommen...

This article provides an evidence-based personal perspective on the future of cell and gene therapy for degenerative diseases of the intervertebral disc. This paper focuses on how mammalian protein production platforms and transfected and irradiated protein packaging cell lines may be used as “cellular factories” for overproduction of therapeutic proteins and proanabolic growth factors, particularly in the context of regenerative therapies. This paper also speculates on future opportunities and challenges in this area of research and how new innovations in biotechnology affect cell a nd gene therapy for degenerative diseases.
