Propranolol inhibits myocardial infarction-induced brown adipose tissue D2 activation and maintains a low thyroid hormone state in rats.
es EL Abstract Considering the recognized role of thyroid hormones on the cardiovascular system during health and disease, we hypothesized that type 2 deiodinase (D2) activity, the main activation pathway of thyroxine (T4)-to-triiodothyronine (T3), could be an important site to modulate thyroid hormone status, which would then constitute a possible target for β-adrenergic blocking agents in a myocardial infarction (MI) model induced by left coronary occlusion in rats. Despite a sustained and dramatic fall in serum T4 concentrations (60-70%), the serum T3 concentration fell only transiently in the first week p...

Modeling cortical spreading depression induced by the hyperactivity of interneurons
AbstractCortical spreading depression (CSD) is a wave of transient intense neuronal firing leading to a long lasting depolarizing block of neuronal activity. It is a proposed pathological mechanism of migraine with aura. Some forms of migraine are associated with a genetic mutation of the Nav1.1 channel, resulting in its gain of function and implying hyperexcitability of interneurons. This leads to the counterintuitive hypothesis that intense firing of interneurons can cause CSD ignition. To test this hypothesis in silico, we developed a computational model of an E-I pair (a pyramidal cell and an interneuron), in which the...

Crosstalk between S. cerevisiae SAPKs Hog1 and Mpk1 is mediated by glycerol accumulation
In this study, we show that hyperactivation of Mpk1 in a ptp2 ptp3 null mutant is an indirect consequence of Hog1 hyperactivation, which induces accumulation of intracellular glycerol and an attendant hypo-osmotic stress. Mpk1 hyperactivity in the absence of PTP2 and PTP3 was suppressed by a hog1 null mutation, or by restoration of osmotic balance with a constitutive form of the glycerol channel Fps1. We found similarly that activation of Mpk1 in response to zymolyase treatment is partly a consequence of Hog1-driven glycerol accumulation. Thus, we have identified two conditions in which glycerol serves as a mediator of cro...

Polygenic Risk Scores for Psychiatric Disorders Reveal Novel Clues About the Genetics of Disordered Gambling.
Abstract Disordered gambling (DG) is a rare but serious condition that results in considerable financial and interpersonal harms. Twin studies indicate that DG is heritable but are silent with respect to specific genes or pathways involved. Existing genomewide association studies (GWAS) of DG have been substantially underpowered. Larger GWAS of other psychiatric disorders now permit calculation of polygenic risk scores (PRSs) that reflect the aggregated effects of common genetic variants contributing risk for the target condition. The current study investigated whether gambling and DG are associated with PRSs for fo...

Exposure to valproic acid during middle to late-stage corticogenesis induces learning and social behavioral abnormalities with attention deficit/hyperactivity in adult mice.
Abstract Single prenatal exposure to valproic acid (VPA) in rodents is a widely used preclinical model of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Continuous prenatal VPA exposure has been recently proposed as a new ASD model that closely captures the neuropathological features of ASD, including increases in cerebral cortex volume and the number of cortical upper layer neurons. We investigated the influence of prenatal VPA exposure on the behavior of adult offspring of pregnant dams that received intraperitoneal injections of VPA twice on one day during the genesis of cortical upper layer neurons. Mice exposed to VPA at E1...

Conclusions: Studies on the prevalence rates of EDs in ADHD and ASD and vice versa are heterogeneous, but they indicate frequent association. While there is growing evidence of clinical overlaps between the three disorders, it remains difficult to determine whether overlapping characteristics (e.g., social withdrawal) are due to common comorbidities (e.g., depression) or are instead primarily associated with EDs and neurodevelopmental disorders. Furthermore, prospective studies are required to better understand how these disorders are related and whether ADHD and ASD could be either specific or nonspecific predisposing fac...

Glycogen synthase kinase 3 β hyperactivity in urinary exfoliated cells predicts progression of diabetic kidney disease.
Burgeoning evidence points to glycogen synthase kinase (GSK)3 β as a key player in diverse kidney diseases. However, as a pivotal transducer of the insulin signaling pathway, the role of GSK3β in diabetic kidney disease remains uncertain. In db/db mice, renal expression of total and activated GSK3β was increasingly elevated. This preceded the development of diabetic kidney disease, and correlated with the progression of signs of diabetic kidney injury, including albuminuria and extracellular matrix accumulation in glomeruli and tubulointerstitia.

We hypothesized that glutamate hyperactivity reflected by increased metabolic activity derived from fMRI in the CA1 hippocampal subregion, and 1HMRS-derived hippocampal levels of GLX (glutamate/glutamine) represents early hippocampal dysfunction in CHR, and is predictive of conversion to syndromal psychosis.

Individualized Neurofeedback Training May Help Achieve Long-Term Improvement of Working Memory in Children With ADHD.
Abstract Background. Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may suffer from working memory deficits, which can adversely affect their academic performance. Neurofeedback training may enhance working memory and provide a solution to this problem. Aim. To investigate the effect of frequency-neurofeedback on working memory in children with ADHD and to check if the effect is long-lasting. Method. Forty-eight children with ADHD (aged 6-12 years) were randomly assigned either to a neurofeedback with training parameters chosen to take into account each child's peak alpha frequency (PAF) or to a wai...

NS-Pten adult knockout mice display both quantitative and qualitative changes in urine-induced ultrasonic vocalizations.
Abstract The NS-Pten knockout (KO) mouse exhibits hyperactivity of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and is a model of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ASD presents with marked deficits in communication which can be elucidated by investigating their counterpart in mice, ultrasonic vocalizations (USVs). While USVs have been found to be altered in NS-Pten KO pups, no study has assessed whether this communication deficit persists into adulthood. In the present study, we investigate female urine-induced USVs, scent marking behavior, and open field activity in NS-Pten KO and wildtype (WT) adult male mice. Results...
