  1. 1. On dopamine neurons : nerve fiber outgrowth and L-DOPA effects

    Author : Sara af Bjerkén; Ingrid Strömberg; Kathy Steece-Collier; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dopamine; nerve fiber outgrowth; astrocytes; ventral mesencephalon; GDNF; L-DOPA; L-DOPA induced dyskinesia; Neurobiology; Neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease is a disorder mainly characterized by progressive degeneration of dopamine producing neurons in the substantia nigra of the midbrain. The most commonly used treatment strategy is to pharmacologically restore the lost function by the administration of the dopaminergic precursor L-DOPA. READ MORE

  2. 2. Functional and Transcriptional Studies of Human Dopaminergic Neurons

    Author : Marcella Birtele; Utvecklings- och regenerativ neurobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dopaminergic Neurons; Cell reprogramming; Cell therapy; Induced neurons; In vitro reprogramming; In vivo reprogramming;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is the most common movement disorder and second most common neurodegenerative disease. The principal hallmark of the pathology is represented by a loss of mesencephalic Dopaminergic neurons (mesDA) that reside in the Substantia Nigra pars compacta (SNpc). READ MORE

  3. 3. Generation of Dopaminergic Neurons from Human Embryonic Stem Cells

    Author : Tandis Vazin; Joakim Lundeberg; Ernest Arenas; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human; dopaminergic; embryonic stem cells; differentiation; stromal cells; PA6 cells; dopamine; neurons; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap; Neurobiology; Neurobiologi; Molecular neurobiology; Molekylär neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Since the first successful derivation of human embryonic stem cells (hESC), rapid progress has been attained in the development of strategies in differentiation of these cells into various neural lineages, with the fundamental objective of using these cells for replacement and repair of damaged neuronal circuits in the central nervous system (CNS). Of particular interest are midbrain dopaminergic (mDA) neurons, which play a central role in regulation of voluntary movement. READ MORE

  4. 4. Endoplasmic Reticulum Dynamic Structural Changes in Neurons: The Fission-Fusion Phenomena

    Author : Krzysztof Kucharz; Sektion IV; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fragmentation; fission; endoplasmic reticulum; neurons; FRAP; primary cultures; organotypic slice cultures; in vivo; in situ; calcium; fusion; NMDA receptor; 2-photon microscopy; confocal microscopy;

    Abstract : The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is crucial for protein synthesis and protein maturation, is involved in cell stress and serves in neurons as the major intracellular Ca2+ store. Neuronal ER forms a continuous network of cisterns and tubules extending from soma to a subset of dendritic spines. READ MORE

  5. 5. Zinc-enriched neurons in the spinal cord, cerebellum and peripheral sympathetic system

    Author : Zhan-You Wang; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : autometallography; axonal transport; confocal laser scanning microscopy; immuno-electron microscopy; immunofluorescence; inhibitory neurons; sympathetic neurons; synaptic vesicles; zinc ions; zinc transporter;

    Abstract : Zinc ions are abundant in the nervous system and are involved in many biological functions. Most zinc is tightly bound to macromolecules, whereas a small fraction of zinc exists in synaptic vesicles of the zinc-enriched (ZEN) neurons, and can be visualized using various histochemical techniques, including autometallography (AMG).
