AIMS: Neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) is expressed in the mouse striatum; however, it is not clear the NT-3 role in striatal physiology. The expression levels of mRNAs and immune localization of the NT-3 protein and its receptor TrkC are altered in the striatum following damage induced by an in vivo treatment with 3-nitropropionic acid (3-NP), a mitochondrial toxin used to mimic the histopathological hallmarks of Huntington's disease (HD). The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of NT-3 on corticostriatal synaptic transmission and its plasticity in both the control and damaged striatum...

REVIEW
Juliana Barrios, Xingbin Ai
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Asthma is a chronic airway disease that affects more than 300 million people worldwide. Current treatment focuses on symptomatic relief by temporally dampening inflammation and relaxing the airway. Novel combative strategies against asthma and hopefully a cure are yet to be developed. The goal of this review is to summarize recent literature on neurotrophins (NTs) in experimental models and clinical settings of asthma research. RECENT FINDINGS: We highlight studies of early phases of asthma that collectively reveal a profound impact of elevated NT levels following initial detrimental insults on long-term airway dysfunction...

We investigated plasma microRNA (miRNA) profiles associated with variation of hyperglycemia, measured as hemoglobin A 1c (HbA 1c ), in two panels of patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Using the HTG Molecular Diagnostics EdgeSeq platform, 2,083 miRNAs were measured in plasma from 71 patients included in a screening panel. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction was used to measure the candidate miRNAs in plasma from 95 patients included in an independent replication panel. We found 10 miRNAs replicated in both panels and four with high statistical significance...

Neurotrophins, including brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), are expressed in the hippocampus, as well as their precursors, the pro-neurotrophins. The neurotrophins signal through specific tyrosine kinase receptors and the low affinity receptor p75NTR. Moreover, the pro-neurotrophins are considered to be biologically active by signaling through specific receptors. The neurotrophins, especially BDNF, are involved in processes related to learning and memory. Furthermore, it is thought that BDNF also plays a crucial role in major depression...

BACKGROUND: Ischemic stroke is a multifactorial neurologic injury that causes mortality and disability worldwide. Poststroke depression is the most important neuropsychiatric consequence of stroke. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor is a neurotrophin family member that plays key role in regulating neuron survival and differentiation. Studies found a polymorphism in brain-derived neurotrophic factor gene (rs6265) may associate with the ischemic stroke and poststroke depression risk. However, the results are inconclusive and inconsistent...

INTRODUCTION: Sensory neural hearing loss could lead to some structural and physiological changes in the auditory pathways, such as alteration in the expression of neurotrophins. These factors, especially Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), play an important role in synaptic functions and experience-related plasticity. Restoring cochlear function after hearing loss is possible through cochlear implantation (CI). Evaluation of the blood concentration changes of neurotrophins as prerequisites of plasticity could help scientists to determine the prognosis of CI as in the candidacy procedure or enhancing prosthesis function by adding the exact needed amount of BDNF to the electrode array...

Glia maturation factor-β (GMFB) is considered to be a growth and differentiation factor for both glia and neurons. GMFB has been found to be upregulated in several neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration conditions. It may function by mediating apoptosis and by modulating the expression of superoxide dismutase, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor, and neurotrophin. In this review, we mainly discussed the role of GMFB in several neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases. On review of the literature, we propose that GMFB may be a promising therapeutic target for neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases...

The current study analyzed the effects of environmental enrichment versus isolation housing on the behavioral sensitization to nicotine in the neonatal quinpirole (NQ; dopamine D2-like agonist) model of dopamine D2 receptor supersensitivity, a rodent model of schizophrenia. NQ treatment in rats increases dopamine D2 receptor sensitivity throughout the animal's lifetime, consistent with schizophrenia. Animals were administered NQ (1 mg/kg) or saline (NS) from postnatal day (P)1 to P21, weaned, and immediately placed into enriched housing or isolated in wire cages throughout the experiment...

Astrocytes are a heterogeneous population of glial cells that react to brain insults through a process referred to as astrogliosis. Reactive astrocytes are characterized by an increase in proliferation, size, migration to the injured zone and release of a plethora of chemical mediators such as NGF and BDNF. The aim of this study was to determine whether there are brain region-associated responses of astrocytes to an injury and to the neurotrophins NGF and BDNF. We used the scratch injury model to study the closure of a wound inflicted on a monolayer of astrocytes obtained from cortex, hippocampus or striatum...

Nogo receptor type 1 (NgR1) is known to inhibit neuronal regeneration in the CNS. We have previously identified lateral olfactory tract usher substance (LOTUS) interacts with NgR1 and inhibits its function by blocking its ligand binding. Therefore, LOTUS is expected to have therapeutic potential for the promotion of neuronal regeneration. However, it remains unknown whether the soluble form of LOTUS (s-LOTUS) also has an inhibitory action on NgR1 function as a candidate for therapeutic agents. Here, we show that s-LOTUS inhibits NgR1-mediated signaling by inhibiting the molecular interaction between NgR1 and its co-receptor p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75 NTR )...

Selective vulnerability or resilience to mood disorders is related to individual differences or personality. In the present study forced swim test (FST) was used as a tool for division of male rats according to their immobility behavior. The animals were subjected to a chronic unpredictable mild stress (CUS). Depressive-like behavior and modifications in brain neurotrophin system of were examined after CUS exposure. The low immobile (LI) and high immobile (HI) rats demonstrated elusive differences in expression of BDNF ExVI mRNA and TrkA mRNA which was higher in hippocampus and frontal cortex, respectively, of HI rats as compared to LI animals...

Resistance to anoikis allows cancer cells to survive during systemic circulation, however, the mechanism underlying anoikis resistance remains unclear. Here we show that A disintegrin and metalloprotease 10 (ADAM10)-mediated cleavage of p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR) and subsequent generation of the p75NTR intracellular domain (ICD) endows cancer cells with resistance to anoikis. p75NTR ICD promoted expression of TNF receptor associated factor 6 (TRAF6), a critical intermediary in p75NTR ICD-mediated signal transduction, at the translational level...

Neural stem cells (NSCs) are characterized by the ability of self‑renewal and capacity to proliferate and produce new nervous tissue. NSCs are capable of differentiating to three lineages of neural cells, including neurons, oligodendrocytes and astrocytes. Furthermore, hippocampal NSCs transplantation can improve the neurological deficits associated with expression of cytokines. Therefore, to compare the properties of NSCs of tree shrews and rats in vitro, NSCs from tree shrews (tsNSCs) and rats f(rNSCs) were isolated...

The aim of this study was to identify long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) which may prove useful for risk-classifying patients with melanoma. For this purpose, based on a dataset from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), we selected and analyzed samples from melanoma stages I, II, III and IV, from which differentially expressed lncRNAs were identified. The lncRNAs were classified using two-way hierarchical clustering analysis and analysis of support vector machine (SVM), followed by Kaplan-Meier survival analysis. The prognostic capacity of the signature was verified on an independent dataset...

The dynorphinergic system is involved in pain transmission at spinal level, where dynorphin exerts antinociceptive or pronociceptive effects, based on its opioid or non-opioid actions. Surprisingly, little evidence is currently available concerning the supraspinal role of the dynorphinergic system in pain conditions. The present study aimed to investigate whether neuropathic pain is accompanied by prodynorphin (Pdyn) and κ-opioid receptor (Oprk1) gene expression alterations in selected mouse brain areas. To this end, mice were subjected to chronic constriction injury of the right sciatic nerve and neuropathic pain behavioral signs were ascertained after 14 days...

Acute and chronic trigeminal (TG) neuropathies are the cause of considerable distress, with limited treatments available at present. Nociceptive neurons enriched with the vanilloid type 1 receptor (VR1) partake in pain sensation and sensitization in the TG system. While VR1 blockers with anti-nociceptive potential are of substantial medical interest, their use remains limited due to poor selectivity and lack of cell-targeting capabilities. This study describes a methodology for the alleviation of nociception via targeted depletion of VR1 in TG sensory neurons in rats...

In preterm infants, phenobarbital is the first-line antiepileptic drug for neonatal seizures while caffeine is used for the treatment of apnea. Data from experimental animals suggest that phenobarbital and other anticonvulsants are toxic for the developing brain, while neuroprotective effects have been reported for caffeine both in newborn rodents and preterm human infants. To characterize the interaction of phenobarbital and caffeine in the hippocampus of the developing rodent brain, we examined the effects of both drugs given separately or together on postnatal neurogenesis after administration to neonatal rats throughout postnatal day (P) 4 to P6...

Secreted amyloid precursor protein alpha (sAPPα) is a potent neurotrophin in the CNS but a dedicated receptor has not been found. However, protein interactions involving amyloid beta (Aβ), a peptide cleaved from the same parent peptide as sAPPα, indicate that insulin receptors (IRs) could be a target of amyloid peptides. In this study, in vitro analysis of cortical neuronal cultures revealed that exogenous sAPPα increased IR phosphorylation in the absence of insulin. Furthermore, in an APP overexpressing mouse model, sAPPα bound IRs in the cortex with significantly greater binding in hypoinsulinemic animals...
