Spatiotemporal dynamics of PDGFRβ expression in pericytes and glial scar formation in penetrating brain injuries in adults.

Summary of "Spatiotemporal dynamics of PDGFRβ expression in pericytes and glial scar formation in penetrating brain injuries in adults."

Understanding the spatiotemporal dynamics of reactive cell types following brain injury is important for future therapeutic interventions. We have previously used penetrating cortical injuries following intracranial recordings as a brain repair model to study scar-forming nestin-expressing cells. We now explore the relationship between nestin-expressing cells, PDGFRβ pericytes and Olig2 glia, including their proliferation and functional maturation.

TGF-β Secretion by M2 Macrophages Induces Glial Scar Formation by Activating Astrocytes In Vitro.

Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is a key factor that promotes fibrosis or scar formation, which could become an obstacle in the repair of impaired axons in the central nervous system (CNS) of t...

Oleoylethanolamide inhibits glial activation via moudulating PPARα and promotes motor function recovery after brain ischemia.

Glial activation and scar formation impede the neurological function recovery after cerebral ischemia. Oleoylethanolamide (OEA), a bioactive lipid mediator, shows neuroprotection against acute brain i...

TGN-020 alleviates edema and inhibits astrocyte activation and glial scar formation after spinal cord compression injury in rats.

Identifying drugs that inhibit edema and glial scar formation and increase neuronal survival is crucial to improving outcomes after spinal cord injury (SCI). Here, we used 2-(nicotinamide)-1,3,4-thiad...

Regulator of G-protein signaling 5 regulates the shift from perivascular to parenchymal pericytes in the chronic phase after stroke.

Poststroke recovery requires multiple repair mechanisms, including vascular remodeling and blood-brain barrier (BBB) restoration. Brain pericytes are essential for BBB repair and angiogenesis after st...

Conditional Ablation of Reactive Astrocytes to Dissect Their Roles in Spinal Cord Injury and Repair.

Astrocytes become reactive in response to spinal cord injury (SCI) and ultimately form a histologically apparent glial scar at the lesion site. It is controversial whether astrocytic scar is detriment...

Molecular Mechanisms of microRNA-494 Involving in Cerebral Ischemia

We and other investigations suggested that the activation of nerve cell cycle following cerebral ischemia led to neuronal apoptosis, glial cell proliferation and the formation of glial sca...

The Use of Fractional Ablative CO2 Laser vs Control on Acute Traumatic Injuries to Prevent Scar Formation

Surgical standard for treating traumatic burn injury scarring is to wait one year following the initial assault prior to beginning treatment. This study investigates the use of fractional ...

Silicone Gel to Improve Scar in Microtia Patients

Effort to reduce post-surgical scar is especially important for microtia patients. Even the scar lies posterior to ear auricle, but hypertrophic scar contracture may limit the ear auricle ...

The Efficacy and Molecular Mechanism of Botulinum Toxin in the Reduction of Breast Reduction Mammoplasty Scar Formation

1. Test the ability of botulinum toxin type A, when injected into the surgical incision at the time of surgery, to decrease postoperative scar scores compared to control (normal ...

Spatiotemporal Patterns of Pain During Exercise

The purpose of this study will be to study the individual spatiotemporal structure and dynamics of topologically defined areas of perceived body discomfort and pain during exercise. Partic...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A sharply elevated, irregularly shaped, progressively enlarging scar resulting from formation of excessive amounts of collagen in the dermis during connective tissue repair. It is differentiated from a hypertrophic scar (CICATRIX, HYPERTROPHIC) in that the former does not spread to surrounding tissues.

Unique slender cells with multiple processes extending along the capillary vessel axis and encircling the vascular wall, also called mural cells. Pericytes are imbedded in the BASEMENT MEMBRANE shared with the ENDOTHELIAL CELLS of the vessel. Pericytes are important in maintaining vessel integrity, angiogenesis, and vascular remodeling.

An intermediate filament protein found only in glial cells or cells of glial origin. MW 51,000.

Vitreoretinal membrane shrinkage or contraction secondary to the proliferation of primarily retinal pigment epithelial cells and glial cells, particularly fibrous astrocytes, followed by membrane formation. The formation of fibrillar collagen and cellular proliferation appear to be the basis for the contractile properties of the epiretinal and vitreous membranes.

Solitary or multiple benign hepatic vascular tumors, usually occurring in women of 20-50 years of age. The nodule, poorly encapsulated, consists of a central stellate fibrous scar and normal liver elements such as HEPATOCYTES, small BILE DUCTS, and KUPFFER CELLS among the intervening fibrous septa. The pale colored central scar represents large blood vessels with hyperplastic fibromuscular layer and narrowing lumen.
