Summary of "Caspase-1 involves in bilirubin-induced injury of cultured rat cortical neurons."

Bilirubin encephalopathy, the most serious complication of hyperbilirubinemia during the neonatal period, with high mortality and morbidity, often causes irreversible neurological damage. Currently, caspase-1, a member of the cysteinyl aspartate-specific protease caspase family, is regarded as a key mediator of inflammatory processes, attracting widespread attention. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether caspase-1 is involved in bilirubin-induced neuronal injury.

Alpha-lipoic acid protects against cadmium-induced neuronal injury by inhibiting the endoplasmic reticulum stress eIF2α-ATF4 pathway in rat cortical neurons in vitro and in vivo.

The heavy metal cadmium (Cd) is well known to be neurotoxic. Studies have shown that apoptosis plays an essential role in Cd-induced brain injury; however, the mechanisms underlying this injury accomp...

Autophagy activation alleviates nonylphenol-induced apoptosis in cultured cortical neurons.

Emerging evidence indicates that nonylphenol (NP), a widely diffused and stable environmental contaminant, causes damage to the central nervous system (CNS). Although NP could cross the blood-brain ba...

Astragaloside IV Protects Primary Cerebral Cortical Neurons from Oxygen and Glucose Deprivation/Reoxygenation by Activating the PKA/CREB Pathway.

Stroke is one of the major leading causes of death and disability worldwide, and post-stroke cognitive impairment is a major contributor to this disability. Astragaloside IV (AST-IV) is a primary bioa...

Astrocytes enhance the tolerance of rat cortical neurons to glutamate excitotoxicity.

Glutamate excitotoxicity is responsible for neuronal death in acute neurological disorders, including stroke, trauma and neurodegenerative diseases. Astrocytes are the main cells for the removal of gl...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cortical malformations secondary to abnormal cortical maturation after CELL MIGRATION in NEUROGENESIS. This group includes injury to the cortex during later stages of cortical development such as POLYMICROGYRIA and focal cortical dysplasias.

Inborn errors of bilirubin metabolism resulting in excessive amounts of bilirubin in the circulating blood, either because of increased bilirubin production or because of delayed clearance of bilirubin from the blood.

A short pro-domain caspase that plays an effector role in APOPTOSIS. It is activated by INITIATOR CASPASES such as CASPASE 7; CASPASE 8; and CASPASE 10. Isoforms of this protein exist due to multiple alternative splicing of its MESSENGER RNA.

Heterogeneous disorders of cortical malformation characterized by excessive and small fused gyri and shallow sulci of the CORTEX with abnormal cortical lamination. It is considered a malformation secondary to abnormal post-migrational development of the neurons during cerebral cortical development and is associated with EPILEPSY and learning difficulties.

A short pro-domain caspase that plays an effector role in APOPTOSIS. It is activated by INITIATOR CASPASES such as CASPASE 3 and CASPASE 10. Several isoforms of this protein exist due to multiple alternative splicing of its MESSENGER RNA.
