Summary of "Kellerin alleviates cognitive impairment in mice after ischemic stroke by multiple mechanisms."

Ischemic stroke is a global disease with high disability and mortality rates. Cognitive impairment is one of the major clinical features of ischemic stroke, and microglia-mediated inflammation has been shown to be an important contributor to the pathogenesis of ischemic stroke. Kellerin, extracted from Ferula sinkiangensis, was previously shown to inhibit microglial activation and exert a strong anti-neuroinflammatory effect. However, there is no report of the potential therapeutic effect of kellerin on ischemic stroke by targeting microglial cells. In this study, we wanted to examine the effects of kellerin on ischemic stroke in the bilateral common carotid artery occlusion (BCCAO) model and the lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-activated microglia model. We found that kellerin alleviated cognitive impairment, decreased neuronal loss, suppressed microglial activation, and transformed microglia from the pro-inflammatory M1 phenotype to the anti-inflammatory M2 phenotype in BCCAO mice. Moreover, in in vitro studies, we found that kellerin regulated microglial polarization and inhibited the NLRP3 and MAPK signaling pathways after LPS treatment. These findings provide a new understanding of the function of kellerin in ischemic stroke, and suggest that kellerin could be a potential therapeutic agent for the treatment of ischemic stroke.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.

A drug combination of aspirin and dipyridamole that functions as a PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR, used to prevent THROMBOSIS and STROKE in TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK patients.

A condition of low alertness or cognitive impairment, usually associated with prolonged mental activities or stress.

Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.
