Targeted deletion of the aquaglyceroporin AQP9 is protective in a mouse model of Parkinson's disease.

More than 90% of the cases of Parkinson's disease have unknown etiology. Gradual loss of dopaminergic neurons of substantia nigra is the main cause of morbidity in this disease. External factors such as environmental toxins are believed to play a role in the cell loss, although the cause of the selective vulnerability of dopaminergic neurons remains unknown. We have previously shown that aquaglyceroporin AQP9 is expressed in dopaminergic neurons and astrocytes of rodent brain. AQP9 is permeable to a broad s...


TIGAR inclusion pathology is specific for Lewy body diseases.

We previously reported up-regulation of tigarb (the zebrafish orthologue? of human TIGAR, TP53 -Induced Glycolysis and Apoptosis Regulator) in a zebrafish pink1 model of Parkinson's disease (PD). Genetic inactivation of tigarb led to the rescue of dopaminergic neurons and mitochondrial function in pink zebrafish. The aim of this study was to determine the relevance of TIGAR for human PD, investigate its disease specificity and identify relevant upstream and downstream mechanisms.

Cerebello-cortical network fingerprints differ between essential, Parkinson's and mimicked tremors.

Cerebello-thalamo-cortical loops play a major role in the emergence of pathological tremors and voluntary rhythmic movements. It is unclear whether these loops differ anatomically or functionally in different types of tremor. We compared age- and sex-matched groups of patients with Parkinson's disease or essential tremor and healthy controls (n = 34 per group). High-density 256-channel EEG and multi-channel EMG from extensor and flexor muscles of both wrists were recorded simultaneously while extending the ...

Dynamic cortical participation during bilateral, cyclical ankle movements: Effects of Parkinson's disease.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is known to increase asymmetry and variability of bilateral movements. However, the mechanisms of such abnormalities are not fully understood. Here, we aimed to investigate whether kinematic abnormalities are related to cortical participation during bilateral, cyclical ankle movements, which required i) maintenance of a specific frequency and ii) bilateral coordination of the lower limbs in an anti-phasic manner. We analyzed electroencephalographic and electromyographic signals from...

Autonomic Sweat Responses in REM Sleep Behavior Disorder and Parkinsonism.

Autonomic dysfunctions including sudomotor abnormalities commonly occur in early Parkinson's disease (PD), but little is known about potential sudomotor abnormalities in idiopathic REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (iRBD), a strong prodromal marker of PD. Our aim was to assess sudomotor dysfunction by galvanic skin response using SudoScan, as well as other autonomic markers in 49 iRBD, 40 PD (21 with RBD, 19 without), 20 atypical parkinsonisms, and 41 age-matched controls. All subjects underwent SudoScan of their...

C-terminal truncation exacerbates the aggregation and cytotoxicity of α-Synuclein: A vicious cycle in Parkinson's disease.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disease which usually associates with neuroinflammation. The main pathological characteristics of PD are dopaminergic neurons death and the presence of Lewy bodies which are composed of aggregated α-synuclein (α-Syn). Truncated forms of α-Syn are found in the brain of PD patients, and account for 10-30% of total synuclein in Lewy bodies. Caspase-1, which plays an important role in neuroinflammation, cleaves full-length α-Syn (α-Syn FL) to generate ...

Metabotropic glutamate receptors: targets for neuroprotective therapies in Parkinson disease.

Metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) are heavily expressed throughout the basal ganglia (BG), where they modulate neuronal excitability, transmitter release and long term synaptic plasticity. Therefore, targeting specific mGluR subtypes by means of selective drugs could be a possible strategy for restoring normal synaptic function and neuronal activity of the BG in Parkinson disease (PD). Preclinical studies have revealed that specific mGluR subtypes mediate significant neuroprotective effects that red...

P75 involved in the ubiquitination of α-synuclein in rotenone-based Parkinson's disease models.

For Parkinson's disease (PD), the regulatory mechanism of α-synuclein (α-syn) aggregation remains to be clarified. Ubiquitinationmodification is crucial for α-syn aggregation, with implications for Lewy body formation. Besides, ubiquitin ligase absentia homolog (siAH) is involved in the ubiquitinationof α-syn. We investigated whether the p75 receptorcan act as a potential regulator of α-syn accumulation through ubiquitination. Western blot, immunoprecipitation, gene transfection, and RNA interference t...

Quantitative electroencephalography as a marker of cognitive fluctuations in dementia with Lewy bodies and an aid to differential diagnosis.

We investigated for quantitative EEG (QEEG) differences between Alzheimer's disease (AD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and Parkinson's disease dementia (PDD) patients and healthy controls, and for QEEG signatures of cognitive fluctuations (CFs) in DLB.

To build-up a nomogram able to predict treatment success after Collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH) for Peyronie's disease (PD).

Parkinson's disease associated α-synuclein familial mutants promote dopaminergic neuronal death in Drosophila melanogaster.

α-Synuclein (α-Syn) aggregation and amyloid formation are associated with loss of dopaminergic neurons in Parkinson's disease (PD). In addition, familial mutations in α-Syn are shown to be one of the definite causes of PD. Here we have extensively studied familial PD associated α-Syn G51D, H50Q and E46K mutations using Drosophila model system. Our data showed that flies expressing α-Syn familial mutants have a shorter lifespan and exhibit more climbing defects compared to wild-type (WT) flies in an age...

DAT gene polymorphisms (rs28363170, rs393795) and levodopa-induced dyskinesias in Parkinson's disease.

L-dopa-induced dyskinesias (LID) is a common motor side effect of levodopa therapy of Parkinson's disease (PD). The identified predictors may only partially account for the risk of developing LID and genetic factors may contribute to this variability. The present study is aimed to investigate whether polymorphisms in the dopamine transporter gene (DAT) are associated with the risk of developing LID. Genotyping of the 40-bp VNTR (rs28363170) and rs393795 (A/C) polymorphisms of the DAT gene was performed in a...

The effect of estrogenic compounds on psychosis-like behaviour in female rats.

17β-estradiol treatment has shown benefit against schizophrenia symptoms, however long-term use may be associated with negative side-effects. Selective estrogen receptor modulators, such as raloxifene and tamoxifen, have been proposed as suitable alternatives to 17β-estradiol. An isomer of 17β-estradiol, 17α-estradiol, is considered less carcinogenic, and non-feminising in males, however little is known about its potential as a treatment for schizophrenia. Moreover, the mechanism underlying the therapeu...

Anatomical predictors of cognitive decline after subthalamic stimulation in Parkinson's disease.

We investigated whether pre-operative MRI measures of focal brain atrophy could predict cognitive decline occurring after deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). For that purpose, we prospectively collected data of 42 consecutive patients with PD who underwent bilateral STN-DBS. Normalized brain structure volumes and cortical thicknesses were measured on pre-operative T1-weighted MRI. Patients were tested for their cognitive performances befor...

Investigation of the Pharmaceutical Care in One Elderly Parkinson's Disease Patient with Psychotic Symptoms.

A 66-year-old male patient with a 10-year course of Parkinson's disease (PD) was admitted for hallucination lasting a half a month. After treatment with levodopa/carbidopa, selegiline, and piribedil, the patient's motor symptoms were improved while no significant effects were observed on psychotic symptoms. A clinical pharmacist analyzed the pharmacologic and pharmacokinetic characteristics of selegiline and piribedil, summarized the scheme of PD with psychotic symptoms in the literature, and discovered tha...

Comparative Motor Pre-clinical Assessment in Parkinson's Disease Using Supervised Machine Learning Approaches.

Millions of people worldwide are affected by Parkinson's disease (PD), which significantly worsens their quality of life. Currently, the diagnosis is based on assessment of motor symptoms, but interest toward non-motor symptoms is increasing, as well. Among them, idiopathic hyposmia (IH) is associated with an increased risk of developing PD in healthy adults. In this work, a wearable inertial device, named SensFoot V2, was used to acquire motor data from 30 healthy subjects, 30 people with IH, and 30 PD pat...

Chinese herbal medicine reduced the risk of stroke in patients with Parkinson's disease: A population-based retrospective cohort study from Taiwan.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is associated with a significantly increased risk of stroke. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has long been used in Asia to treat stroke, but there are no large-scale clinical data to confirm its efficacy in protecting PD patients against stroke. Herein, we analyzed a cohort of 1,000,000 records from Taiwan's National Health Insurance Research Database for the period 1997-2011, and identified 1,882 patients with new-onset PD. We matched 290 patients who received Chinese herbal med...

"Pure apathy" and cognitive dysfunctions in Parkinson's disease: A meta-analytic study.

Parkinson's Disease (PD) is characterized by motor and non-motor symptoms such as cognitive deficit and behavioural disturbances. Apathy seems to be related to cognitive impairment, but some studies failed to confirm the relationship due to different methodological procedures across studies. A meta-analysis on 8 studies was performed to explore the cognitive correlates of apathy without depression and dementia (pure apathy). Global cognitive function, memory, executive functions, processing speed/attention/...

Reciprocal interaction between monoaminergic systems and the pedunculopontine nucleus: Implication in the mechanism of L-DOPA.

The pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) is part of the mesencephalic locomotor region (MLR) and has been involved in the control of gait, posture, locomotion, sleep, and arousal. It likely participates in some motor and non-motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease and is regularly proposed as a surgical target to ameliorate gait, posture and sleep disorders in parkinsonian patients. The PPN overlaps with the monoaminergic systems including dopamine, serotonin and noradrenaline in the modulation of the above-mention...

Fingolimod (FTY720) is not protective in the subacute MPTP mouse model of Parkinson disease and does not lead to a sustainable increase of brain BDNF.

Parkinson disease (PD) is characterised by the loss of midbrain dopaminergic neurons and aggregates of α-synuclein termed Lewy bodies. Fingolimod (FTY720) is an agonist of sphingosine-1 phosphate receptors and an approved oral treatment for multiple sclerosis. Fingolimod elevates brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), an important neurotrophic factor for dopaminergic neurons. BDNF and fingolimod are beneficial in several animal models of PD. In order to validate the therapeutic potential of fingolimod f...
