Anti-epileptogenic effect of beta-carotene and vitamin A in pentylenetetrazole-kindling model of epilepsy in mice

Epilepsy Research

Abstract

Vitamin A (Vit A) and its derivatives have recently been reported to be implicated in synaptic plasticity. In this study, the possible effect of Vit A and its precursor, beta-carotene on acute seizure and kindling, induced by pentylenetetrazole (PTZ) was assessed. Vit A and beta-caroten...read more

Angelman Syndrome

Angelman syndrome is a neurogenetic imprinting disorder caused by loss of the maternally inherited UBE3A gene and is characterized by generalized epilepsy, limited expressive speech, sleep dysfunction, and movement disorders. Here is the latest research.

Gap Junctions

Gap junctions are a specialized intercellular connection between a multitude of animal cell-types.They directly connect the cytoplasm of two cells, which allows various molecules, ions and electrical impulses to directly pass through a regulated gate between cells. Discover the latest research on gap junctions here.

Neuronal Plasticity

Neuronal plasticity is the brain’s ability to change its structure and function in response to internal or external factors. Here is the latest research on mechanisms that influence this process.

Gap Junctions & Intercellular Signaling

Gap junctions are specialized intercellular communication channels that transfer molecules between neighboring cells and thereby alter intracellular signaling and metabolism. Here is the latest research on the influence of gap junctions on intercellular signaling.

Synaptic Junctions

Synaptic or neuronal junctions are the site of transmission of electrical nerve impulses between neurons or between neurons and effector cells. Discover the latest research on synaptic junctions here.

Granule Cell in Hippocampal Processing

Granule cells present in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus and are essential for memory functioning. These cells release granule molecules that are important factors for information processing and synaptic plasticity. Here is the latest research on granule cell in hippocampal processing.

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Autoimmune Polyendocrinopathies

Autoimmune polyendocrinopathies, also called polyglandular autoimmune syndromes (PGASs), or polyendocrine autoimmune syndromes(PASs), are a heterogeneous group of rare diseases characterized by autoimmune activity against more than one endocrine organ, although non-endocrine organs can be affected. Discover the latest research on autoimmune polyendocrinopathies here.

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by unprovoked and recurrent seizures. Discover the latest research on factors and mechanisms that underlie epilepsy here.

Gap Junctions&Intercellular Signaling

Gap junctions are specialized intercellular communication channels that transfer molecules between neighboring cells and thereby alter intracellular signaling and metabolism. Here is the latest research on the influence of gap junctions on intercellular signaling.

Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes

This feed focuses on a rare genetic condition called Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes, which are characterized by autoantibodies against multiple endocrine organs. This can lead to Type I Diabetes.
