Immune cell BDNF secretion is associated with white matter volume in multiple sclerosis

Journal of Neuroimmunology

B Weinstock-GuttmanMurali Ramanathan

Abstract

To investigate the relationship between immune cell secretion of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) with clinical and MRI variables in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. BDNF exerts beneficial effects on neuronal growth and repair and is secreted by both neurons and immune cells. C...read more

Neurotransmitters

Neurotransmitters are released from synaptic vesicles in presynaptic neurons in response to neural activity, diffuse across the synaptic cleft, and bind specific receptors in order to bring about changes in postsynaptic neurons. Here is the latest research.

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.

Human Immune Variation: Genetic, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Brain

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of the area of interest. MRI of the brain is commonly performed to visualize the brain and related structures in detail. Discover the latest research of MRI and the brain here.

Encephalitis

Encephalitis is a condition of inflammation of the brain parenchyma, occurs as a result of infectious or autoimmune causes, and can lead to encephalopathy, seizures, focal neurological deficits, neurological disability, and death. Here is the latest research.

Diffuse Myelinoclastic Sclerosis

Diffuse myelinoclastic sclerosis is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by pseudotumoral demyelinating lesions. It is sometimes considered a variant of multiple sclerosis while other researchers consider it a distinct disease. Find the latest research on diffuse myelinoclastic sclerosis here.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is a demyelinating autoimmune disease of the CNS, resulting in symptoms including optic neuritis and motor weakness. Discover the latest research on Multiple Sclerosis here.

Neurotoxicity, Inflammation & Neuroprotection

The end result of the inflammatory process, neurotoxicity and/or neuroprotection, is a function of the fine balance between the two cellular systems, i.e., of the complex signaling relationships between anti-inflammatory neuroprotective factors (neurotrophins and other chemical mediators) and proinflammatory neurotoxic factors (tnf, free radicals, certain cytokines, etc). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neurotoxicity, inflammation and neuroprotection.

Astrocytes

Astrocytes are glial cells that support the blood-brain barrier, facilitate neurotransmission, provide nutrients to neurons, and help repair damaged nervous tissues. Here is the latest research.

Hippocampal Neurogenesis

Hippocampal neurogenesis is the formation of new neurons from neural progenitor cells in the dentate gyrus. This is important for behavioural responses, learning and memory. Here is the latest research on hippocampal neurogenesis.

Interferon Signalling

Via interaction with their specific receptors, interferons (IFNs) activate signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) complexes. STAT activation initiates the classical Janus kinase-STAT (JAK-STAT) signaling pathway. In this pathway, JAKs associate with IFN receptors and, following receptor engagement with IFN, phosphorylate both STAT1 and STAT2. As a result, an IFN-stimulated gene factor 3 (ISGF3) complex forms—this contains STAT1, STAT2 and a third transcription factor called IRF9—and moves into the cell nucleus. Inside the nucleus, the ISGF3 complex binds to specific nucleotide sequences called IFN-stimulated response elements (ISREs) in the promoters of certain genes, known as IFN stimulated genes. Discover the latest research on interferon signalling here.

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.

T cells: Costimulatory Receptors

T cell activation requires engagement of both the T cell receptor and a co-stimulatory molecule. Lack of a co-stimulatory signal can result in T cell anergy, deletion, or immune tolerance. Find the latest research on T cell co-stimulatory receptors here.

Immune System in Humans: Tissues & Ages

Mapping the human immune system spatially, within and between tissues, will provide the basis for studying mechanisms of tissue residency and the effects of aging. Find new research on analysis of the immune system by multiple approaches here.

MS: Therapies

The feed focuses on therapeutic interventions used to treat Multiple Sclerosis.

Human Immune Variation: Genetics, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

Immunogenetics of Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) was one of the first conditions shown to be associated with HLA class II factors. Find the latest research on MS here, including HLA studies providing insights on the genetics of the susceptibility to MS.

Myelin Plasticity

Myelin plasticity, as another form of activity-dependent plasticity, is relevant not only to nervous system development but also to complex information processing tasks that involve coupling and synchrony among different brain rhythms. Several cellular, molecular, and epigenetic mechanisms have been investigated as contributors to myelin plasticity. Find the latest research on myelin plasticity here.
