Abstract

Impairment of the axonal transport system mediated by intracellular microtubules (MTs) is known to be a major drawback in neurodegenerative processes. Due to a growing interest on the neurotoxic effects of selenium in environmental health, our study aimed to assess the relationship betw...read more

Cytoskeletal Collection

The cytoskeleton is a dynamic network of interlinking protein filaments that extends from the plasma membrane to the nucleus. Here is the latest research.

Motor Neuron Disease

Motor neuron diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and spinal muscular atrophy are progressive neurodegenerative diseases that result in the death of motor neurons. Discover the latest research on motor neuron disease here.

Ubiquitin System

Ubiquitin is a small regulatory protein that is attached to proteins as a post-translational modification in a process known as ubiquitination to regulate protein turnover, location, or activity. Here is the latest research on the ubiquitin system.

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.

Microtubules & Microtubule-Associated Proteins

Microtubule organization and dynamics are regulated by microtubule-associated proteins that interact with microtubules to regulate dynamic instability. Here is the latest research on microtubules and microtubule-associated proteins.

Organelles in Neurodegeneration

Neurodegeneration is the progressive loss of neural structures and functions, including neuronal death. This feed focuses on dynamics of neuronal organelles in neurodegenerative diseases.

Cytoskeleton & Disease

Cytoskeleton spans the cytoplasm and interconnects the cell nucleus with the extracellular matrix, thereby forming a structural link between molecules involved in cell communication on the one hand, and gene expression on the other. Since the cytoskeleton is involved in virtually all cellular processes, abnormalities in this essential cellular component frequently result in disease. Discover the latest research on cytoskeleton and disease here.

Cytoskeletal & Motor Biophysics

Cytoskeletal motors of the dynein, kinesin and myosin superfamilies maintain and adapt subcellular organelle organization to meet functional demands and support the vesicular transport of material between organelles. Here is the latest research on cytoskeletal and motor biophysics.

Astrocytes and Neurodegeneration

Astrocytes are important for the health and function of the central nervous system. When these cells stop functioning properly, either through gain of function or loss of homeostatic controls, neurodegenerative diseases can occur. Here is the latest research on astrocytes and neurodegeneration.

ALS

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neuron disease, is associated with the death of neurons that control voluntary muscles. Discover the latest research on ALS here.

Cytoskeleton & Cell Polarity

A dynamic cytoskeleton is critical for the generation of cell polarity. This feed focuses on cell polarity and the cytoskeleton, including actin and microtubular cytoskeletal organization.

Neuromuscular Disorders

Neuromuscular disorders result in impaired functioning of the muscles. Discover the latest research on these disorders, including ALS, and the underlying genetic aspects here.

ALS: Therapies

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neuron disease, is associated with the death of neurons that control voluntary muscles. Discover the latest research on ALS therapies here.
