    [Abstract] In order for the brain to function properly, a carefully orchestrated homeostasis must be maintained. To help regulate this delicate balance, the brain has developed a highly selective blood-brain barrier (BBB). Under normal conditions, the BBB excludes harmful blood-borne material from the brain parenchyma. However, numerous neuropathological ...
    Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein 35-55 (MOG 35-55)-induced Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis: A Model of Chronic Multiple Sclerosis
    Authors:  Sakie Miyamura, Nagisa Matsuo, Kazuki Nagayasu, Hisashi Shirakawa and Shuji Kaneko, date: 12/20/2019, view: 1788, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the common demyelinating disease of human central nervous system. Among mouse models available to study MS, including the cuprizone application and lysolecithin-injection models, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) model is widely used so that chronic EAE model of C57BL/6J can reflect the autoimmune ...
    Arginine-rich Peptides Can Actively Mediate Liquid-liquid Phase Separation
    Authors:  Steven Boeynaems, Mathias De Decker, Peter Tompa and Ludo Van Den Bosch, date: 09/05/2017, view: 8414, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Studying liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) of proteins provides key insights into the biogenesis of membraneless organelles and pathological protein aggregation in disease. We have established a protocol for inducing the phase separation of arginine-rich peptides, which allows for studying their molecular determinants and dynamics (Boeynaems ...
    Isolation of Rodent Brain Vessels
    Authors:  Cristina Carvalho and Paula I. Moreira, date: 09/05/2017, view: 5577, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The prevalence of neurodegenerative diseases is increasing worldwide. Cerebrovascular disorders and/or conditions known to affect brain vasculature, such as diabetes, are well-known risk factors for neurodegenerative diseases. Thus, the evaluation of the brain vasculature is of great importance to better understand the mechanisms underlying brain ...
    ELISA Detection of Endogenous Serum Albumin in the Mouse Brain: A Measure of Extravasation Following Brain Injury
    Authors:  Shotaro Michinaga and Yutaka Koyama, date: 05/05/2015, view: 7448, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] After stroke and brain contusion, serum proteins extravasate into nerve tissue through disrupted blood-brain barrier (BBB). Because extravasations of serum proteins result in vasogenic brain edema, serum albumin level in the brain is an indicator of BBB disruption and brain edema after brain insults. In this protocol, extravasation of endogenous ...
