The NLRP3 inflammasome is involved in the neuroprotective mechanism of neural stem cells against microglia-mediated toxicity in SH-SY5Y cells via the attenuation of tau hyperphosphorylation and amyloidogenesis.

Elaine Wan Ling Chan, Sangeetha Krishnansamy, Cindy Wong, Sook Yee Gan,

The cognitive impairment caused by Alzheimer's disease (AD) is associated with beta-amyloid (Aβ) and tau proteins, and is accompanied by inflammation. Recently, a novel inflammasome signaling pathway has been uncovered. Inflammasomes are implicated in the execution of inflammatory responses and pyroptotic death leading to neurodegeneration. Thus, the inflammasome signaling pathway ... Read more >>

Shear stress modulates the expression of the atheroprotective protein Cx37 in endothelial cells.

Anna Pfenniger, Cindy Wong, Esther Sutter, Simon Cuhlmann, Sylvie Dunoyer-Geindre, François Mach, Anton J Horrevoets, Paul C Evans, Rob Krams, Brenda R Kwak,

High laminar shear stress (HLSS) is vasculoprotective partly through induction of Kruppel-like factor 2 (KLF2). Connexin37 (Cx37) is highly expressed in endothelial cells (ECs) of healthy arteries, but not in ECs overlying atherosclerotic lesions. Moreover, Cx37 deletion in apolipoprotein E-deficient (ApoE(-/-)) mice increases susceptibility to atherosclerosis. We hypothesized that shear ... Read more >>
