Human Pluripotent Stem Cell-Derived Neural Cells as a Relevant Platform for Drug Screening in Alzheimer's Disease.

Juan Antonio Garcia-Leon, Laura Caceres-Palomo, Elisabeth Sanchez-Mejias, Marina Mejias-Ortega, Cristina Nuñez-Diaz, Juan Jose Fernandez-Valenzuela, Raquel Sanchez-Varo, Jose Carlos Davila, Javier Vitorica, Antonia Gutierrez,

Extracellular amyloid-beta deposition and intraneuronal Tau-laden neurofibrillary tangles are prime features of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The pathology of AD is very complex and still not fully understood, since different neural cell types are involved in the disease. Although neuronal function is clearly deteriorated in AD patients, recently, an increasing number ... Read more >>

Enhancing microtubule stabilization rescues cognitive deficits and ameliorates pathological phenotype in an amyloidogenic Alzheimer's disease model.

Juan Jose Fernandez-Valenzuela, Raquel Sanchez-Varo, Clara Muñoz-Castro, Vanessa De Castro, Elisabeth Sanchez-Mejias, Victoria Navarro, Sebastian Jimenez, Cristina Nuñez-Diaz, Angela Gomez-Arboledas, Ines Moreno-Gonzalez, Marisa Vizuete, Jose Carlos Davila, Javier Vitorica, Antonia Gutierrez,

In Alzheimer's disease (AD), and other tauopathies, microtubule destabilization compromises axonal and synaptic integrity contributing to neurodegeneration. These diseases are characterized by the intracellular accumulation of hyperphosphorylated tau leading to neurofibrillary pathology. AD brains also accumulate amyloid-beta (Aβ) deposits. However, the effect of microtubule stabilizing agents on Aβ pathology has ... Read more >>

Phagocytic clearance of presynaptic dystrophies by reactive astrocytes in Alzheimer's disease.

Angela Gomez-Arboledas, Jose C Davila, Elisabeth Sanchez-Mejias, Victoria Navarro, Cristina Nuñez-Diaz, Raquel Sanchez-Varo, Maria Virtudes Sanchez-Mico, Laura Trujillo-Estrada, Juan Jose Fernandez-Valenzuela, Marisa Vizuete, Joan X Comella, Elena Galea, Javier Vitorica, Antonia Gutierrez,

Reactive astrogliosis, a complex process characterized by cell hypertrophy and upregulation of components of intermediate filaments, is a common feature in brains of Alzheimer's patients. Reactive astrocytes are found in close association with neuritic plaques; however, the precise role of these glial cells in disease pathogenesis is unknown. In this ... Read more >>
