Overexpression of Copper/Zinc Superoxide Dismutase in the Organum Vasculosum of the Lamina Terminalis (OVLT) Attenuates Chronic Angiotensin II-Induced Hypertension in the Rat

Angiotensin II (AngII) can reach the brain through circumventricular organs (CVOs), such as the subfornical organ (SFO) and the organum vasculosum of the lamina terminalis, to control blood pressure (OVLT). We wanted to see if elevated amounts of superoxide in the OVLT play a role in AngII’s hypertensive effects....

Study on General Neurolinguistics and the Comprehension Ability

General Neurolinguistics is intended to correspond to the major revision of General Semantics that Alfred Korzybski predicted would happen within 25 years of his death (1950), and that emerges naturally when the mental barrier erected by the unwarranted certainty that physical reality cannot be confirmed with certainty and cannot...

Telomerase in Brain and its Implications in Neurodegenerative Diseases

Telomerase is an enzyme that stretches and protects the ends of chromosomes, known as telomeres. This reverse transcriptase function is essential for dividing cells whose telomeres are constantly shortening. TERT (Telomerase Reverse Transcriptase) has a number of non-canonical roles in addition to its canonical role in preserving telomeres in...

Effects of Formaldehyde on Swiss Albino Mice

In a number of concentrations, formaldehyde (FA) is toxic. FA can react with lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids that are cellular components, even at lower concentrations. By harming parenchyma and degradation of functions, FA causes cellular toxic effects in the liver, lungs, kidney and brain. This research was performed...
