Capillary Pericytes Express Α-Smooth Muscle Actin, Which Requires Prevention of Filamentous-Actin Depolymerization For Detection
(eLife Sciences, 2018)
Recent evidence suggests that capillary pericytes are contractile and play a crucial role in the regulation of microcirculation. However, failure to detect components of the contractile apparatus in capillary pericytes, ...
Nuclear Expansion And Pore Opening Are Instant Signs Of Neuronal Hypoxia And Can Identify Poorly Fixed Brains
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
The initial phase of neuronal death is not well characterized. Here, we show that expansion of the nuclear membrane without losing its integrity along with peripheralization of chromatin are immediate signs of neuronal ...
Inadequate Brain Glycogen Or Sleep Increases Spreading Depression Susceptibility
Objective: Glycogen in astrocyte processes contributes to maintenance of low extracellular glutamate and K+ concentrations around excitatory synapses. Sleep deprivation (SD), a common migraine trigger, induces transcriptional ...
