Multiple cascade effects of oxidative stress on astroglia.
Many neurodegenerative diseases share common underlying features, most prominent of which are dysregulation of calcium homeostasis and reactive astrogliosis, ultimately triggered by oxidative stress. Interestingly, an additional feature of the early response to stress conditions is the upregulation and release of acetylcholinesterase (AChE). This study therefore investigates the link between oxidative stress, calcium influx, gene expression, protein synthesis, and AChE release. We report that...Expand abstract
