e. ratio of successfully interrupted seizures) effects of responsive stimulations.\n\nResults: SNr-DBS was more efficient than auditory stimulation in blocking seizures (97% vs. 52% of seizures interrupted, respectively). Sensitivity to minimal interstimulus interval was much stronger for SNr-DBS than for auditory stimulation. Pfizer Licensed Compound Library Anti-epileptic efficacy of SNr-DBS was remarkably stable during long-term (24 h) recordings.\n\nConclusions: In the GAERS model, we demonstrated the superiority of SNr-DBS to suppress seizures,

as compared to auditory stimulation. Importantly, we found no long-term habituation to rDBS. However, when seizure recurrence was frequent, rDBS lack anti-epileptic efficacy because

responsive stimulations became too close (time interval < 40 s) suggesting the existence of a refractory period. This study thus motivates the use of automated rDBS in patients having transient seizures separated by sufficiently long intervals. VX-770 clinical trial (c) 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.”
“Protein kinase A (PKA) plays a crucial role in tau hyperphosphorylation, an early event of Alzheimer disease (AD), and 17 beta-estradiol replacement in aging women forestalls the onset of AD. However, the role of estradiol in PKA-induced tau hyperphosphorylation is not known. Here, we investigated the effect of 17 beta-estradiol on cAMP/PKA activity and the PKA-induced tau hyperphosphorylation in HEK293 cells stably expressing tau441. We found that 17 beta-estradiol effectively attenuated forskolin-induced overactivation of PKA and elevation of cAMP, and thus prevented tau from hyperphosphorylation. These data provide the first evidence that 17 beta-estradiol can inhibit PKA overactivation and the PKA-induced tau hyperphosphorylation, implying a preventive role of 17 beta-estradiol in AD-like tau pathology.”
“In the title coordination polymer,

AZD5582 [Cd(C10H8O4)(C12H10N2)](n), two centrosymmetrically related Cd-II atoms are bridged by two 1,3-phenylenediacetate ligands forming a chain along the [100] direction. The distorted pentagonal-bipyramidal coordination about each metal atom is completed by the N atoms of bridging 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl) ethene ligands, which link these one-dimensional chains into a two-dimensional net extending along the (101) plane.”
“Objectives: A gluten-free diet omitting wheat, rye, and barley is the only effective treatment for coeliac disease. The necessity of excluding oats from the diet has remained controversial. We studied the toxicity of oats in children with coeliac disease during a 2-year follow-up by investigating jejunal transglutaminase 2 (TG2)-targeted I-A-class autoantibody deposits, a potentially more sensitive disease marker than serum antibodies or conventional histology.
