A usually benign neoplasm that arises from the cuboidal epithelium of the choroid plexus and takes the form of an enlarged CHOROID PLEXUS, which may be associated with oversecretion of CSF. The tumor usually presents in the first decade of life with signs of increased intracranial pressure including HEADACHES; ATAXIA; DIPLOPIA; and alterations of mental status. In children it is most common in the lateral ventricles and in adults it tends to arise in the fourth ventricle. Malignant transformation to choroid plexus carcinomas may rarely occur.

Inhibition by lead of production and secretion of transthyretin in the choroid plexus: its relation to thyroxine transport at blood-CSF barrier. (1/601)

Long-term, low-dose Pb exposure in rats is associated with a significant decrease in transthyretin (TTR) concentrations in the CSF. Since CSF TTR, a primary carrier of thyroxine in brain, is produced and secreted by the choroid plexus, in vitro studies were conducted to test whether Pb exposure interferes with TTR production and/or secretion by the choroid plexus, leading to an impaired thyroxine transport at the blood-CSF barrier. Newly synthesized TTR molecules in the cultured choroidal epithelial cells were pulse-labeled with [35S]methionine. [35S]TTR in the cell lysates and culture media was immunoprecipitated and separated by SDS-PAGE, and quantitated by autoradiography and liquid scintillation counting. Pb treatment did not significantly alter the protein concentrations in the culture, but inhibited the synthesis of total [35S]TTR (cells + media), particularly during the later chase phase. Two-way ANOVA of the chase phase revealed that Pb exposure (30 microM) significantly suppressed the rate of secretion of [35S]TTR compared to the controls (p < 0.05). Accordingly, Pb treatment caused a retention of [35S]TTR by the cells. In a two-chamber transport system with a monolayer of epithelial barrier, Pb exposure (30 microM) reduced the initial release rate constant (kr) of [125I]T4 from the cell monolayer to the culture media and impeded the transepithelial transport of [125I]T4 from the basal to apical side of epithelial cells by 27%. Taken together, these in vitro data suggest that sequestration of Pb in the choroid plexus hinders the production and secretion of TTR by this tissue. Consequently, this may alter the transport of thyroxine across this blood-CSF barrier.  (+info)

Atm is dispensable for p53 apoptosis and tumor suppression triggered by cell cycle dysfunction. (2/601)

Both p53 and ATM are checkpoint regulators with roles in genetic stabilization and cancer susceptibility. ATM appears to function in the same DNA damage checkpoint pathway as p53. However, ATM's role in p53-dependent apoptosis and tumor suppression in response to cell cycle dysregulation is unknown. In this study, we tested the role of murine ataxia telangiectasia protein (Atm) in a transgenic mouse brain tumor model in which p53-mediated apoptosis results in tumor suppression. These p53-mediated activities are induced by tissue-specific inactivation of pRb family proteins by a truncated simian virus 40 large T antigen in brain epithelium. We show that p53-dependent apoptosis, transactivation, and tumor suppression are unaffected by Atm deficiency, suggesting that signaling in the DNA damage pathway is distinct from that in the oncogene-induced pathway. In addition, we show that Atm deficiency has no overall effect on tumor growth and progression in this model.  (+info)

Choroid plexus epithelial expression of MDR1 P glycoprotein and multidrug resistance-associated protein contribute to the blood-cerebrospinal-fluid drug-permeability barrier. (3/601)

The blood-brain barrier and a blood-cerebrospinal-fluid (CSF) barrier function together to isolate the brain from circulating drugs, toxins, and xenobiotics. The blood-CSF drug-permeability barrier is localized to the epithelium of the choroid plexus (CP). However, the molecular mechanisms regulating drug permeability across the CP epithelium are defined poorly. Herein, we describe a drug-permeability barrier in human and rodent CP mediated by epithelial-specific expression of the MDR1 (multidrug resistance) P glycoprotein (Pgp) and the multidrug resistance-associated protein (MRP). Noninvasive single-photon-emission computed tomography with 99mTc-sestamibi, a membrane-permeant radiopharmaceutical whose transport is mediated by both Pgp and MRP, shows a large blood-to-CSF concentration gradient across intact CP epithelium in humans in vivo. In rats, pharmacokinetic analysis with 99mTc-sestamibi determined the concentration gradient to be greater than 100-fold. In membrane fractions of isolated native CP from rat, mouse, and human, the 170-kDa Pgp and 190-kDa MRP are identified readily. Furthermore, the murine proteins are absent in CP isolated from their respective mdr1a/1b(-/-) and mrp(-/-) gene knockout littermates. As determined by immunohistochemical and drug-transport analysis of native CP and polarized epithelial cell cultures derived from neonatal rat CP, Pgp localizes subapically, conferring an apical-to-basal transepithelial permeation barrier to radiolabeled drugs. Conversely, MRP localizes basolaterally, conferring an opposing basal-to-apical drug-permeation barrier. Together, these transporters may coordinate secretion and reabsorption of natural product substrates and therapeutic drugs, including chemotherapeutic agents, antipsychotics, and HIV protease inhibitors, into and out of the central nervous system.  (+info)

Organic cation transport in rat choroid plexus cells studied by fluorescence microscopy. (4/601)

Quinacrine uptake and distribution were studied in a primary culture of rat choroid plexus epithelial cells using conventional and confocal fluorescence microscopy and image analysis. Quinacrine rapidly accumulated in cells, with steady-state levels being achieved after 10-20 min. Uptake was reduced by other organic cations, e.g., tetraethylammonium (TEA), and by KCN. Quinacrine fluorescence was distributed in two cytoplasmic compartments, one diffuse and the other punctate. TEA efflux experiments indicated that more than one-half of intracellular organic cation was in a slowly emptying compartment. The protonophore monensin both emptied that TEA compartment and abolished punctate quinacrine fluorescence, suggesting that a large fraction of total intracellular organic cation was sequestered in acidic vesicles, e.g., endosomes. Finally, quinacrine-loaded vesicles were seen to move within the cytoplasm and to abruptly release their contents at the blood side of the cell; the rate of release was greatly reduced by the microtubule disrupter nocodazole.  (+info)

Choline uptake across the ventricular membrane of neonate rat choroid plexus. (5/601)

The uptake of [3H]choline from the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) side of the rat neonatal choroid plexus was characterized in primary cultures of the choroidal epithelium grown on solid supports. Cell-to-medium concentration ratios were approximately 5 at 1 min and as high as 70 at 30 min. Apical choline uptake was facilitated; the Km was approximately 50 microM. Several organic cations (e.g., hemicholinium-3 and N1-methylnicotinamide) inhibited uptake. The reduction or removal of external Na+ or the addition of 5 mM LiCl had no effect on uptake. However, increasing external K+ concentration from 3 to 30 mM depolarized ventricular membrane potential (-70 to -15 mV) and reduced uptake to 45% of that for the control. Treatment with 1 mM ouabain or 2 mM BaCl2 reduced uptake 45%, and intracellular acidification reduced uptake to approximately 90% of that for controls. These data indicate that the uptake of choline from CSF across the ventricular membrane of the neonatal choroidal epithelium is not directly coupled to Na+ influx but is sensitive to plasma membrane electrical potential.  (+info)

Transepithelial transport of organic anions across the choroid plexus: possible involvement of organic anion transporter and multidrug resistance-associated protein. (6/601)

Transport characteristics of 17beta-estradiol 17beta-D-glucuronide (E217betaG), a dual substrate of the transporters for cellular uptake (organic anion-transporting polypeptide 1 or oatp1) and cellular excretion (multidrug resistance-associated protein 1or MRP1), in the rat choroid plexus were studied in vivo and in vitro. The uptake of E217betaG into isolated choroid plexus was mediated by an energy-dependent system with a Km of 3.4 microM. Together with the previous finding that oatp1 is localized on the apical membrane of choroid plexus, these results suggest that oatp1 is responsible for the uptake of this ligand. After intracerebroventricular administration, elimination of E217betaG from cerebrospinal fluid was probenecid sensitive and much more rapid than that of inulin; less than 2% of the administered E217betaG and 40 to 50% of inulin remained in the cerebrospinal fluid 20 min after intracerebroventricular administration. In addition, the amount of E217betaG associated with choroid plexus at 20 min was negligible, suggesting the presence of an efficient excretion system on the basolateral membrane of choroid plexus. Expression of MRP1 was detected in choroid plexus. Semiquantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and Western blot analyses indicated that the expression level of MRP1 in choroid plexus is about four or five times higher than that in the lung, one of the tissues exhibiting high expression of MRP1. Together with the in vivo vectorial transport of E217betaG, these results can be accounted for by assuming that there is basolateral localization of MRP1 in choroid plexus. Combined, oatp1 and MRP1 may synergistically mediate the efficient transcellular transport of E217betaG across choroid plexus.  (+info)

Development of a polyclonal antibody with broad epitope specificity for advanced glycation endproducts and localization of these epitopes in Bruch's membrane of the aging eye. (7/601)

PURPOSE: To develop an antibody that recognizes a variety of advanced glycation endproduct (AGE) epitopes. METHODS: Glycolaldehyde was used to modify bovine serum albumin and HPLC analysis was used to measure pentosidine formation as an indicator of AGE formation. A polyclonal anti-AGE antibody was synthesized by injecting glycolaldehyde-incubated keyhole limpet hemocyanin into rabbits, affinity purified using AGE modified bovine serum albumin coupled to an affinity resin column, and characterized by immunoblot analysis. RESULTS: HPLC analysis of glycolaldehyde treated bovine serum albumin detected high levels of pentosidine formation, suggesting that glycolaldehyde is a potent precursor for pentosidine. By immunoblot analysis, our antibody recognized carboxymethyllysine and pentosidine, two well-characterized AGEs, as well as other AGE epitopes. Immunohistochemical evaluation showed evidence of AGEs in Bruch's membrane (including basal laminar deposits and drusen), choroidal extracellular matrix, and vessel walls in an 82 year old nondiabetic globe. A similar staining pattern was observed in an age-matched diabetic control. In contrast, no staining was seen with the antibody in a 20 month old nondiabetic globe. CONCLUSIONS: A unique anti-AGE antibody was synthesized that recognizes a variety of AGE epitopes including carboxymethyllysine and pentosidine. Its best use might be in broad surveys of the age-dependent accumulation of a large number of AGE epitopes that might not be revealed by antibodies to pentosidine or CML.  (+info)

Gli3 is required for Emx gene expression during dorsal telencephalon development. (8/601)

Dentate gyrus and hippocampus as centers for spatial learning, memory and emotional behaviour have been the focus of much interest in recent years. The molecular information on its development, however, has been relatively poor. To date, only Emx genes were known to be required for dorsal telencephalon development. Here, we report on forebrain development in the extra toes (Xt(J)) mouse mutant which carries a null mutation of the Gli3 gene. This defect leads to a failure to establish the dorsal di-telencephalic junction and finally results in a severe size reduction of the neocortex. In addition, Xt(J)/Xt(J) mice show absence of the hippocampus (Ammon's horn plus dentate gyrus) and the choroid plexus in the lateral ventricle. The medial wall of the telencephalon, which gives rise to these structures, fails to invaginate during embryonic development. On a molecular level, disruption of dorsal telencephalon development in Xt(J)/Xt(J) embryos correlates with a loss of Emx1 and Emx2 expression. Furthermore, the expression of Fgf8 and Bmp4 in the dorsal midline of the telencephalon is altered. However, expression of Shh, which is negatively regulated by Gli3 in the spinal cord, is not affected in the Xt(J)/Xt(J) forebrain. This study therefore implicates Gli3 as a key regulator for the development of the dorsal telencephalon and implies Gli3 to be upstream of Emx genes in a genetic cascade controlling dorsal telencephalic development.  (+info)

Genetic disruption of slc4a10, which encodes the sodium-dependent chloride/bicarbonate exchanger Ncbe, leads to a major decrease in Na+-dependent HCO3− import into choroid plexus epithelial cells in mice and to a marked reduction in brain intraventricular fluid volume. This suggests that Ncbe functionally is a key element in vectorial Na+ transport and thereby for cerebrospinal fluid secretion in the choroid plexus. However, slc4a10 disruption results in severe changes in expression of Na+,K+-ATPase complexes and other major transport proteins, indicating that profound cellular changes accompany the genetic manipulation. A tandem mass tag labeling strategy was chosen for quantitative mass spectrometry. Alterations in the broader patterns of protein expression in the choroid plexus in response to genetic disruption of Ncbe was validated by semi-quantitative immunoblotting, immunohistochemistry and morphometry. The abundance of 601 proteins were found significantly altered in the choroid plexus from
Choroid plexus cysts (CPCs) are cysts that occur within choroid plexus of the brain. The brain contains pockets or spaces called ventricles with a spongy layer of cells and blood vessels called the choroid plexus. This is in the middle of the fetal brain. The choroid plexus has the important function of producing cerebrospinal fluid. The fluid produced by the cells of the choroid plexus fills the ventricles and then flows around the brain and the spinal cord to provide a cushion of fluid around these structures. CPCs can form within this structure and come from fluid trapped within this spongy layer of cells, much like a soap bubble or a blister. CPCs are often called soft signs or fetal ultrasound markers because some studies have found a weak association between CPCs and fetal chromosome abnormalities. It is believed that many adults have one or more tiny CPCs. The fetal brain may create these cysts as a normal part of development. They are temporary and usually are gone by the 32nd week ...
Fenestrated blood vessels in the rat choroid plexus are permeable to dye-labelled proteins, HRP and ferritin. Most leakage appears to be via fenestrae but some additional escape of marker appears to take place through transient and reversible openings in the junctions between endothelial cells. After they have escaped into the choroidal stroma markers are prevented from entering the CSF by tight junctions between the epithelial cells which cover the choroid plexus, but how they are removed from the extravascular space is not known. Electron microscope study of rats who have been given multiple intravenous injections of ferritin shows that extravascular ferritin is take up both by connective tissue cells in the choroidal stroma and by choroidal epithelial cells. The findings suggest that the ingested protein is subsequently broken down within lysosomal vacuoles in the cytoplasm of these cells. Such intracellular digestion may be the major means of controlling the protein content of the extravascular
ABSTRACT. High blood pressure produces ventricular dilation, variations in circumventricular organs and changes in the cerebrospinal fluid compositions. On the other hand, chronic hypertension in spontaneously hypertensive rats can cause changes in the integrity of the brain barriers: blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier and blood brain barrier. The permeability of the brain barriers can be studied by using transthyretin and S-100β. In the present work we study the integrity of the brain barrier and the choroid plexus function variations in arterial hypertension. Control rats and spontaneously hypertensive rats were used and the choroid plexus were processed by immunohistochemistry with anti-transthyretin and anti-vasopressin. Western blot was also performed in cerebrospinal fluid, serum and choroid plexus using anti-S-100β, antitransthyretin. The accumulation of transthyretin immunoreactive was bigger in spontaneously hypertensive rats with respect to the control. Vasopressin was also higher in ...
As the secretory source of vitamins, peptides and hormones for neurons, the choroid plexus (CP) epithelium critically provides substances for brain homeostasis. This distributive process of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) volume transmission reaches many cellular targets in the CNS. In ageing and ageing-related dementias, the CP-CSF system is less able to regulate brain interstitial fluid. CP primarily generates CSF bulk flow, and so its malfunctioning exacerbates Alzheimers disease (AD). Considerable attention has been devoted to the blood-brain barrier in AD, but more insight is needed on regulatory systems at the human blood-CSF barrier in order to improve epithelial function in severe disease. Using autopsied CP specimens from AD patients, we immunocytochemically examined expression of heat shock proteins (HSP90 and GRP94), fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFr) and a fluid-regulatory protein (NaK2Cl cotransporter isoform 1 or NKCC1). CP upregulated HSP90, FGFr and NKCC1, even in end-stage AD. These CP

Choroid plexus cyst. Ultrasound scan of a foetus brain with a choroid plexus cyst (CPC). The choroid plexus is a layer of cells and blood vessels at the centre of the foetal brain. It produces a fluid, called cerebrospinal fluid, that flows around the brain and provides a protective cushion for it against impacts. CPCs in foetuses are temporary bubbles of trapped fluid that are usually gone by the 32nd week of pregnancy. They are classed as markers for underlying chromosome abnormalities in the foetus. Ultrasound scanning is a diagnostic technique that sends high-frequency sound waves into the body via a transducer. The returning echoes are recorded and used to build an image of an internal structure. - Stock Image M130/1007
Choroid plexus blood flow was measured in adult female sheep using the radioactive microsphere technique. The response of choroid plexus, renal and cortical blood flow to the infusion of dopamine (11 sheep), haloperidol (7 sheep) and propranolol (6 sheep) were compared. Choroid plexus and renal blood flow significantly increased after dopamine infusion (55% and 49% respectively). Choroid plexus and renal blood flow decreased significantly following haloperidol infusion (-24% and 29% respectively). Cortical blood flow did not significantly change. Propranolol infusion did not significantly change blood flow in these regions. These observations suggest that dopaminergic mechanisms play a role in the regulation of choroid plexus as well as renal blood flow.

Hydrocephalus, despite its heterogeneous causes, is ultimately a disease of disordered CSF homeostasis that results in pathological expansion of the cerebral ventricles. Our current understanding of the pathophysiology of hydrocephalus is inadequate but evolving. Over this past century, the majority of hydrocephalus cases has been explained by functional or anatomical obstructions to bulk CSF flow. More recently, hydrodynamic models of hydrocephalus have emphasized the role of abnormal intracranial pulsations in disease pathogenesis. Here, the authors review the molecular mechanisms of CSF secretion by the choroid plexus epithelium, the most efficient and actively secreting epithelium in the human body, and provide experimental and clinical evidence for the role of increased CSF production in hydrocephalus. Although the choroid plexus epithelium might have only an indirect influence on the pathogenesis of many types of pediatric hydrocephalus, the ability to modify CSF secretion with drugs newer ...
Chronic systemic inflammation triggers alterations in the central nervous system that may relate to the underlying inflammatory component reported in neurodegenerative disorders such as multiple sclerosis and Alzheimers disease. However, it is far from being understood whether and how peripheral inflammation contributes to induce brain inflammatory response in such illnesses. As part of the barriers that separate the blood from the brain, the choroid plexus conveys inflammatory immune signals into the brain, largely through alterations in the composition of the cerebrospinal fluid. In the present study we investigated the mouse choroid plexus gene expression profile, using microarray analyses, in response to a repeated inflammatory stimulus induced by the intraperitoneal administration of lipopolysaccharide every two weeks for a period of three months; mice were sacrificed 3 and 15 days after the last lipopolysaccharide injection. The data show that the choroid plexus displays a sustained response to
The roof plate is a specialized embryonic midline tissue of the central nervous system that functions as a signaling center regulating dorsal neural patterning. In the developing hindbrain, roof plate cells express Gdf7 and previous genetic fate mapping studies showed that these cells contribute mostly to non-neural choroid plexus epithelium. We demonstrate here that constitutive activation of the Sonic hedgehog signaling pathway in the Gdf7 lineage invariably leads to medulloblastoma. Lineage tracing analysis reveals that Gdf7-lineage cells not only are a source of choroid plexus epithelial cells, but are also present in the cerebellar rhombic lip and contribute to a subset of cerebellar granule neuron precursors, the presumed cell-of-origin for Sonic hedgehog-driven medulloblastoma. We further show that Gdf7-lineage cells also contribute to multiple neuronal and glial cell types in the cerebellum, including glutamatergic granule neurons, unipolar brush cells, Purkinje neurons, GABAergic interneurons,

The expression of the export proteins p-glycoprotein (Pgp, Abcb1) multidrug resistance protein1 (Mrp1, Abcc1) and Mrp4 (Abcc4) was studied by RT-PCR, Western-blot and immunofluorescence techniques and their functional activity was assessed by transport and uptake experiments.. Choroid plexus epithelial cells were isolated in high purity and grown to form confluent monolayers. Filter-grown monolayers displayed transendothelial resistance (TEER) values in the range of 100 to 150 Ohm x cm2. Morphologically, the cells showed the typical net work of f-actin and ...

The involvement of circulating insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) in the beneficial effects of physical exercise on the brain makes this abundant serum growth factor a physiologically relevant neuroprotective signal. However, the mechanisms underlying neuroprotection by serum IGF-I remain primarily unknown. Among many other neuroprotective actions, IGF-I enhances clearance of brain amyloid β (Aβ) by modulating transport/production of Aβ carriers at the blood-brain interface in the choroid plexus. We found that physical exercise increases the levels of the choroid plexus endocytic receptor megalin/low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein-2 (LRP2), a multicargo transporter known to participate in brain uptake of Aβ carriers. By manipulating choroid plexus megalin levels through viral-directed overexpression and RNA interference, we observed that megalin mediates IGF-I-induced clearance of Aβ and is involved in IGF-I transport into the brain. Through this dual role, megalin ...

Background The choroid plexuses will be the interface between the blood and the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) contained within the ventricular spaces of the central nervous system. are indicated early during development. Overall perinatal manifestation levels of genes involved in drug rate of metabolism and antioxidant mechanisms are similar to, or higher than levels measured in adults. A similar developmental pattern was observed for multispecific efflux transporter genes of the and superfamilies. Manifestation of all these genes was Trifolirhizin more variable in choroid plexus from fifteen-day-old embryos. A large panel of transcription factors involved in the xenobiotic- or cell stress-mediated induction of detoxifying enzymes and transporters is also expressed throughout development. Conclusions This transcriptomic analysis suggests relatively wellCestablished neuroprotective mechanisms in the blood-CSF barrier throughout development of the rat. The manifestation of many transcription factors ...
Identifying the cellular origins of medulloblastoma - the most common malignant brain tumor in children - may help focus treatment on cell types responsible for tumor initiation. Previous research has linked Sonic hedgehog signaling in neuronal cell precursors within the developing cerebellum to medulloblastoma.. Now, Chin Chiang, Ph.D., and colleagues demonstrate that turning on Sonic hedgehog signaling in a different cell type - hindbrain roof plate cells - leads to medulloblastoma. The roof plate cells are a specialized tissue that function as a signaling center regulating neural patterning. Previous studies had suggested that the hindbrain roof plate was restricted in its potential and contributed only to non-neural choroid plexus epithelial cells.. The new studies, reported in April in PLoS ONE, demonstrate that the hindbrain roof plate contributes not only to choroid plexus but also to multiple neuronal and glial cell types in the cerebellum. The findings also show that hindbrain roof ...

Recent years have seen a rapid increase in the use of wireless telephones, yet little systematic data exist on the actual use of such devices in the general population. Mobile and cordless telephones emit radiofrequency fields (RF) raising concern about possible adverse health effects. As children and teenagers might be more vulnerable and have longer expected lifetime exposures to RF from these devices than adults, who started to use them later in life, they are a group of special concern. The aims of papers I and II in this thesis were to increase our knowledge of use of wireless telephones in the age group of 7-19 years, to study what factors could explain such use; and furthermore, whether the use among the 15-19 year group was associated with self-reported health symptoms and well-being. For collection of data a posted questionnaire was used. Among the 7-14 group (n=1423) nearly all had access to a mobile telephone, a cordless telephone or both, although the percentage of regular users was ...
In this study, researches from Biozentrum, University of Basel found that the choroid plexus produces signals that regulate adult neural stem cells. Within the brain, these neural cells give rise to neurons throughout life. They also provide key signals that regulate cell self-renewal and differentiation. Within the findings, researchers identified that the choroid plexus secretes a wide variety of signaling factors in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which are important for stem cell regulation. Furthermore, they found that although stem cells are present throughout aging, the signals they receive from the choroid plexus changes making them divide less. One reason is that signals in the old choroid plexus are different. As a consequence, stem cells receive different messages and are less capable to form new neurons during aging. In other words, compromising the fitness of stem cells in this brain region, explains Violeta Sliva Vargas, the first author of the study. To read more, click ...

Carrier-mediated transepithelial absorption of both endogenous and xenobiotic organic cations and bases, including choline, NMN, hexamethonium and cimetidine, from CSF has been demonstrated experimentally (Lanman and Schanker, 1980; Miller and Ross, 1976; Schanker et al., 1962; Suzuki et al., 1985). Similarly, these and several other organic cations, including TEA, serotonin and norepinephrine, are accumulated by isolated choroid plexus in vitro (Bárány, 1976; Hug, 1967; Miller and Ross, 1976; Suzuki et al., 1986; Tochino and Schanker, 1965b). However, the membrane transport mechanisms involved in accumulation and transepithelial absorption of organic cations by the plexus epithelium are still poorly understood. General aspects of organic cation transport across the apical membrane were examined in plexus epithelial cells grown on solid support. Cultured cells accumulated the model organic cation TEA in a time-dependent manner (fig. 5B). TePA, a high-affinity substrate for both basolateral and ...
Our group focuses on the pathogenesis of infectious diseases including meningitis caused in the central nervous system (CNS) by bacterial pathogens. Previously, we have studied the transcriptional response of host cells to infection with Listeria monocytogenes using in vitro models of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and the blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier (BCSFB) located at the choroid plexus (CP). Still, the cellular molecular machineries and signalling pathways involved are only incompletely understood. The aim of this project is to increase knowledge about the mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions, which participate during meningitis caused by Listeria monocytogenes. We plan to employ in vitro and in vivo models to study the importance of cellular signalling pathways for invasion and transmigration of bacteria as well as for host cell ...

Researchers have discovered that the choroid plexus, a largely ignored structure in the brain that produces the cerebrospinal fluid, is an important regulator of adult neural stem cells. The study also shows that signals secreted by the choroid plexus dynamically change during aging which affects aged stem cell behavior. Stem cells are non-specialized cells found in different organs. They have the capacity to generate specialized cells in the body. In the adult brain, neural stem cells give rise to neurons throughout life. The stem cells reside in unique micro-environments, so-called niches which provide key signals that regulate stem cell self-renewal and differentiation. Stem cells in the adult brain contact the ventricles, cavities filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that bathes and protects the brain. The research team has now shown that the choroid plexus is a key component of the stem cell niche, whose properties change throughout life and affect stem cell behavior. The researchers ...

To determine whether increased expression of RALDH2 in recovering choroids resulted in increased retinoic acid synthesis, atRA was measured in organ cultures of choroids during the period in which RALDH2 expression was increasing, using an ultrasensitive procedure making use of LC/MS/MS quantification (Fig. 8A). Choroids (8-mm punches) isolated from control and treated eyes after recovery periods ranging from 3 hours to 15 days were incubated in N2 culture medium (80 μL) for 3 hours, and total atRA was measured in medium together with the choroid punch. Control samples contained on average 0.33 to 0.60 pmol atRA, corresponding to concentrations of approximately 4 × 10−9 to 7 × 10−9 M in organ cultures. After 6 hours of recovery, atRA concentrations began to increase in treated eyes. The large SE is due to one choroid from a recovering eye that synthesized nearly fourfold more RA than the other samples. RA concentration was significantly higher in cultures of choroids from 24-hour ...
When we talked to my OB about the ultrasound results, we were told that our baby had bilateral choroid plexus cysts (CPCs). Something new that Id never heard about; something new to cause fears and worry. The choroid plexus is part of the brain where cerebrospinal fluid is created. The doctor told us that these usually resolve on their own, that he isnt too worried, and he assured us that there were no other abnormalities. Of course, I had to do my own research. CPCs are fairly common and seen in about 1% of ultrasounds. They can be a soft marker for Trisomy 18 and sometimes Downs Syndrome, and chances increase when other indicators are present. It started to make more sense to me that they spent a lot more time looking at his brain and his heart, and that they really want to get a picture of him with his hand open..

There is a double peak on the Laurell rockets (electroimmunodiffusion) which also demonstrates prealbumins heterogeneous nature. The net charge is also more acidic in CSF than in serum [621]. However, these differences may reflect the higher relative amounts of prealbumin to albumin in CSF than in serum [265]. Transferrin loses sialic acid to become tau protein.

Choroid plexus carcinoma or choroid plexus tumor is a type of cancerous tumor that occurs in the brains choroid plexus tissue and most often occurs in children. The choroid plexus tissue lines the ventricles of the brain and produces cerebrospinal fluid or CSF. CSF circulates around the brain and spinal cord providing cushioning and protection. Because these tumors arise from the tissue involved in the making of CSF, the tumors can spread widely through this fluid. Symptoms of choroid plexus carcinoma are similar to those of other brain tumors including frequent headaches, unusually large head due to excess fluid on the brain, or large soft spots found on the babys head. Other symptoms may include a decrease or loss of appetite and vomiting. The cause behind these tumors is largely unknown.. Treatment is usually surgical removal of the tumor and if removed completely, may be the only treatment necessary. If the recurs, a second surgery along with radiation and/or chemotherapy may be needed. ...

This is the first reported case of ectopic choroid plexus at the cerebellopontine angle in an adult. We present the case and review the literature.
Title: ABC Transporters and the Blood-Brain Barrier. VOLUME: 10 ISSUE: 12. Author(s):David J. Begley. Affiliation:Centre for Neuroscience Research, Kings College London, Hodgkin Building, Guys Campus, London SE1 1UL,UK.. Keywords:abc transporters, blood-brain barrier, blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier. Abstract: The blood-brain barrier (BBB) and the blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier (BCSFB) form a very effective barrier to the free diffusion of many polar solutes into the brain. Many metabolites that are polar have their brain entry facilitated by specific inwardly-directed transport mechanisms. In general the more lipid soluble a molecule or drug is, the more readily it will tend to partition into brain tissue. However, a very significant number of lipid soluble molecules, among them many useful therapeutic drugs have lower brain permeability than would be predicted from a determination of their lipid solubility. These molecules are substrates for the ABC efflux transporters which are present ...
Intracranial xanthogranulomas are somewhat rare, benign lesions and occur most commonly as choroid plexus xanthogranulomas. The exact etiology is uncertain.(1). The first reported case of xanthogranuloma of the choroid plexus was reported by Blummer in 1900, under the diagnosis of Cholestomatous endothelioma (2). Most xanthogranulomas of the choroid plexus arise in the lateral ventricular choroid plexus. (3) They are usually asymptomatic incidental findings, found in 2-7% of postmortem examinations (2). The xanthomatous reaction usually involves the stroma of the choroid plexus, and to a lesser extent, the epithelium (4). Like other xanthogranulomas, these choroid plexus xanthogranulomas are composed of xanthoma cells, cholesterol clefts, giant cells, hemosiderin, fibrosis, and occasional calcium deposits (3,4 ...
Choroid plexus carcinoma mouse model. TgT121;p53+/− mice develop focally aggressive angiogenic CPC that is histologically detectable by 8 weeks and terminal by 12 weeks of age ( 7, 22). Often, a single animal develops multiple focal tumors. Tumors are initiated by choroid plexus-specific expression of T121, an NH2-terminal fragment of SV40 large T antigen that binds and inactivates the tumor suppressor pRb and related proteins p107 and p130 ( 22). T121 induces cell proliferation and p53-dependent apoptosis throughout the choroid plexus epithelium such that heterozygosity for a p53 null allele facilitates multifocal tumor progression to CPC with complete p53 loss. Histologic analyses show that the timing and penetrance of tumor development is highly reproducible ( 6). CPC tumors are heavily vascular lesions and thus provide an ideal tumor type in which to study the effect of antiangiogenic agents in experimental animals.. A total of 20 mice were studied, including 11 TgT121;p53+/− mice and ...
One recent report described a series of papillary tumors that were initially diagnosed as choroid plexus papilloma, papillary ependymoma, or papillary pineal parenchymal tumor and were subsequently reclassified as a primary PTPR after re-examination and immunohistochemical staining.4 Therefore, it is likely that other previous reports of unusual posterior third ventricle choroid plexus papillomas, papillary pineal parenchymal tumors, or papillary ependymomas of the pineal region may actually represent early examples of a PTPR.. The proper differentiation of papillary tumors has management implications because treatment response of PTPRs is less well documented than other tumors in the pineal region. An understanding of the biologic behavior of a PTPR is evolving as more cases are documented, and local recurrence of a PTPR has been described.4,7,10. With regard to a possible explanation of imaging characteristics of a PTPR, electron microscopic findings support a secretory function of the PTPR ...
Intrathecal methotrexate (MTX) has been associated with severe neurotoxicity. Because carrier-associated removal of MTX from the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) into blood remains undefined, we determined the expression and function of MTX transporters in rat choroid plexus (CP). MTX neurotoxicity usually manifests as seizures requiring therapy with antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) such as phenobarbital (PB). Because we have demonstrated that PB reduces activity of MTX influx carrier reduced folate carrier (Rfc1) in liver, we investigated the influence of the AEDs PB, carbamazepine (CBZ), or gabapentin on Rfc1-mediated MTX transport in CP. Reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction and Western blot analysis showed similar expression of the MTX influx carrier Rfc1 and organic anion transporter 3 or efflux transporter multidrug resistance-associated protein 1 (Mrp1) and breast cancer resistance protein (Bcrp) in rat CP tissue and choroidal epithelial Z310 cells. Confocal microscopy revealed subcellular ...
Recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging have made it possible to visualize and quantify flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain. The net flow of CSF through the cerebral aqueduct was used to measure CSF production in six normal volunteers at different times during a 24-h period. CSF production varied greatly both intra- and interindividually. The average CSF production in each time interval showed a clear tendency to circadian variation, with a minimum production 30% of maximum values (12 +/- 7 ml/h) approximately 1800 h and a nightly peak production approximately 0200 h of 42 +/- 2 ml/h. The total CSF production during the whole 24-h period, calculated as an average of all measurements, was 650 ml for the whole group and 630 ml for repeated measurements in each time interval in one of the volunteers ...
The brain produces roughly 500 mL of cerebrospinal fluid per day,[2] at a rate of about 25 mL an hour.[1] This transcellular fluid is constantly reabsorbed, so that only 125-150 mL is present at any one time.[1]. CSF volume is higher on a mL/kg basis in children compared to adults. Infants have a CSF volume of 4 mL/kg, children have a CSF volume of 3 mL/kg, and adults have a CSF volume of 1.5-2 mL/kg. A high CSF volume is why a larger dose of local anesthetic, on a mL/kg basis, is needed in infants. Additionally, the larger CSF volume may be one reason as to why children have lower rates of postdural puncture headache.[17]. Most (about two-thirds to 80%) of CSF is produced by the choroid plexus.[1][2] The choroid plexus is a network of blood vessels present within sections of the four ventricles of the brain. It is present throughout the ventricular system except for the cerebral aqueduct, and the frontal and occipital horns of the lateral ventricles.[18] CSF is also produced by the single layer ...
0105]In vitro biological activity of choroid plexus was determined by placing CP-conditioned media onto primary day 15 embryonic cortical neurons and measuring its effects on neuronal survival under serum deprivation conditions. The techniques used for preparing and maintaining primary cortical neuronal cultures were similar to those described previously (Fukuda A, Deshpande S B, Shimano Y, Nishino H. Astrocytes are more vulnerable than neurons to cellular Ca2+ overload induced by a mitochondrial toxin, 3-nitropropionic acid. Neuroscience. 87:497-507, 1998.). Brains were removed from Wistar rats on embryonic day 15 and incubated in HBSS chilled on ice. The cortical tissues were dissected free, chopped into small pieces and incubated with Ca2+-free Hanks solution containing trypsin (0.05 mg/ml) and collagenase (0.01 mg/ml) at 37° C. for 30 minutes, followed by the addition of soybean trypsin inhibitor (0.1 mg/ml) and DNase (0.1 mg/ml). The tissue was then centrifuged for 5 minutes (1000 rpm) ...
Choroid plexus carcinomas (CPCs) are rare, aggressive pediatric brain tumors with no established curative therapy for relapsed disease, and poor survival rates. TP53 Mutation or dysfunction correlates with poor or no survival outcome in CPCs. Here, we report the case of a 4 month-old female who presented with disseminated CPC. After initial response to tumor resection and adjuvant-chemotherapy, the tumor recurred and metastasized with no response to aggressive relapse therapy suggesting genetic predisposition. This patient was then enrolled to a Molecular Guided Therapy Clinical Trial. Genomic profiling of patient tumor and normal sample identified a TP53 germline mutation with loss of heterozygosity, somatic mutations including IDH2, and aberrant activation of biological pathways. The mutations were not targetable for therapy. However, targeting the altered biological pathways (mTOR, PDGFRB, FGF2, HDAC) guided identification of possibly beneficial treatment with a combination of sirolimus, thalidomide,
A comprehensive in vivo evaluation of brain penetrability and central nervous system (CNS) pharmacokinetics of atomoxetine in rats was conducted using brain microdialysis. We sought to determine the nature and extent of transport at the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier (BCB) and to characterize brain extracellular and cellular disposition. The steady-state extracellular fluid (ECF) to plasma unbound (uP) concentration ratio (CECF/CuP = 0.7) and the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to plasma unbound concentration ratio (CCSF/CuP = 1.7) were both near unity, indicating that atomoxetine transport across the BBB and BCB is primarily passive. On the basis of the ratios of whole brain concentration to CECF (CB/CECF = 170), brain cell (BC) concentration to CECF (CBC/CECF = 219), and unbound brain cell concentration to CECF (CuBC/CECF = 2.9), we conclude that whole brain concentration does not represent the concentration in the biophase and atomoxetine primarily partitions into ...

The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is produced from arterial blood by the choroid plexuses of the lateral and fourth ventricles by a combined process of diffusion, pinocytosis and active transfer. A small amount is also produced by ependymal cells. The choroid plexus consists of tufts of capillaries with thin fenestrated endothelial cells. These are covered by modified ependymal cells with bulbous microvilli. The total volume of CSF in the adult ranges from140 to 270 ml. The volume of the ventricles is about 25 ml. CSF is produced at a rate of 0.2 - 0.7 ml per minute or 600-700 ml per day. The circulation of CSF is aided by the pulsations of the choroid plexus and by the motion of the cilia of ependymal cells. CSF is absorbed across the arachnoid villi into the venous circulation and a significant amount probably also drains into lymphatic vessels around the cranial cavity and spinal canal. The arachnoid villi act as one-way valves between the subarachnoid space and the dural sinuses. The rate of ...
A previous study suggested that occlusive diseases of small penetrating arteries account for most anterior choroidal artery (AChA) territory infarcts, but half of the patients did not have an echocardiogram. Cases of AChA territory infarcts associated with internal carotid artery stenosis or atrial fibrillation suggest that this hypothesis may be wrong. The aim of this study was to determine the mechanism of 16 nonselected consecutive AChA territory infarcts.. The study population consisted of 8 men and 8 women aged 17 to 89 years. They underwent a computed tomographic scan at the acute stage, Doppler ultrasonography and B-mode echotomography of the cervical arteries, bidimensional transthoracic echocardiography, and cerebral magnetic resonance imaging, replaced by a second computed tomographic scan in 3 patients. Ten patients underwent cerebral angiography. We defined the presumed cause of stroke according to the criteria used in the trial of Org 10172 in acute stroke treatment.. The presumed ...

Purpose : Patients with atrophic AMD display photoreceptor loss secondary to RPE dysfunction and choroidal damage. However, the exact etiology of AMD remains unknown due to lack of information on RPE/choroid cell diversity and intercellular crosstalk mechanisms. Here we report the selective high expression of Indian Hedgehog (Ihh) in adult choroid endothelial cells (ECs) and its function as an angio- and immunomodulatory choroid signaling molecule likely relevant to AMD. Methods : Cells from tissue of wildtype RPE/choroid were single-cell sorted and scRNAseq was performed. Bulk RNAseq was used to compare the transcriptomes of purified RPE/choroid from wildtype and mutant mice after laser-induced CNV. To study crosstalk between EC-derived Ihh and stromal, Gli1+ perivascular cells, adult tamoxifen-induced knockout mice were generated by crossing Ihhflox/flox with Cdh5-Ert2Cre+ transgenic mice, and cDNA of eGFP was inserted into exon 1 of mouse Gli1 gene to generate Gli1+/eGFP knock-in animals. ...
When drugs exert their effects in the brain, linear extrapolation of doses from adults could be harmful for children as the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and blood-CSF barrier (BCSFB) function is still immature. More specifically, age-related variation in membrane transporters may impact brain disposition. As human data on brain transporter expression is scarce, age dependent [gestational age (GA), postnatal age (PNA), and postmenstrual age (PMA)] variation in immunohistochemical localization and staining intensity of the ABC transporters P-glycoprotein (Pgp), breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP), and multidrug resistance-associated proteins 1, 2, 4, and 5 (MRP1/2/4/5) was investigated. Post mortem brain cortical and ventricular tissue was derived from 23 fetuses (GA range 12.9-39 weeks), 17 neonates (GA range 24.6-41.3 weeks, PNA range 0.004-3.5 weeks), 8 children (PNA range 0.1-3 years), and 4 adults who died from a wide variety of underlying conditions. In brain cortical BBB, immunostaining ...
Background Circumventricular organs (CVO) are cerebral areas with imperfect endothelial blood-brain barrier (BBB) and for that reason thought to be gates to the mind. program. Subsequently, the cells distribution of fluorescence-labeled Gf aswell as the degree of cellular swelling was evaluated in related histological slices. Results We could show that the Gf signal intensity of the choroid plexus, the subfornicular organ and the area postrema increased significantly during experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, correlating with (1) disease severity and (2) the delay Dapagliflozin small molecule kinase inhibitor of disease onset after immunization. For the choroid plexus, the extent of Gf enhancement served as a diagnostic criterion to distinguish between diseased and healthy control mice with a sensitivity of 89% and a specificity of 80%. Furthermore, Gf improved the detection of lesions, being particularly sensitive to optic neuritis. In correlated histological slices, Gf initially ...
Treatment of hydrocephalus depends on its cause. Medications are used to slow the rate of cerebrospinal fluid production temporarily.
Example of such cancers include, zantac 75 liquid but are not limited to leukemia, colon/rectal cancer, myeloid leukemia, breast cancer, gastric carcinomas, acute leukemia, multiple myeloma, myeloid cell leukemia, lung cancer, prostate cancer, etc?

On MRI, they do not strictly follow the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) signal intensity. They are slightly hyperintense to CSF on T1 weighted images, hyperintense on T2 weighted and show variable signal intensity on FLAIR images. On diffusion-weighted images, choroid plexus cysts show high signal intensity but are isointense on corresponding ADC images, likely representing pseudorestriction 1 or T2 shine-through effect [3 ...
Our baby girl was so active that other than getting a glimpse of her four chambered heart, we didnt get to do all the measurements they want so Im going back in on Friday for another look. I will ask them to look for one other thing while Im there....I mentioned a prayer request on twitter this morning and it relates to something they saw in her brain. She has a choroid plexus cyst that Im praying fervently is GONE by the time I go back in on Friday. This could be nothing more than a blocked duct, but its also an indicator of Trisomy 18. I wish the doctor hadnt even mentioned that part since a cyst seen at this stage of brain development (18-20weeks) is typically gone soon after the 20 week mark and there were no other indicators for it, but it still worries me. Im measuring a little under 20 weeks so by the time my ultrasound on Friday morning it could still be there and still be considered normal. Obviously our hearts desire is for it to be GONE and for her heart to be normal as well. ...
Thought I would post a quick update so everyone would know how our situation was going. My wife is 21 1/2 weeks now so we went in for the anatomy scan today. Everything looked good, but they found a small small cyst, less than 1/3 of a millimeter, in the left side of Zacharys brain. They said they werent worried about it because these cysts are normal, but I cant help, but freak out a little bit. They said the rest of the scan was great for both babies and they would only be concerned with this cyst if Zac had other things going on, i.e. cysts in other areas as well, dark spots in other areas, etc. They said the only reason they told us is because they have to and I understand that from a liability stand point, but Im a little worried right now. Both babies weighed 1.1 pounds and both are right on track to be perfectly normal babies. Just wanted to see if anyone else had something like this come up in their scan? Its called a choroid plexus cyst, thanks ahead of time for the info ...
After a long wait we had the follow-up ultrasound today. Owen has been a very active boy for a while now which has helped us make it through the wait with much optimism. The ultrasound was at 1:30 and our whole clan was allowed into the ultrasound room. The clan being my mom and dad, Joshs mom and sister and of course Josh and I. As the ultrasound progressed every update was better than the last. First off the amniotic fluid level was right on (high amniotic fluid levels are common with trisomy 18 babies). His choroid plexus cysts had resolved, as well as the calcium deposit on his heart. They were just gone, they said there was a good chance they would resolve, but to see it live in person was nothing short of a miracle for us!!! And finally all of the measurements were done and he came in at 3 lbs. 1oz. and measured within one day of his due date, which we were informed never happens. The measurement was the most important thing to us. The geneticist in Little Rock had told us that babies ...
The ependyma is made up of ependymal cells. These are the epithelial cells that line the CSF-filled ventricles in the brain and the central canal of the spinal cord. The cells are cuboidal/columnar. Their apical surfaces are covered in a layer of cilia, which circulate CSF around the central nervous system. Their apical surfaces are also covered with microvilli, which absorb CSF. Within the brains ventricles, a population of modified ependymal cells and capillaries together form a system called the choroid plexus, which produces the CSF. ...
The cortex of the upper half of the insula has been scraped away to reveal the underlying medullary substance. The ependymal layer which covered the caudate nucleus has been removed. Much of the choroid plexus in the central part of the lateral ventricle has been cut away to expose its attachment to the lips (taeniae) of the choroidal fissure (cleft between fornix and lamina affixa). Note the choroidal artery (a branch of the a. cerebri posterior) passing anteriorly in this region ...
In order to interpret transport processes across the CP, appropriate models of investigation are required. In vivo techniques are complicated since they require surgical skill and it is difficult to monitor data. Common methods include the serial sampling of CSF after drug administration and deconvolution of data to determine transport profiles. Therefore, the development of adequate in vitro methods which allows the examination of drug transport from blood to CSF and vice versa is essential in order to reduce investigation in intact animals. In vivo studies allow only very limited insight into mechanistic aspects. Present data demonstrates that CP epithelium can be isolated and cultured, with cells growing into intact monolayers, fully differentiating and with properties resembling the tissue in vivo.. The present investigations in vitro provide the first data on Pgp and Mrp1 expression and activities without the use of animal experiments. An apical localization of Pgp in the CP trafficking ...

After filling the LATERAL VENTRICLES, the CSF escapes by the FORAMEN OF MONROE into the 3RD VENTRICLE and thence by the AQUEDUCT OF SILVIUS into the 4TH VENTRICLE. From the fourth ...
Background The ventricles. (Image courtesy of http://library.thinkquest.org/28457/csf.shtml) The brain normally produces cerebrospinal fluid daily via the choroid plexus (a network of vessels) situated over the ventricular system. There are two lateral ventricles, located on each of the brain hemisphere. The fluid from both lateral ventricles enters the 3rd ventricle, then passes through a narrowing, the aqueduct…
Various laboratories have reported differing success rates in their ability to detect intrathecal synthesis of antibody when comparing the index of [Formula: see text] with electrophoretic analysis. We selected 44 patients in the borderline area of minimal and/or equivocal abnormality by IgG index. Electrophoretic analysis (on polyacrylamide gels for oligoclonal gamma globulin pattern) of parallel specimens was performed at the same time. The number of samples giving a normal index but showing oligoclonal bands varied between 34% and 43% depending on the cut-off point. The views about normal barrier functions underlying such indices are discussed with particular reference to the pathophysiology of the blood-CSF barrier.. ...

When a virus does invade the CNS, there are several routes by which infection of neurons can occur. The most common entry point is from the blood, and the level of viremia as a result of virus replication in peripheral organs often correlates with the likelihood of CNS infection. However, the blood-brain barrier (BBB), composed of vascular endothelial cells with tight junctions in contact with the foot processes of astrocytes, inhibits direct access to the brain parenchyma and neurons. Some neurotropic viruses can replicate in cerebrovascular endothelial cells, enter with infected leukocytes, or cross directly into the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) through the porous capillaries of the choroid plexus. A specialized CNS entry pathway used by several viruses, most notably HSV, varicella zoster, and rabies viruses, is by way of nerve terminals in peripheral organs. These viruses can enter the nerve and then use neural transport mechanisms to transport the infecting virions to the neuronal cell body ...

AU - Fukaya, Masahiro. AU - Ohtsuki, Sumio. AU - Asashima, Tomoko. AU - Terasaki, Tetsuya. PY - 2005/10/1. Y1 - 2005/10/1. N2 - Using in situ hybridization for the mouse brain, we analyzed developmental changes in gene expression for the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter subfamilies ABCA1-4 and 7, and ABCG1, 2, 4, 5 and 8. In the embryonic brains, ABCA1 and A7 were highly expressed in the ventricular (or germinal) zone, whereas ABCA2, A3 and G4 were enriched in the mantle (or differentiating) zone. At the postnatal stages, ABCA1 was detected in both the gray and white matter and in the choroid plexus. On the other hand, ABCA2, A3 and A7 were distributed in the gray matter. In addition, marked up-regulation of ABCA2 occurred in the white matter at 14 days-of-age when various myelin protein genes are ...
To date, three closely-related TGF beta genes have been found in the mouse; TGF beta 1, TGF beta 2 and TGF beta 3. Previous experiments have indicated that TGF beta 1 and TGF beta 2 may play important roles during mouse embryogenesis. The present study now reports the distribution of transcripts of TGF beta 3 in comparison to the other two genes and reveals overlapping but distinct patterns of RNA expression. TGF beta 3 RNA is expressed in a diverse array of tissues including perichondrium, bone, intervertebral discs, mesenteries, pleura, heart, lung, palate, and amnion, as well as in central nervous system (CNS) structures such as the meninges, choroid plexus and the olfactory bulbs. Furthermore, in several organ systems, TGF beta 3 transcripts are expressed during periods of active morphogenesis suggesting that the protein may be an important factor for the growth and differentiation of many embryonic tissues. ...
The thin layer outer called cortical plate will eventually form the adult brain cortex. The other underlying layers are part of the development process and will continue to supply cells to the cortex through fetal period, these layers will eventually be almost completely lost. The ventricle is the CSF fluid-filled space within the brain. The inset image shows lying within the ventricles, part of the choroid plexus that forms and secretes the CSF. ...
And yet you said, and I quote; ok, so you accept that some people with ill functioning BBB such as diabetics (who drink more than most) and those with fevers and certain conditions etc would be affected by toxic fluoride going direct to the brain. that alone is reason enough not to fluoridate, but you didnt address the central points. you are the one who claims to be a medical doctor, so you should know these things.. If you could answer the questions I posted (here they are again; What areas? Where? Which parts of the brain? How does the impact of fenestrations play on movement of things across the BBB? Does fenestration or sinusoid matter? What about diaphragms? Could you discuss the ramifications of different junctional complexes on the BBB?
