Genetic models to study adult neurogenesis. (1/3048)

In the central nervous system (CNS) generation of new neurons continues throughout adulthood, when it is limited to the olfactory bulb and hippocampus. The knowledge regarding the function of newly-generated neurons remains limited and is vigorously investigated using diverse approaches. Among these are genetically modified mice, most of them of knock-out type (KO). Results from 23 diverse KO mouse models demonstrate the importance of particular proteins (growth factors, nitric oxide synthases, receptors, cyclins/cyclin-associated proteins, transcription factors, etc.) in adult neurogenesis (ANGE) as well as separate it from developmental neurogenesis. These results bring us closer to revealing the function of newly generated neurons in adult brains.  (+info)

Adult neurogenesis as a potential therapy for neurodegenerative diseases. (2/3048)

Neurodegenerative diseases, such as Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), are progressive neurological diseases that affect millions of people worldwide. Recent identification and advances in our understanding of multi-potent neural stem cells/progenitors in the mature CNS has raised the possibility that these discoveries can be translated into an effective therapy for degenerative neurological disease.  (+info)

Absent or low rate of adult neurogenesis in the hippocampus of bats (Chiroptera). (3/3048)

Bats are the only flying mammals and have well developed navigation abilities for 3D-space. Even bats with comparatively small home ranges cover much larger territories than rodents, and long-distance migration by some species is unique among small mammals. Adult proliferation of neurons, i.e., adult neurogenesis, in the dentate gyrus of rodents is thought to play an important role in spatial memory and learning, as indicated by lesion studies and recordings of neurons active during spatial behavior. Assuming a role of adult neurogenesis in hippocampal function, one might expect high levels of adult neurogenesis in bats, particularly among fruit- and nectar-eating bats in need of excellent spatial working memory. The dentate gyrus of 12 tropical bat species was examined immunohistochemically, using multiple antibodies against proteins specific for proliferating cells (Ki-67, MCM2), and migrating and differentiating neurons (Doublecortin, NeuroD). Our data show a complete lack of hippocampal neurogenesis in nine of the species (Glossophaga soricina, Carollia perspicillata, Phyllostomus discolor, Nycteris macrotis, Nycteris thebaica, Hipposideros cyclops, Neoromicia rendalli, Pipistrellus guineensis, and Scotophilus leucogaster), while it was present at low levels in three species (Chaerephon pumila, Mops condylurus and Hipposideros caffer). Although not all antigens were recognized in all species, proliferation activity in the subventricular zone and rostral migratory stream was found in all species, confirming the appropriateness of our methods for detecting neurogenesis. The small variation of adult hippocampal neurogenesis within our sample of bats showed no indication of a correlation with phylogenetic relationship, foraging strategy, type of hunting habitat or diet. Our data indicate that the widely accepted notion of adult neurogenesis supporting spatial abilities needs to be considered carefully. Given their astonishing longevity, certain bat species may be useful subjects to compare adult neurogenesis with other long-living species, such as monkeys and humans, showing low rates of adult hippocampal neurogenesis.  (+info)

Effect of neural precursor proliferation level on neurogenesis in rat brain during aging and after focal ischemia. (4/3048)

The observed age-related decline in neurogenesis may result from reduced proliferation or increased death rate of neuronal precursor cells (NPCs). We found that caspase-3, but not caspase-6, -7, or -9, was activated in NPCs in neurogenic regions of young, young-adult, middle-aged and aged rat brains. The number of capase-3-immunoreactive cells was highest in young and lowest in aged rats. Surprisingly, intraventricular administration of a caspase-3 inhibitor failed to restore the number of BrdU-positive cells in the aged dentate gyrus, suggesting that the age-related decline in neurogenesis may be attributable primarily to reduced proliferation. Additionally, we also found that NPCs in the subventricular zone of young-adult and aged rat brain were increased after focal cerebral ischemia, suggesting that the increase in neurogenesis induced by ischemia may result from an increase in the rate of NPC proliferation, but not from a decrease in NPC death. Thus, our results suggest that age-related and injury-induced changes in the rate of neurogenesis are controlled at the level of NPC proliferation. Furthermore, our results may imply that the mechanisms that maintain a stable population of NPCs in the normal adult and in the ischemic brain, which account for the observed age-dependent reduction or injury-induced increases in neurogenesis, impinge on the regulation of cell division at the NPC level.  (+info)

Radial glia cells in the developing human brain. (8/3048)

 (+info)

Radial glia‐like cells (RGCs) are the hypothesized source of adult hippocampal neurogenesis. However, the current model of hippocampal neurogenesis does not fully incorporate the in vivo heterogeneity of RGCs. In order to better understand the contribution of different RGC subtypes to adult hippocampal neurogenesis, we employed widely used transgenic lines (Nestin‐CreERT2 and GLAST::CreERT2 mice) to explore how RGCs contribute to neurogenesis under basal conditions and after stimulation and depletion of neural progenitor cells. We first used these inducible fate‐tracking transgenic lines to define the similarities and differences in the contribution of nestin‐ and GLAST‐lineage cells to basal long‐term hippocampal neurogenesis. We then explored the ability of nestin‐ and GLAST‐lineage RGCs to contribute to neurogenesis after experimental manipulations that either ablate neurogenesis (i.c.v. application of the anti‐mitotic AraC, cytosine‐β‐D‐arabinofuranoside) or ...

AU - Garza, J. C.. AU - Guo, M.. AU - Zhang, W.. AU - Lu, Xinyun. PY - 2012/8/1. Y1 - 2012/8/1. N2 - Stress and glucocorticoid stress hormones inhibit neurogenesis, whereas antidepressants increase neurogenesis and block stress-induced decrease in neurogenesis. Our previous studies have shown that leptin, an adipocyte-derived hormone with antidepressant-like properties, promotes baseline neurogenesis in the adult hippocampus. This study aimed to determine whether leptin is able to restore suppression of neurogenesis in a rat chronic unpredictable stress (CUS) model of depression. Chronic treatment with leptin reversed the CUS-induced reduction of hippocampal neurogenesis and depression-like behaviors. Leptin treatment elicited a delayed long-lasting antidepressant-like effect in the forced swim ...
Neurogenesis is the process of birth of neurons wherein neurons are generated from neural stem cells. Contrary to popular belief, neurogenesis continuously occurs in specific regions in the adult brain. Developmental neurogenesis and adult neurogenesis differ markedly. This article is limited in scope to adult neurogenesis. In humans, new neurons are continually born throughout adulthood in two regions of the brain: The subgranular zone (SGZ), part of the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus. The striatum; however the adult-born neurons are a type of interneuron, not a type that projects to other brain areas. In other species of mammals, particularly rodents, adult-born neurons also appear in the olfactory bulb. In humans, however, few if any olfactory bulb neurons are generated after birth. Much more attention has been paid to neurogenesis in the dentate gyrus than in the other areas. Many of the newborn dentate gyrus neurons die shortly after they are born, but a number of them become functionally ...
Adult hippocampal neurogenesis is a process involving the continuous generation of newborn neurons in the hippocampus of adult animals. Mounting evidence has suggested that hippocampal neurogenesis contributes to some forms of hippocampus-dependent learning and memory; however, the detailed mechanism concerning how this small number of newborn neurons could affect learning and memory remains unclear. In this review, we discuss the relationship between adult-born neurons and learning and memory, with a highlight on recently discovered potential roles of neurogenesis in pattern separation and forgetting ...
The Wnt signaling pathway plays multiple roles during adult neurogenesis, regulating proliferation, differentiation and maturation of newborn neurons [15-18, 40]. Here we studied the potential role of the Wnt receptor FZD1 during adult hippocampal neurogenesis. We specifically focused on FZD1 since it is expressed in the adult hippocampus [22, 25], and is well known to activate the canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway [25-29]. We found that in the adult dentate gyrus, FZD1 is mainly expressed in NSCs, amplifying progenitors and immature neurons, suggesting that FZD1 may mediate the activation of the Wnt pathway in these cell-types. In agreement, the expression of FZD1 was also found in cultured AHPs that were isolated from hippocampi of adult mice.. The in vivo role of FZD1 in adult neurogenesis was evaluated by retrovirus-mediated shRNA knockdown of FZD1 expression in newborn cells of the dentate gyrus. We determined that differentiation into neurons was impaired in FZD1-deficient cells. ...
The hippocampal dentate gyrus in the adult mammalian brain contains neural stem/progenitor cells (NS/PCs) capable of generating new neurons, i.e., neurogenesis. Most drugs of abuse examined to date decrease adult hippocampal neurogenesis, but the effects of cannabis (marijuana or cannabinoids) on hippocampal neurogenesis remain unknown. This study aimed at investigating the potential regulatory capacity of the potent synthetic cannabinoid HU210 on hippocampal neurogenesis and its possible correlation with behavioral change. We show that both embryonic and adult rat hippocampal NS/PCs are immunoreactive for CB1 cannabinoid receptors, indicating that cannabinoids could act on CB1 receptors to regulate neurogenesis. This hypothesis is supported by further findings that HU210 promotes proliferation, but not differentiation, of cultured embryonic hippocampal NS/PCs likely via a sequential activation of CB1 receptors, Gi/o proteins, and ERK signaling. Chronic, but not acute, HU210 treatment promoted ...

Y1 - 2015/10/1. N2 - Adult-generated dentate granule neurons have emerged as major contributors to hippocampal plasticity. Newneurons are generated fromneural stem cells through a complex sequence of proliferation, differentiation, and maturation steps. Development of the new neuron is dependent on the precise temporal activity of transcription factors, which coordinate the expression of stage-specific genetic programs. Here, we review current knowledge in transcription factor-mediated regulation of mammalian neural stem cells and neurogenesis and will discuss potential mechanisms of how transcription factor networks, on one hand, allow for precise execution of the developmental sequence and, on the other hand, allow for adaptation of the rate and timing of adult neurogenesis in response to complex stimuli. ...
New neurons incorporate into the granular cell layer of the dentate gyrus throughout life. Neurogenesis is modulated by behavior and plays a major role in hippocampal plasticity. Along with older mature neurons, new neurons structure the dentate gyrus and determine its function. Recent data suggest that the level of hippocampal neurogenesis is substantial in the human brain, suggesting that neurogenesis may have important implications for human cognition. In support of that, impaired neurogenesis compromises hippocampal function and plays a role in cognitive deficits in Alzheimers disease mouse models. We review current work suggesting that neuronal differentiation is defective in Alzheimers disease, leading to dysfunction of the dentate gyrus. Additionally, alterations in critical signals regulating neurogenesis, such as presenilin-1, Notch 1, soluble amyloid precursor protein, CREB, and β-catenin underlie dysfunctional neurogenesis in Alzheimers disease. Lastly, we discuss the detectability of
In the mammalian dentate gyrus (DG) neurogenesis continues throughout life. Accumulating evidence suggests a unique contribution of adult-generated neurons in DG synaptic plasticity and hippocampal-mediated learning and memory functions. However, the precise involvement of adult neurogenesis to disease-related cognitive deficits still remains unclear. Intellectual disabilities are the most striking clinical features of Down Syndrome (DS) and are characterized by learning deficits and memory impairment, particularly in hippocampus-related functions. Accordingly, the Ts65Dn mouse model of DS recapitulate many hippocampal cognitive deficits of the human syndrome, and also show decreased adult neurogenesis and impaired DG synaptic plasticity. To elucidate the contribution of faulty adult neurogenesis to DG synaptic plasticity deficits and memory impairment in DS we have treated adult Ts65Dn mice with lithium, a widely used mood stabilizer that also promotes neurogenesis. Results showed that chronic ...
It may be possible to increase the neuron reserve of the hippocampus - and thus improve preconditions for learning - by promoting neurogenesis via sustained aerobic exercise such as running, say researchers.. Aerobic exercise, such as running, has positive effects on brain structure and function, for example, the generation of neurons (neurogenesis) in the hippocampus, a brain structure important in learning. It has been unclear whether high-intensity interval training (HIT), referring to alternating short bouts of very intense anaerobic exercise with recovery periods, or anaerobic resistance training has similar effects on hippocampal neurogenesis in adulthood. In addition, individual genetic variation in the overall response to physical exercise likely plays a part in the effects of exercise on adult neurogenesis but is less studied.. Researchers from the Department of Psychology and from the Department of Biology of Physical Activity at the University of Jyväskylä studied the effects of ...
We have previously hypothesized that the reason why physical activity increases precursor cell proliferation in adult neurogenesis is that movement serves

Studies in a variety of models have revealed genetic, environmental and pharmacological factors that regulate adult neurogenesis. The present review examines some of the molecular and cellular mechanisms that could be mediating these regulatory effects in both the normal and dysfunctional brain. 3. The dysregulation of adult neurogenesis may contribute to the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Huntingtons, Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease, as well as psychiatric disorders such as depresssion. Recent evidence supports this idea and, furthermore, also indicates that factors ...
Adult neurogenesis, the continuous generation of newborn neurons in discrete regions of the brain throughout life, is now widely regarded as a fundamental mechanism of neural plasticity. This phenomenon, and in particular the integration of new neurons into the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus, has been associated with the regulation of important but quite subtle and complex aspects of cognition and memory formation.. In addition to its important role in the healthy adult brain, adult neurogenesis has also been of considerable interest to the research community because of a growing body of literature implicating its deregulation in mental disorders. Perhaps the most high-profile example of this is the putative role of reduced neurogenesis in the adult hippocampus in the pathogenesis of major depression.. However, despite the fact that adult neurogenesis is confined to very discrete regions of the brain, and the established role of adult neurogenesis in major depression notwithstanding, it is ...
Synopsis: Except in trauma, where neural stem cells migrate to replace damaged tissue, neurogenesis in adult humans only occurs in the hippocampus, and possibly the SVN. In rodent models of anxiety/depression (e.g. anxious strains exposed to prolonged periods of stress, including social subordination) hippocampal neurogenesis is inhibited and hippocampal size is reduced, probably through direct action of glucocorticoids on hippocampal neurons and reduced transcription of BDNF and related genes. This may leave the hippocampus less able to excert its normally inhibitory effect on the HPA axis, glucocorticoid levels rise further, and depression ensues. Inhibitors of the serotonin transporter (SSRIs) help the brain break out of this cycle by stimulating hippocampal neurogenesis and BDNF transcription, probably via the 5HT1A receptor (5HT1A knockouts have normal baseline neurogenesis but do not respond to SSRIs). Noradrenaline has comparable effects to serotonin on neurogenesis ...
Title: Neurodegeneration and Neurogenesis: Focus on Alzheimers Disease. VOLUME: 3 ISSUE: 1. Author(s):David A. Greenberg and Kunlin Jin. Affiliation:Buck Institute for Age Research,8001 Redwood Boulevard, Novato, CA 94945, USA.. Keywords:Neurodegeneration, neurogenesis, neuronal precursor cells, stem cells, hippocampus, dentate gyrus. Abstract: Neurogenesis, or the production of new neurons from neuronal precursor cells, is a normal phenomenon in the adult brain, and is accentuated by brain injury. Forms of injury associated with increased neurogenesis include both acute (e.g., stroke) and chronic neurodegenerations. Studies on human postmortem material and transgenic mice overexpressing amyloid precursor protein mutations found in familial Alzheimers disease (AD) suggest that AD is associated with enhanced neurogenesis. However, the mechanism responsible for this effect is unknown, as is what influence it may have on the clinical course of murine or human AD. If AD leads to the production of ...
While the research specifically focused on what happens when neurogenesis is blocked, the scientists said the results suggest that increasing adult neurogenesis might be a potential way to combat drug addiction and relapse.. More research will be needed to test this hypothesis, but treatments that increase adult neurogenesis may prevent addiction before it starts, which would be especially important for patients treated with potentially addictive medications, said Dr. Amelia Eisch, associate professor of psychiatry at UT Southwestern and senior author of the study. Additionally, treatments that increase adult neurogenesis during abstinence might prevent relapse.. Increasingly, addiction researchers have recognized that some aspects of the condition - such as forming drug-context associations - might involve the hippocampus, which is a region of the brain associated with learning and memory. Only with recent technological advances have scientists been able to test their theories in animals by ...
Neurogenesis is the process of neural stem cell differentiation into functional mature neurons. During this process neuronal transcription factors are activated, as well as developmental signaling pathways such as Notch and WNT. The neuronal maturation process involves not only intracellular signaling, but also extracellular changes. These extracellular changes include cellular migration to the appropriate brain area and development of dendritic and axonal contacts with other neurons. During the developmental process, neurons proliferate and differentiate. Neurons that are no longer needed during the developmental process undergo apoptosis. Neurogenesis was originally considered a developmental process, occurring only during embryonic development. However, neurogenesis now clearly plays an important role in adult neural functions such as synaptic plasticity. Dysregulation of neurogenesis during embryonic development leads to inborn neurological disorders, while dysregulation during adulthood is ...

Plays a role in the process of neurogenesis. Required throughout embryonic neurogenesis to maintain neural progenitor cells, also called radial glial cells (RGCs), by allowing their daughter cells to choose progenitor over neuronal cell fate. Not required for the proliferation of neural progenitor cells before the onset of embryonic neurogenesis. Also required postnatally in the subventricular zone (SVZ) neurogenesis by regulating SVZ neuroblasts survival and ependymal wall integrity. Negative regulator of NF-kappa-B signaling pathway. The inhibition of NF-kappa-B activation is mediated at least in part, by preventing MAP3K7IP2 to interact with polyubiquitin chains of TRAF6 and RIPK1 and by stimulating the Lys-48-linked polyubiquitination and degradation of TRAF6 in cortical neurons.
The main finding of this study is that in PDGF-APPSw,Ind transgenic mice, as in the brains of patients with AD, the generation of new neurons is increased, compared with basal levels of neurogenesis observed in controls. Several conclusions emerge from this finding.. First, because it can be recapitulated in an animal model, the enhancement of neurogenesis observed previously in the hippocampus of AD patients is likely to be a feature of the disease per se, and not an epiphenomenon related to, for example, nutritional state or medications. This is important because nutritional deficiency is common late in the course of AD, and neurogenesis is increased in anorexic (anx/anx) mutant mice (27), which die of starvation. In addition, several drugs that are used commonly by AD patients may also stimulate neurogenesis. These include acetylcholinesterase inhibitors like donepezil, because muscarinic cholinergic receptors are expressed on neuronal progenitors and are coupled to cell proliferation (28); ...
Long-term neurological deficits due to immature cortical development are emerging as a major challenge in congenital heart disease (CHD). However, cellular mechanisms underlying dysregulation of perinatal corticogenesis in CHD remain elusive. The subventricular zone (SVZ) represents the largest postnatal niche of neural stem/progenitor cells (NSPCs). We show that the piglet SVZ resembles its human counterpart and displays robust postnatal neurogenesis. We present evidence that SVZ NSPCs migrate to the frontal cortex and differentiate into interneurons in a region-specific manner. Hypoxic exposure of the gyrencephalic piglet brain recapitulates CHD-induced impaired cortical development. Hypoxia reduces proliferation and neurogenesis in the SVZ, which is accompanied by reduced cortical growth. We demonstrate a similar reduction in neuroblasts within the SVZ of human infants born with CHD. Our findings demonstrate that SVZ NSPCs contribute to perinatal corticogenesis and suggest that restoration of ...

Neural stem cells (NSCs) generate new neurons throughout life in two distinct areas of the mammalian brain, the subventricular zone lining the lateral ventricles and the hippocampal dentate gyrus. Adult neurogenesis has been implicated in tissue homeostasis, physiologic brain function, and is also associated with a number of neuro-psychiatric diseases, such as cognitive aging and depression. Understanding the mechanisms underlying adult neurogenesis represents a prerequisite for future therapeutic targeting of adult NSCs for endogenous brain repair. Our previous work has identified several pathways/genes that are critically involved in certain steps, from the dividing NSC to the integrating newborn neuron, during the developmental course of adult neurogenesis. Further, we have participated in efforts to characterize the functional role of adult neurogenesis on a behavioral level. Currently, we use gene expression profiling together with analyses of the metabolic state of NSCs and their progeny ...
While human data in this field are still quite limited, animal studies provide abundant evidence demonstrating the link between perinatal immune activation and consequences for the immune system and stress susceptibility in adulthood. These studies, in line with the inflammation and neurogenesis studies described above, also use LPS to activate the immune system; however E. coli infection was employed by some research groups to stimulate immune response [20-22]. Most of the studies show that immune stimulation over the first few days of life leads to changes in the cytokine production in the brain in response to LPS exposure in adulthood. Thus Bilbo and colleagues showed that neonatal E. coli infection at PND 4 led to an increase in IL-1β protein shortly after (1.5 hrs) adult LPS exposure. Interestingly this effect was specific for the hippocampus and parietal cortex [21], while hypothalamic IL-1β protein content was decreased in the same conditions [22]. These changes also correlated with ...
Recently, the statement neurons do not regenerate during adulthood has been challenged, and increasing evidence shows that mature brains are capable of regenerating neurons (Sugaya, 2005). Certain neurogenic regions of the dentate gyrus and the olfactory bulbs display enhanced adult neurogenesis in response to neuronal damage (Gould and Tanapat, 1997; Parent, 2003; Koketsu et al., 2006; Gould, 2007). Recent studies have also demonstrated that increased neurogenesis occurs in the hippocampus and ependyma of patients with chronic neurodegenerative disorders such as AD (Jin et al., 2004) and Huntingtons disease (Curtis et al., 2003).. Under normal conditions, little or no neurogenesis occurs in the non-neurogenic regions of the brain, such as the neocortex, after birth (Spalding et al., 2005; Bhardwaj et al., 2006) even though many glial progenitor cells are present in these regions (Gogate et al., 1994; Pincus et al., 1997; Roy et al., 1999; Chang et al., 2000; Arsenijevic et al., 2001; ...

Project leader: Prof. Dr. M. Brand. The capacity to generate new neurons is lost in most areas of the adult mammalian brain, while most non-mammalian vertebrates, including teleosts, retain this ability in many areas of the CNS. Mechanisms of neurogenesis are generally highly conserved among vertebrates. However, the mechanisms that support neural precursor/stem cell activity in the teleost brain, or that prevent it in the mammalian brain, are at present largely unknown. Previously we characterized neural progenitor cell activity, lineage and differentiation of new neurons and glia in the adult zebrafish telencephalon and cerebellum. We identified different types of stem- and progenitor cells in the adult niches as well as molecular differences between them, and showed a functional requirement for Fgf and Bmp signaling. Using newly generated transgenic marker lines, FACS sorting methods and transcriptome analysis, we systematically determined shared and distinct molecular properties of these ...
The birth of new neurons (neurogenesis) does not end completely during development but continues throughout all life in two areas of the adult nervous system, i.e. subventricular zone and hippocampus. Recent research has shown that hippocampal neurogenesis is crucial for memory formation.
Organisms need to adapt to the ecological constraints in their habitat. How specific processes reflect such adaptations are difficult to model experimentally. We tested whether environmental shifts in oxygen tension lead to events in the adult newt brain that share features with processes occurring during neuronal regeneration under normoxia. By experimental simulation of varying oxygen concentrations, we show that hypoxia followed by re-oxygenation lead to neuronal death and hallmarks of an injury response, including activation of neural stem cells ultimately leading to neurogenesis. Neural stem cells accumulate reactive oxygen species (ROS) during re-oxygenation and inhibition of ROS biosynthesis counteracts their proliferation as well as neurogenesis. Importantly, regeneration of dopamine neurons under normoxia also depends on ROS-production. These data demonstrate a role for ROS-production in neurogenesis in newts and suggest that this role may have been recruited to the capacity to replace ...
In the first mouse study, when young and old mice were conjoined, allowing blood to flow between the two, the young mice showed a decrease in neurogenesis while the old mice showed an increase. When blood plasma was then taken from old mice and injected into young mice, there was a similar decrease in neurogenesis, and impairments in memory and learning.. Analysis of the concentrations of blood proteins in the conjoined animals revealed the chemokine (a type of cytokine) whose level in the blood showed the biggest change - CCL11, or eotaxin. When this was injected into young mice, they indeed showed a decrease in neurogenesis, and this was reversed once an antibody for the chemokine was injected. Blood levels of CCL11 were found to increase with age in both mice and humans.. The chemokine was a surprise, because to date the only known role of CCL11 is that of attracting immune cells involved in allergy and asthma. It is thought that most likely it doesnt have a direct effect on neurogenesis, ...
The importance of adult neurogenesis has only recently been accepted, resulting in a completely new field of investigation within stem cell biology. The regulation and functional significance of adult neurogenesis is currently an area of highly active research. G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) have emerged as potential modulators of adult neurogenesis. GPCRs represent a class of proteins with significant clinical importance, because approximately 30% of all modern therapeutic treatments target these receptors. GPCRs bind to a large class of neurotransmitters and neuromodulators such as norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin. Besides their typical role in cellular communication, GPCRs are expressed on adult neural stem cells and their progenitors that relay specific signals to regulate the neurogenic process. This review summarizes the field of adult neurogenesis and its methods and specifies the roles of various GPCRs and their signal transduction pathways that are involved in the regulation ...
In the adult SGZ, both type 1 and type 2 cells (radial and nonradial glia-like cells) can give rise to intermediate TAPs, which in turn generate neuroblasts (Figure 2). Immature neurons then migrate into the inner granule cell layer and differentiate into dentate granule cells in the hippocampus, followed by dendrites extensions and axonal projections towards CA3 regions [14]. New neurons eventually incorporate into existing neuronal circuitry through a stereotypic synaptic integration [15]. Initially, these adult-born neurons received tonic activation by ambient GABA released from surrounding interneurons [16,17]. Later on, they started to receive GABAergic synaptic inputs, followed by glutamatergic inputs ([17] [18]Overstreet-Wadiche et al., 2006b) and mossy fiber synaptic outputs to CA3 neurons [19]. During specific differentiation stages, adult-born neurons were found to display higher excitability and ehanced synaptic plasticity comparing to granule cells that already exhisted in the ...

The functional relevance of adult neurogenesis is uncertain,[28] but there is some evidence that hippocampal adult neurogenesis is important for learning andmemory.[29] Multiple mechanisms for the relationship between increased neurogenesis and improved cognition have been suggested, including computational theories to demonstrate that new neurons increase memory capacity,[30] reduce interference between memories,[31] or add information about time to memories.[32]Experiments aimed at ablating neurogenesis have proven inconclusive, but several studies have proposed neurogenic-dependence in some types of learning,[33] and others seeing no effect.[34] Studies have demonstrated that the act of learning itself is associated with increased neuronal survival.[35] However, the overall findings that adult neurogenesis is important for any kind of learning are equivocal ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Disc1 Variation Leads to Specific Alterations in Adult Neurogenesis. AU - Chandran, Jayanth S. AU - Kazanis, Ilias. AU - Clapcote, Steven J. AU - Ogawa, Fumiaki.

N2 - Disrupted in schizophrenia 1 (DISC1) is a risk factor for a spectrum of neuropsychiatric illnesses including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depressive disorder. Here we use two missense Disc1 mouse mutants, described previously with distinct behavioural phenotypes, to demonstrate that Disc1 variation exerts differing effects on the formation of newly generated neurons in the adult hippocampus. Disc1 mice carrying a homozygous Q31L mutation, and displaying depressive-like phenotypes, have fewer proliferating cells while Disc1 mice with a homozygous L100P mutation that induces schizophrenia-like phenotypes, show changes in the generation, placement and maturation of newly generated neurons in the ...

The majority of cells that build the nervous system of animals are generated early in embryonic development in a process called neurogenesis. Although the vertebrate nervous system is much more complex than that of insects, the underlying principles of neurogenesis are intriguingly similar. In both …
We previously reported that the dried peel powder of Citrus kawachiensis, one of the citrus products of Ehime, Japan, exerted anti-inflammatory effects in the brain of a lipopolysaccharide-injected systemic inflammation animal model. Inflammation is one of the main mechanisms underlying aging in the brain; therefore, we herein evaluated the anti-inflammatory and other effects of the dried peel powder of C. kawachiensis in the senescence-accelerated mouse-prone 8 (SAMP8) model. The C. kawachiensis treatment inhibited microglial activation in the hippocampus, the hyper-phosphorylation of tau at 231 of threonine in hippocampal neurons, and ameliorated the suppression of neurogenesis in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus ...
Neurogenesis continues through the adult life of mice in the subgranular zone of the dentate gyrus in the hippocampus, but its function remains unclear. Measuring cellular proliferation in the hippocampus of 719 outbred heterogeneous stock mice revealed a highly significant correlation with the proportions of CD8+ versus CD4+ T lymphocyte subsets. This correlation reflected shared genetic loci, with the exception of the H-2Ea locus that had a dominant influence on T cell subsets but no impact on neurogenesis. Analysis of knockouts and repopulation of TCRα-deficient mice by subsets of T cells confirmed the influence of T cells on adult neurogenesis, indicating that CD4+ T cells or subpopulations thereof mediate the effect. Our results reveal an organismal impact, broader than hitherto suspected, of the natural genetic variation that controls T cell development and homeostasis.
Neurogenesis has been the subject of active research in recent years and many authors have explored the phenomenology of the process, its regulation and its purported purpose in both the subventricular zone (SVZ) and the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus. In the adult SVZ, type-B astrocytes that are present close to endothelial cells act as slowly dividing neural stem cells, capable of generating a progeny of type-A neuroblast precursors [1] through a rapidly proliferating type-C cell intermediate. Type-A neuroblasts then migrate in a unique fashion to the olfactory bulb (OB) along a path known as the rostral migratory stream (RMS), which is large (of the order of millimetres) in comparison with the size of each individual cell (of the order of microns) [2]. These neuronal precursors migrate in chains along the RMS, which is ensheathed by astrocytic processes and outlined by blood vessels [3-5]. After migrating through the RMS, these type-A neuroblasts arrive at the centre of the OB and then move ...

The polymorphic CYP2C19 enzyme metabolizes psychoactive compounds and is expressed in the adult liver and fetal brain. Previously, we demonstrated that the absence of CYP2C19 is associated with lower levels of depressive symptoms in 1472 Swedes. Conversely, transgenic mice carrying the human CYP2C19 gene (2C19TG) have shown an anxious phenotype and decrease in hippocampal volume and adult neurogenesis. The aims of this study were to: (1) examine whether the 2C19TG findings could be translated to humans, (2) evaluate the usefulness of the 2C19TG strain as a tool for preclinical screening of new antidepressants and (3) provide an insight into the molecular underpinnings of the 2C19TG phenotype ...
The developmental functionality of neural networks involved in complex diseases, such as addiction, is an important determinant of adult behavior. Thus, understanding the principles of embryonic neurogenesis is of prime importance. To approach this issue, I focused on neurogenesis control in the midbrain-hindbrain domain, which contains a long-lasting progenitor pool, the Intervening zone (IZ). I identified the Hairy/E(Spl) factors Him and Her5 as the crucial determinants of IZ formation. The expression of these two factors at the end of gastrulation prefigures and later during development precisely delineates in space the IZ. The IZ is formed as a two-partite area (lateral (LIZ) and medial (MIZ)), these two domains differing with respect to their sensitivity to the ``Him + Her5 inhibitory activity. Using single and double knockdowns of him and her5, as well as a him + her5 deletion mutant background b404 , I demonstrated that Him and Her5 are equally necessary for MIZ formation, and that they ...
The adult brain has a very limited capacity for generation of new neurons, and neurogenesis only takes place in restricted regions. Some evidence for neurogenesis after injury has been reported, but few, if any, neurons are replaced after brain injury or degeneration, and the permanent loss of neurons leads to long-term disability and loss of brain function. For decades, researchers have been developing cell transplantation using exogenous cell sources for brain repair, and this method has now been shown to successfully restore lost function in experimental and clinical trials. Here, we review the development of cell-replacement strategies for brain repair in Parkinsons disease using the example of human foetal brain cells being successfully translated from preclinical findings to clinical trials. These trials demonstrate that cell-replacement therapy is a viable option for patients with Parkinsons disease, but more importantly also show how the limited availability of foetal cells calls for ...

The adult hippocampus continuously produces new neurons that integrate into the dentate gyrus network and contribute to information processing. What features of adult-born neurons are important for information processing in the dentate gyrus? Marín-Burgin et al. (see the Perspective by Kempermann) labeled newborn neurons and used sophisticated electrophysiological and imaging techniques to show that immature neurons integrated a broader variety of synaptic inputs from different origins compared with mature neurons, which were highly input specific. Thus, immature neurons may represent a population of integrators that are broadly tuned during a transient period and may encode most features of incoming information. After maturation, new granule cells display a high activation threshold and input specificity to become good pattern separators.. A. Marín-Burgin, L. A. Mongiat, M. Belén Pardi, A. F.

Melatonin is a well-known regulator of sleep, and its precursor, N-acetylserotonin (NAS), has become recognized as a circadian-regulated signaling molecule independent from its role in melatonin synthesis. NAS activates the neurotrophin receptor tyrosine kinase TrkB, which has been implicated in alleviating depression, a process that involves production of new neurons. Sompol et al. injected NAS into mice deficient in the NAS synthesis enzyme and showed that this promoted hippocampal cell proliferation and an increase in the number of stem cell progenitors that were positive for phosphorylated TrkB. In mice with an inhibitor-sensitive knockin of TrkB, cotreatment with the TrkB inhibitor and NAS prevented the NAS-induced increase in hippocampal cell proliferation and blocked the NAS-stimulated increase in phosphorylated TrkB and activation of downstream signaling proteins. Injection of NAS into mice deficient in endogenous NAS synthesis during only the sleeping phase of the day was sufficient to ...
