An evergrowing body of evidence indicates that valproic acidity (VPA) a histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor used to take care of epilepsy and disposition disorders has HDAC-related and -unrelated neurotoxic activity the system of which continues to be poorly understood. proteins X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP). Coinciding with AIF nuclear translocation VPA induces phosphorylation from the necroptosis-associated histone H2A relative H2AX which may donate to lethal DNA degradation. These indicators are inhibited in neuronal cells that exhibit constitutively turned on MEK/ERK and/or PI3-K/Akt success pathways permitting them to withstand VPA-induced cell loss of life. The data reveal that VPA provides neurotoxic activity and recognize a novel calpain-dependent necroptosis pathway which includes JNK1 activation and RIP-1 Rabbit Polyclonal to GAS1. appearance. or soon after delivery present with behavioral and structural abnormalities just like those seen in human beings with ASD (Ingram et ...
Despite the number of studies on the presynaptic activity of snake PLA2 neurotoxins carried out with different experimental approaches, their molecular mechanism(s) of action is still ill-defined. β-BTx has been more widely used than other SPANs and, in several cases, at concentrations (150-750 nM) far exceeding the mice LD50 values. To obtain results of physiological relevance and, of more general interest, we have here used SPANs of different structural complexity at low concentrations and have studied their effects on different types of primary cultures of neurons.. Such an experimental approach led to the finding that SPANs act very similarly, rapidly inducing a defined swelling of synaptic sites with formation of bulges. This appears to be the earliest detectable morphological sign of cell intoxication. In this respect, the four neurotoxins used here behave identically, suggesting that they might act via the same mechanism. In the belief that the study of the initial events induced by ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - A new technique for detecting sensory loss in individuals exposed to neurotoxins. AU - Arezzo, Joseph C.. AU - Schaumburg, Herbert H.. PY - 1980/7. Y1 - 1980/7. N2 - Peripheral neuropathy is one of the most common nervous system reactions to toxic chemicals. Early detection signs of peripheral neuropathy among workers exposed to these chemicals is of paramount concern to occupational physicians. This study describes the use of the Optacon®* to assess finger-tip sensation in normal and diabetic subjects. The instrument is capable of detecting the steady increase in threshold with age and is able to identify peripheral neuropathy in diabetic subjects. There was little variation upon repeated testing of the same subject. This study illustrates the usefulness of the Optacon(r) as a simple, reliable technique for detecting sensory loss in individuals with peripheral neuropathy, and suggests that it may be useful in detecting sensory loss in workers exposed to neurotoxins.. AB - ...
As I was writing Saving Our Sons (February 2017) and just recently, as I am completing The Minds of Girls (January 2018), Ive been receiving more and more emails about a topic I bring up wherever I travel: environmental neurotoxins. These neurotoxins affect childrens physical and mental health at cellular levels but we cant see them-they are hidden neuro-stressors and can be very dangerous.. At a speaking engagement in the Midwest I shared a story of two of my counseling clients who took their children off plastics, went organic, and removed gluten from their family diet. Of their five children, two were having issues with depression and obesity. After their family changes, they saw positive results: weight loss and greater health for their daughter who had become obese, and a tapering of depression for the son they had become very worried about. After I told this story a couple came up to me and shared their similar story. Their daughter had become anxious and depressed at 9. Among the ...

The amino acid sequence of the alpha-subunit of taipoxin, an extremely potent presynaptic neurotoxin from the Australian snake taipan has been determined. The very basic protein, by itself a moderately neurotoxic phospholipase, consists of a single polypeptide chain of 119 amino acids. The main fragmentation of the reduced and S-carboxymethylated derivative was accomplished by cleavage with Staphylococcus aureus V8 protease and trypsin. Chymotryptic peptides and cyanogen bromide fragments were used to align and complete the sequence, which was determined by automated Edman degradation. The taipoxin alpha-subunit is closely homologous to the other taipoxin subunits and to other elapid snake venom phospholipases A2.
Parkinsons disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder. Two major factors in both familial and sporadic PD are mitochondrial dysfunction and insufficient autophagy. My thesis research focuses on the interplay between these activities in PD. To investigate the common and differential effects of PD-inducing neurotoxins on mitochondrial bioenergetics and their relationships to cell survival, we used an in vitro culture system, differentiated dopaminergic SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells. We found that the neurotoxins rotenone, 1-methyl-4- phenylyridinium (MPP+) and 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA), decreased mitochondrial respiration and induced cell death in these cells. The extent and characteristics of mitochondrial dysfunction in response to LD50 of these neurotoxins are drastically different. Rotenone inhibits mitochondrial function at nM concentrations, and this inhibition was directly related to cell death. MPP+ only induces cell death at concentrations that are significantly ...

Decitabine is a deoxycytidine analog that is incorporated into DNA, inhibiting DNA methyltransferase (DNMT1/3A/3B) activity. This demethylating agent is clinically used to treat myelodysplastic syndromes. Decitabines inhibition of DNA methyltransferase may be modulated by PKC. Decitabine exhibits anticancer chemotherapeutic, immunomodulatory, and neurotoxic activities. In cellular models of acute myelogenous leukemia (ALL), decitabine demethylation prevents cancer cell inactivation of TRAIL signaling, increasing apoptosis and cell death. In vivo, decitabine stimulates increases in cancer testis antigen-specific cytotoxic (CD8+) T cell activity. In dopaminergic neurons, this compound induces apoptosis and upregulation of tyrosine hydroxylase and α-synuclein, suggesting complications for use in subjects with Parkinsons disease. Decitabine also inhibits replication of HIV in cellular models without displaying cytotoxicity. Additionally, this compound shows benefit in the treatment of sickle-cell ...
Toxins are potent molecules used by various bacteria to interact with a host organism. Some of them specifically act on neuronal cells (clostridial neurotoxins) leading to characteristics neurological affections. But many other toxins are multifunctional and recognize a wider range of cell types including neuronal cells. Various enterotoxins interact with the enteric nervous system, for example by stimulating afferent neurons or inducing neurotransmitter release from enterochromaffin cells which result either in vomiting, in amplification of the diarrhea, or in intestinal inflammation process. Other toxins can pass the blood brain barrier and directly act on specific neurons.

But what I really want to talk about is how huffing is gaining a whole new audience among users one would never expect. I learned about this from firsthand experience when I was called by our Deputy Chief on my way home early one evening and informed one of my ex-clients (52 years old) was just found dead at home in the bathtub with multiple cans of keyboard cleaner on the tub ledge. The person in question had finally joined AA on a serious level and had been making a meeting a day for the previous 6 months. What I came to ultimately find was that it was becoming common for AA members of all ages to be huffing but staying clean from alcohol and other more easily detectable substances. It was suggested by a few friends with 20 plus years of sobriety that the keyboard cleaner was a cheap, non detectable high through drug screens that allowed members to maintain honesty about non alcohol use but still get wasted. ...

u.n. owen: I certainly believe you- the most important thing is to listen to your body. One of the above links states that something like 15% of the population is sensitive to MSG, and the symptomology ranges from nervous energy to the kind of experience that you had. I used to avoid MSG as a matter of course, basically because I didnt know what it was, exactly. I found out a while ago, and having no detectable problems, I am not averse to foods containing it. As Malor stated earlier in the thread, a LOT of foods that have natural flavoring in the ingredient list have MSG.

Botulinum neurotoxins are highly effective therapeutic products. Their therapeutic success results from highly specific and potent inhibition of neurotransmitter release with a duration of action measured in months. These same properties, however, make the botulinum neurotoxins the most potent acute lethal toxins known. Their toxicity and restricted target cell activity severely limits their clinical utility. Understanding the structure-function relationship of the neurotoxins has enabled the development of recombinant proteins selectively incorporating specific aspects of their pharmacology. The resulting proteins are not neurotoxins, but a new class of biopharmaceuticals, Targeted Secretion Inhibitors (TSI), suitable for the treatment of a wide range of diseases where secretion plays a major role. TSI proteins inhibit secretion for a prolonged period following a single application, making them particularly suited to the treatment of chronic diseases. A TSI for the treatment of chronic pain is in
The safety profile of crotoxin administered i.m. to humans showed neurotoxicity as the most conspicuous toxic effect. This is an expected toxicity, consistent with the known effects of this toxin (31, 32, 33) . Low crotoxin concentrations produce incomplete blockage (34) reflected in vivo by paresis, which is fully reversible within 24-40 h (29) . The neurotoxic activity of crotoxin may account for diplopia, which appeared in all of the patients at the dose level of 0.18 mg/m2 because of paresis of the external ocular muscles. Diplopia was regarded as nonlimiting toxicity, because it disappeared at least 12 h before the next dose and progressively lasted for shorter intervals of time. Diplopia was not, usually during the second week, spontaneously reported by the patients, and eventually it disappeared completely. At the MTD, paresis was self-limited and did not affect the intrinsic ocular muscles or extend to pharyngeal, laryngeal, or respiratory muscles. Furthermore, it was spontaneously ...

Acrylamide is a chemical compound found in carbohydrate rich foods [1]. There has been an increased interest in acrylamide as it has been shown to be a carcinogenic and neurotoxic substance [1]. Neurotoxins are toxins that target the nervous system and disrupt the signalling that allows neurons to communicate effectively [2]. An EFSA report on the exposure of acrylamide in European member states shows that main contributors of acrylamide, across Europe, are French fries, potato crisps and coffee [3].. Factors to consider when examining the formation of acrylamide are the ingredients used in the recipe of the product and how the product is produced [4].Temperature has a major effect on the formation of acrylamide in foods; it has been shown that there are high levels of acrylamide in food that are cooked at temperatures above 120°C [4].. In 2005 a set of voluntary guidelines (it was later updated in 2009), called the CIAA toolbox was developed to help producers and processors identify ways ...

Differences between the type B neurotoxin gene sequence of Clostridium botulinum type A(B) and Cl. botulinum type B, including a six nucleotide deletion, were recently proposed as a cause of the lack of expression of this gene in the type A toxigenic strains. A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based
Botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs) are extremely potent toxins that are capable of causing death or respiratory failure leading to long-term intensive care. Treatment includes serotype-specific antitoxins, which must be administered early in the course of the intoxication. Rapidly determining human exposure to BoNT is an important public health goal. In previous work, our laboratory focused on developing Endopep-MS, a mass spectrometry-based endopeptidase method for detecting and differentiating BoNT/A-G serotypes in buffer and BoNT/A, /B, /E, and /F in clinical samples. We have previously reported the effectiveness of antibody-capture to purify and concentrate BoNTs from complex matrices, such as clinical samples. Because some antibodies inhibit or neutralize the activity of BoNT, the choice of antibody with which to extract the toxin is critical. In this work, we evaluated a panel of 16 anti-BoNT/A monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) for their ability to inhibit the in vitro activity of BoNT/A1, /A2, and ...
The carboxy-terminal domain of the heavy chain recognizes a specific binding site, while the nitrogen-terminus transports the lighter chain into the nerve cytosol (Peck et al. 2010). The lighter chain contains metalloproteases that target specific proteins involved in controlling the exocytosis machinery (Verderio et al. 2006). The inhibition of this integral machinery stops the release of acetylcholine and the neuron fails to send an important signal throughout the body. The lighter chain also decreases the stability of the binding complex, further preventing acetylcholine from being able to bind to the synaptic vesicles (Peck et al. 2010). In addition to releasing neurotoxins when exposed to varying environmental conditions, Clostridium botulinum also increases production of proteases that are secreted from the cell to breakdown polypeptides to contribute to contaminating food and therefore increasing its own toxicity. A large proportion of the bacterias genome encodes for several different ...

Insecticidal neurotoxin that modulates the insect Nav channel (DmNaV1/tipE (para/tipE)) in a unique manner, with both the activation and inactivation processes being affected. The voltage dependence of activation is shifted toward more hyperpolarized potentials (analogous to site 4 toxins) and a non-inactivating persistent sodium current is induced (site 3-like action). Interestingly, both effects take place in a voltage-dependent manner, producing a bell-shaped curve between -80 and 0 mV.

Thats really interesting- have come across a lot on Minocycline but not on Rocephin. Do you think it is direct effect, or an effect of removing cytokines or other influences of the Borrelia? How much of what you see as treatment responses do you think may be related to nonbactericidal action? I have seen a fair amount of info on the various neurotransmitter imbalances in all sorts of chronic neuro diseases. Those systems are so interrelated- you up regulate this and that down regulates. That it one heck of a puzzle. So many things bind multiple receptor sites. I could see a case for direct effect of neurotoxins and inflammatory mediators from the current work in neuroinflammation. But anything that directly effects any of structural or functional cellular components should be able to effect neurotransmitter levels. How much of what you see clinically in "tweaking" do you think might be exhaustion of that neurotransmitter type from chronic stimulation? Or I guess for that matter, from chronic ...
