The investigation of srebp and c/ebp expression during global ischemia/reperfusion induced oxidative stress in rat brain cortex and cerebellum

Dağdeviren, Melih
Ischemic brain injury causes neurodegeneration. In this study, the mechanism of neurodegeneration was investigated by examining the role of sterol regulatory element binding protein-1 (SREBP-1), CCAAT enhancer binding proteinβ (C/EBPβ), glutathione (GSH), malondialdehyde (MDA), glutathione-S-transferase (GST), and superoxide dismutase (SOD). Carotid artery occlusion (CAO) plus hypotension was produced for 10 minutes. Control groups were sham operated. Animals were sacrificed after 24 hours, 1 week, 2 and 4 weeks of reperfusion periods. The expression of C/EBPβ and SREBP-1 in rat brain cortex and cerebellum were examined by western blotting. C/EBPβ expressions significantly increased in both cytosolic (1.19, 1.58 fold) and nuclear (1.73, 1.81 fold) extracts of brain cortex at 24 hours and 1 week CAO groups, respectively. In cerebellum, C/EBPβ expression significantly increased in 1 week, cytosolic (1.63 fold), and nuclear (1.35 fold) extracts. SREBP-1 expression increased significantly in both cytosolic (2.07 fold) and nuclear (1.41 fold) extracts of brain cortex in 1 week. SREBP-1 expression significantly increased in cytosolic (2.15 fold) and nuclear (1.79 fold) extracts of cerebellum in 1 week. There were no significant alterations in SREBP-1 C/EBPβ expressions for 2 and 4 weeks in both cytosolic and nuclear extracts of brain cortex and cerebellum. There were insignificant changes in GSH and GST levels in cortex. However, MDA and SOD levels significantly increased by 43.0 % and 47.3 %, respectively, in 24 hours. Our findings indicate that increase in SREBP-1 and C/EBPβ expressions may be related to oxidative stress during ischemic neurodegenerative processes.


The effects of chronic hypoperfusion on rat cranial bone mineral and organic matrix - A Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy study
Boyar, H; Zorlu, F; Mut, M; Severcan, Feride (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-06-01)
Arteriovenous malformations (AVM) of the brain, errors in the development of the vasculature, produce high flow arteriovenous shunts. They steal blood from surrounding brain tissue, which is chronically hypoperfused. Hypoperfusion is a condition of inadequate tissue perfusion and oxygenation resulting in abnormal tissue metabolism. In the present study Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy was used to investigate the effects of hypoperfusion on rat cranial bone mineral and organic matrix at the mol...

Metabolic diseases or injuries damage bone structure and self-renewal capacity. Trace elements and hydroxyapatite crystals are important in the development of biomaterials to support the renewal of bone extracellular matrix. In this study, it was assumed that the boron-loaded nanometer-sized hydroxyapatite composite supports the construction of extracellular matrix by controlled boron release in order to prevent its toxic effect. In this context, boron release from nanometer-sized hydroxyapatite was calcula...
Examination of the dielectrophoretic spectra of MCF7 breast cancer cells and leukocytes
Çağlayan, Zeynep; Demircan Yalçın, Yağmur; Külah, Haluk (Wiley, 2020-03-01)
The detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in blood is crucial to assess metastatic progression and to guide therapy. Dielectrophoresis (DEP) is a powerful cell surface marker-free method that allows intrinsic dielectric properties of suspended cells to be exploited for CTC enrichment/isolation from blood. Design of a successful DEP-based CTC enrichment/isolation system requires that the DEP response of the targeted particles should accurately be known. This paper presents a DEP spectrum method to inve...
The serum immunoglobulin G glycosylation signature of gastric cancer
Ruhaak, L. Renee; Barkauskas, Donald A.; Torres, Javier; Cooke, Cara L.; Wu, Lauren D.; Stroble, Carol; Özcan Kabasakal, Süreyya; Williams, Cynthia C.; Camorlinga, Margarita; Rocke, David M.; Lebrilla, Carlito B.; Solnick, Jay V. (Elsevier BV, 2015-03-01)
Biomarkers may facilitate detection of gastric cancer at an earlier stage and reduce mortality. Here we sought to determine if the glycosylation profile of serum immunoglobulin G (IgG) could distinguish patients with non-atrophic gastritis (NAG), duodenal ulcer (DU) and gastric cancer (GC). Serum IgG was released and analyzed using nano-LC–TOF mass spectrometry. Statistically significant false discovery rate (FDR)-adjusted p-values were observed for 18 glycans, eight that differed significantly between NAG ...
A direct relationship between oscillatory subthalamic nucleus-cortex coupling and rest tremor in Parkinson's disease
Hirschmann, Jan; Hartmann, Christian J.; Butz, Markus; Hoogenboom, Nienke; Özkurt, Tolga Esat; Elben, Saskia; Vesper, Jan; Wojtecki, Lars; Schnitzler, Alfons (2013-12-01)
Electrophysiological studies suggest that rest tremor in Parkinson's disease is associated with an alteration of oscillatory activity. Although it is well known that tremor depends on cortico-muscular coupling, it is unclear whether synchronization within and between brain areas is specifically related to the presence and severity of tremor. To tackle this longstanding issue, we took advantage of naturally occurring spontaneous tremor fluctuations and investigated cerebral synchronization in the presence an...
