Abstract:Lipid peroxidation leads to the formation of a number of by-products including acrolein. In brain from patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), acrolein was found to be elevated in vulnerable regions. Astrocytes contribute to a variety of neuronal functions but the toxicity of acrolein in astroglial cells remains unknown. Using the rat primary astroglial cells, our results show that acrolein is toxic from 15 μM. Acrolein induced a biphasic effect on glutathione (GSH) levels with a depletion after 30 min of trea…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
