Changes characterized by focal loss of Purkinje neurons (Fig. 1-A3). NDEA exposure, with or without chronic HFD feeding, resulted in loss of Purkinje cells (Figs. 1-A2, 1-A4) and variable thinning of the granule cell layer. Immunohistochemical staining demonstrated similar levels and distributions of GFAP immunoreactivity in cells distributed in the granule layer of control (Fig 1-B1) and HFD-fed

A common theme resonating from these unnecessary lifestyle trends is that we have inadver

Lyclonal and monoclonal antibodies and immunodetection reagents were purchased from Abcam (Cambridge, MA), Vector Laboratories (Burlingame, CA), Upstate (Billerica, MA), Chemicon (Temecula, CA), or Molecular Probes (Eugene, OR). The insulin ultra-sensitive ELISA kit was obtained from ALPCO Diagnostics (Salem, NH). Histochoice fixative was purchased from Amresco, Inc (Solon, OH). Antibodies to tumo

Fasting blood glucose and serum insulin concentrations were significantly lower in the LFD+VEH treated control group compared with all other groups. The mean levels of both serum glucose and insulin were next higher in the LFD+NDEA group, followed by the HFD group. The HFD+NDEA treated rats had the highest mean serum glucose and insulin levels. Correspondingly, serum leptin levels were significant

S described elsewhere [79]. For molecular and biochemical assays, cerebella were snap-frozen in a dry ice-methanol bath and stored at -80 . We studied cerebellar tissue because the cerebellum: 1) requires intact insulin/IGF signaling to maintain its structural and functional integrity [80,81]; 2) is severely damaged by i.c.-STZ mediated neurodegeneration [19,22]; 3) although relatively spared, it

D that volatile solvents such as benzene, a main constituent of gasoline fuel, seems to interact with the synthesis and catabolism of catecholamines and serotonin in the brain, which might explain the neurotoxic effects of these solvents [53]. In this regard, deficiencies of serotonin or other monoamine neurotransmitters such as dopamine and norepinephrine are linked with depression [54,55]. In re

On-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), and AD [7-13]. The concept that chronic injury caused by exposure to alkylating agents could result in malignancy and/or tissue degeneration is not far-fetched given the facts that: 1) chronic exposures to tobacco nitrosamines cause both lung cancer and emphysema; and 2) treatment with streptozotocin (STZ), a nitrosamine-related compound, causes hepatocellular

Ause mitochondrial dysfunction [16], ATP deficiency [25] and apoptosis. The structural similarities between STZ and nitrosamines, including N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA) and N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) [26], together with experimental evidence that high doses of STZ cause cancer while lower doses cause diabetes or AD-type neurodegeneration with cognitive impairment [15,16,22] led us to hypothesiz
