  • Llorens, Franc; Bañez Coronel, Mónica; Pantano Rubiño, Lorena, 1982-; del Río, José Antonio; Ferrer, Isidre; Estivill, Xavier, 1955-; Martí, Eulàlia (BioMed Central, 2013)
    Background: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short non-coding regulatory RNAs that control gene expression usually producing translational repression and gene silencing. High-throughput sequencing technologies have revealed heterogeneity ...
  • Aso Pérez, Ester; Andrés Benito, Pol; Carmona, Margarita; Maldonado, Rafael, 1961-; Ferrer, Isidre (IOS Press, 2016)
    The endogenous cannabinoid system represents a promising therapeutic target to modify neurodegenerative pathways linked to Alzheimer's disease (AD). The aim of the present study was to evaluate the specific contribution ...
  • Aso Pérez, Ester; Sánchez Pla, Alexandre; Vegas Lozano, Esteban; Maldonado, Rafael, 1961-; Ferrer, Isidre (IOS Press, 2015)
    Several recent findings suggest that targeting the endogenous cannabinoid system can be considered as a potential therapeutic approach to treat Alzheimer's disease (AD). The present study supports this hypothesis demonstrating ...
  • Aso Pérez, Ester; Palomer, Ernest; Juvés, Salvador; Maldonado, Rafael, 1961-; Muñoz López, Francisco José, 1964-; Ferrer, Isidre (IOS Press, 2012)
    The present study shows that chronic administration of the cannabinoid receptor type 1 (CB1) receptor agonist arachidonyl-2-chloroethylamide (ACEA) at pre-symptomatic or at early symptomatic stages, at a non-amnesic dose, ...
  • Aso Pérez, Ester; Juvés, Salvador; Maldonado, Rafael, 1961-; Ferrer, Isidre (IOS Press, 2013)
    The specific CB2 cannabinoid receptor agonist JWH-133 induced cognitive improvement in double AβPP/PS1 transgenic mice, a genetic model of Alzheimer's disease. This effect was more pronounced when administered at the ...

    N-methyl-D-aspartate glutamate receptors (NMDARs) play a pivotal role in neural development and synaptic plasticity, as well as in neurological disease. Since NMDARs exert their function at the cell surface, their density ...
  • Sánchez Mut, Jose V.; Heyn, Holger; Vidal, Enrique; Moran, Sebastian; Sayols, Sergi; Delgado Morales, Raul; Schultz, Matthew D.; Ansoleaga, Belén; García Esparcia, Paula; Pons Espinal, Meritxell, 1986-; Martínez de Lagran, Maía; Dopazo, Jose M.; Rábano, Alberto; Ávila, Jesús; Dierssen, Mara; Lott, Ira T.; Ferrer, Isidre; Ecker, Joseph R.; Esteller, Manel (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
    Different neurodegenerative disorders often show similar lesions, such as the presence of amyloid plaques, TAU-neurotangles and synuclein inclusions. The genetically inherited forms are rare, so we wondered whether shared ...

    Sirtuin 2 (SIRT2) is a member of a family of NAD+ -dependent histone deacetylases (HDAC) that play diverse roles in cellular metabolism and especially for aging process. SIRT2 is located in the nucleus, cytoplasm, and ...

    Parkinson's disease (PD) is associated with the degeneration of ventral midbrain dopaminergic neurons (vmDAns) and the accumulation of toxic α-synuclein. A non-cell-autonomous contribution, in particular of astrocytes, ...
  • Llorens, Franc; Thüne, Katrin; Martí Puig, Eulàlia; Kanata, Eirini; Dafou, Dimitra; Díaz Lucena, Daniela; Vivancos Prellezo, Ana; Shomroni, Orr; Zafar, Saima; Schmitz, Matthias; Michel, Uwe; Fernández Borges, Natalia; Andreóletti, Olivier; del Río, José Antonio; Díez Antón, Juana, 1962-; Fischer, André; Bonn, Stefan; Sklaviadis, Theodoros K.; Torres, Juan María; Ferrer, Isidre; Zerr, Inga (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2018)
    Increasing evidence indicates that microRNAs (miRNAs) are contributing factors to neurodegeneration. Alterations in miRNA signatures have been reported in several neurodegenerative dementias, but data in prion diseases are ...
