Caghan Kizil's group at the Center for Regenerative Therapies at TU Dresden (CRTD), has discovered that failure of the so-called glial
cells in the brain triggers the epileptic seizures.
But all of the subjects showed a reduced response to mechanical pain when the glial
complex was turned off.
"But what we show now is that pain can also be started in these glial
cells help develop and protect neuron function, too many glia cells disturb connectivity between neurons.
They were surprised to find that the cells carrying CD34 turn into glial
"In contrast," he adds, "glial
cells, which gather around damaged brain tissue, can proliferate after brain injury." In their study paper, he and his team explain how glial
cells form scars that protect the neurons from further injury
Researchers observed greater glial
cell activation in the brains of fibromyalgia patients compared with people who did not have fibromyalgia.
GFAP, first described by Amico Bignami  is an intracytoplasmic intermediate filament protein specific for the cytoskeleton of glial
The differential diagnoses primarily include lymphovascular malformations, encephalocele, and teratomas; glial
heterotopias can be differentiated from other uncommon congenital pharyngeal masses in children with the guidance of radiologic and especially histopathologic examinations.
These are messenger substances produced by the body that act as a kind of brake signal: They prevent the inflammatory activity of the glial
cells," explained researcher Andras Bilkei-Gorzo.
The researchers found that myelin basic protein and glial
fibrillary acidic protein levels were elevated at baseline and through consolidation.
