Cajal-Retzius cell loss and amyloidosis in Alzheimer's disease

06.05.2014

Cajal-Retzius cells are reelin-secreting neurons in the marginal zone of the neocortex and hippocampus.

However, the relationship between Cajal-Retzius cells and Alzheimer's disease is unknown.


Cajal-Retzius cells were observed in the molecular layer of the dentate gyrus as early as embryonic day 16.5, and were densely concentrated in the molecular layer of the dentate gyrus (immunohistochemical analysis).

Dr. Jinbo Deng and team from Henan University in China revealed that the number of Cajal-Retzius cells markedly reduced with age in both wild type and in mice over-expressing the Swedish double mutant form of amyloid precursor protein 695 (transgenic (Tg) 2576 mice).

The decline in Cajal-Retzius cells in Tg2576 mice was found to occur concomitantly with the onset of Alzheimer's disease amyloid pathology and related behavioral defcits.

Overall, these data, published in the Neural Regeneration Research (Vol. 9, No. 4, 2014), indicated that Cajal-Retzius cell loss occurred with the onset and development of Alzheimer's disease.

Im Focus: Viaducts with wind turbines, the new renewable energy source

Wind turbines could be installed under some of the biggest bridges on the road network to produce electricity. So it is confirmed by calculations carried out by a European researchers team, that have taken a viaduct in the Canary Islands as a reference. This concept could be applied in heavily built-up territories or natural areas with new constructions limitations.

The Juncal Viaduct, in Gran Canaria, has served as a reference for Spanish and British researchers to verify that the wind blowing between the pillars on this...
