    ..In contrast, LC3 immunoreactivity was very weak in neurons. Therefore, it can be assumed that astrocytes show a higher capability than neurons to cope with stress and exhibit a stronger autophagic response. ..

    Vittorio Farina
    Department of Animal Biology, University of Sassari, Italy
    Funct Neurol 19:181-4. 2004
    ..Although transcallosal neurons are usually considered poorly regenerative, their axotomy may therefore induce reactive events...

    Sergio Gadau
    Department of Animal Biology, University of Sassari, Italy
    Neuro Endocrinol Lett 30:515-24. 2009
    ..In the present work attention has been focused on the possible nitrosative effect of hyperglycemia on microtubular network of neuroblastoma and glioma mortalized cell lines, testing the possible neuroprotective effect of testosterone...
