    ..These findings support the supposition that cytosolic labile zinc accumulation is an indicator of degenerating dopaminergic neurons in animal models of Parkinson's disease. ..

    ..Therefore, indomethacin preconditioning can modulate intracellular zinc availability, contributing to ischemic tolerance in the brain after stroke. ..

    ..This clinical study suggests significant associations between serum metal levels and PD risk or essential clinical features, demonstrating the possible roles of metals in PD pathogenesis or symptom development. ..

    ..These results suggest that the assembled Abeta42 may promote upregulation of the tPA/plasminogen proteolytic system, which can modulate the deposition of amyloid plaques in vivo. ..

    ..Expression of various inflammatory mediator molecules in both hemispheres was markedly suppressed by ibudilast. We conclude that ibudilast exerts beneficial effects against acute brain ischemia in an animal model. ..

    ..Thus, the physiological activity of free zinc in the normal brain might largely depend on the pool of synaptic vesicle zinc that is determined by ZnT3. ..
