Vahidnia A, van der Straaten R, Romijn F, Van Pelt J, van der Voet G, de Wolff F. Mechanism of arsenic-induced neurotoxicity may be explained through cleavage of p35 to p25 by calpain. Toxicol In Vitro. 2008;22:682-7 pubmed publisher
..These results suggest that cleavage of p35 to p25 by calpain, probably As-induced Ca2+-influx, may explain the mechanism by which arsenic induces its neurotoxic effects. ..

..Our m-PCR showed excellent concordance with culture results in 475 clinical samples. Through the rapid diagnosis by our m-PCR, clinicians are able to initiate adequate antimycotic therapy much earlier. ..

..In addition, hyperphosphorylation of NF-L and MAP-tau by As also contribute to destabilization and disruption of the cytoskeletal framework, which eventually may lead to axonal degeneration. ..
