Flavagline Synthetic Derivative Induces Senescence in Glioblastoma Cancer Cells without Being Toxic to Healthy Astrocytes

Investigators explored the effect of FL3 in glioblastoma cells under normoxia and hypoxia conditions. They indicated that this synthetic flavagline inhibits cell proliferation and induced senescence in glioblastoma cells cultured under both conditions.

A Widespread Neurogenic Potential of Neocortical Astrocytes Is Induced by Injury

Scientists showed that notch signaling-deficient astrocytes could generate new neurons after injury. Using single-cell RNA sequencing, they found that, when notch signaling was blocked, astrocytes transitioned to a neural stem cell-like state.

hUC-MSCs Ameliorated CUMS-Induced Depression by Modulating Complement C3 Signaling-Mediated Microglial Polarization during Astrocyte-Microglia Crosstalk

Human umbilical cord (hUC)-MSCs were administered into chronic unpredictable mild stress model mice through the tail vein once a week for four weeks. After the administration of hUC-MSCs, the depression-like and anxiety-like phenotypes, neuronal histopathology, synaptic-related protein expression and inflammatory index of the mice were assessed.

N-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids Promote Astrocyte Differentiation and Neurotrophin Production Independent of cAMP in Patient-Derived Neural Stem Cells

iPSC-derived neuronal stem cell lines were generated from individuals with major depressive disorder. Astrocytes differentiated from patient-derived neuronal stem cells were verified by GFAP and cells were treated with eicosapentaenoic acid, docosahexaenoic acid or stearic acid.
