Investigators found that DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) in oxygen/glucose-deprived neurons spatiotemporally correlated with the up-regulation of WRAP53 (WD40-encoding p53-antisense RNA), which translocated to the nucleus to activate the DSB repair response.

Investigators report that the mitochondrial transplantation ameliorated the reperfusion/ischemia-induced damages as reflected by declined blood creatine phosphokinase level, abolished apoptosis, decreased astroglyosis and microglia activation, reduced infarct size, and improved motor function.

The authors discuss the cellular and functional alterations upon ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) especially in aging hearts. They propose that mitochondria are the primary source of reactive oxygen species that contribute to I/R injury in aged hearts. Then, they highlight the cardiomyocyte protection of the age-related proteins Sirtuin1 and Sirtuin1 in response to I/R injury, and discuss their modulation of cardiac metabolism and the inflammatory reaction that is involved in ROS formation.
Researchers elucidated the neuroprotective effects of a combination of mannitol pretreatment and stem cell transplantation on stroke-induced neural injury.
