In Vitro Neurotoxicology: Principles and Challenges (Methods in Pharmacology and Toxicology)

Well-respected leaders within the box of in vitro neurotoxicology take a clean examine their very own and other's paintings, seriously and relatively studying it throughout experimental structures and toxicants, and synthesizing crucial ideas for in vitro neurotoxicity trying out. Neurotoxicants of importance to human future health are emphasised, specifically these for which metabolism and dose-responses are good good studied either in vivo and in vitro: lead, mercury, organophosphorous pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls and dioxin, ethanol, and endogenous proteins.

Since DC are responsive to endogenous proteins and other ligands like DNA or RNA released from damaged or necrotic cells, it is thus not the infectious non-self or foreign invader that often is sensed and activates DC, but the “danger” signal, hence the gradual acceptance and growing interest in the concept of the “danger hypothesis”. (138–142) Prior work by others has identified Hsp60 and Hsp70 as powerful endogenous ligands and activators of DC. (143–145) On exposure to various PM species, we have shown dependence on both the TLR4 and TLR2 pathways of cellular activation and the adaptor protein MyD88 using targeted gene knockout mouse models.

As such, DC reside in this tissue (as well as other mucosal immune sites) in an immature state of “primed” functional activation. Dendritic cells in this state of readiness are extremely efficient at taking up exogenous soluble and particulate materials by endocytic, phagocytic and macropinocytic uptake mechanisms. Additionally, since DC display an evolutionary conserved repertoire of microbial pattern-recognition receptors termed toll-like receptors (TLRs) on their cell surface as well as TLRs that are found in the cytoplasm and associated with early and late endosomal compartments, they are armed with an impressive array of information-management and rapid-response pathways.
