Cannabidiol-Enriched Extract Reduced the Cognitive Impairment but Not the Epileptic Seizures in a Lafora Disease Animal Model

Introduction: LaFora Disease (LD) is a rare form of progressive infantile epilepsy where rapid neurological damage that occurs as the disease advances, which causes the patient to a vegetative state and then die, usually within the first decade of the onset of illness. Based on the capacity of the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) to modulate several cellular processes commonly altered in many neurodegenerative processes, as well as the antiepileptic properties of certain natural cannabinoids, the aim of this study was to evaluate the role of ECS in LD developments.

Materials and Methods: We tested whether natural cannabis extract highly enriched in cannabidiol (CBD) may be effective in controlling the pathological phenotype master knockout (KO) mice as an animal model LD. Results: Our results show for the first time that changes in the ECS occurred during the evolution of LD, especially at the level of CB1, CB2, and G protein-coupled receptor-coupled 55 (GPR55) receptor expression, and that the extract CBD-enriched (CBDext) is able to reduce interference cognitive demonstrated by master KO mice.

However, contrary to what has previously been reported for other types of refractory epilepsy in childhood, CBD-enriched extract did not reduce the severity of epileptic seizures induced in animal models of LD. Conclusion: In summary, this study revealed that the ECS may play a role in the LD and that the CBD-enriched extract partially alleviate dementia like phenotype, but did not increase susceptibility to epileptic seizures, exhibited by live animals as disease models -threatening.

abnormal carbohydrate structure known as polyglucosan body (PGBs) associated with neurological disorders, glycogen storage disease (GSDs), and aging. A hallmark of the disease GSD LaFora (LD), a fatal epilepsy in children caused by recessive mutations in EPM2A or EPM2B gene, which PGBs cytoplasm known as LaFora body (LBS). LBS result from aberrant glycogen metabolism and disease progression drive. They are abundant in the brain, muscles and heart patients and Epm2a LD – / – and Epm2b – / – mice. LBS and histologically PGBs remind starch, carbohydrates semicrystalline synthesized for the storage of glucose in the plant.

In this study, we define the architecture LB, tissue-specific differences, and dynamics. We propose a model for how small polyglucosans aggregate to form LBS. LBS is very similar to PGBs aging and other neurological disorders, so this research has direct relevance to the general understanding of the structure and formation PGB.

Progressive myoclonic epilepsies (PMEs) is a rare genetic disorder of various age groups (infants, children, youth, or adult-onset) is characterized by progressive myoclonus, epileptic seizures and in most cases, dementia and ataxia. Death is the worst possible outcome.

Genetic research has led to the identification of many genes culprit, and others are expected to be found. PMEs including disease Unverricht-Lundborg (ULD), disease LaFora (LD), lipofuscinoses ceroid neuronal, sialidosis type I, epilepsy myoclonus and fiber red ragged (MERRF), Gaucher disease type 3, dentatorubral-pallidoluysian atrophy (DRPLA), and other rare forms of PMEs.

Monkeypox Virus Real Time PCR Kit

ZD-0076-01 25 tests/kit Ask for price
Description: Monkeypox virus is the virus that causes the disease monkeypox in both humans and animals. Monkeypox virus is an Orthopoxvirus, a genus of the family Poxviridae that contains other viral species that target mammals. The virus is mainly found in tropical rainforest regions of central and West Africa. The primary route of infection is thought to be contact with the infected animals or their bodily fluids. The genome is not segmented and contains a single molecule of linear double-stranded DNA, 185000 nucleotides long. The Monkeypox Virus real time PCR Kit contains a specific ready-to-use system for the detection of the Monkeypox Virusthrough polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in the real-time PCR system. The master contains reagents and enzymes for the specific amplification of the Monkeypox Virus DNA. Fluorescence is emitted and measured by the real time systems ́ optical unit during the PCR. The detection of amplified Monkeypox Virus DNA fragment is performed in fluorimeter channel 530nm with the fluorescent quencher BHQ1. DNA extraction buffer is available in the kit and serum or lesion exudate samples are used for the extraction of the DNA. In addition, the kit contains a system to identify possible PCR inhibition by measuring the 560nm fluorescence of the internal control (IC). An external positive control defined as 1×10^7 copies/ml is supplied which allow the determination of the gene load.
