Neurotransmitter focused course

Course of the Recordati Rare Diseases Foundation This course is aimed at clinicians with a basic knowledge of inborn errors of neurotransmitter, pterin and folate metabolisms who are working a metabolic or child neurology clinic. Both adult and childhood disease will be covered so it is suitable for practitioners in both areas. This course is […]

Los protones también son neurotransmisores

Investigaciones recientes llevadas a cabo por Du y colaboradores, muestran que los protones cumplen criterios para ser considerados neurotransmisores. Éstos son liberados desde la neurona presináptica y activan un tipo especial de receptores post-sinápticos, los canales iónicos sensibles al medio ácido, o ASICs (acidsensing ion channels). Se trata de canales permeables al Na+ y al Ca2+ que son activados por la acidosis extracelular.

De Neu: Asociación pacientes defectos ntransmisores

Las asociaciones de pacientes realizan tareas de enorme interés. En el campo de las enfermedades raras, éstas parecen aún más necesarias. Se está creando una asociación de pacientes y familiares afectos de enfermedades de los neurotransmisores (errores congénitos del metabolismo de los neurotransmisores). Su nombre es: De Neu. Asociación De Enfermedades de los Neurotransmisores. Estas […]
