Article
Peroxiredoxin 6 (PRDX6) is expressed throughout the brain, including the hippocampus, where it plays a potential role in synaptic regulation and forming emotional and spatial memories. PRDX6 is predominantly detected in the female mouse's hippocampus; thus, we investigate the effect of the Prdx6 gene on behavioral phenotypes and synaptic functions...

Fear dysregulation is one of the symptoms found in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) patients. The functional abnormality of the hippocampus is known to be implicated in the development of such pathology. Peroxiredoxin 6 (PRDX6) belongs to the peroxiredoxin family. This antioxidant enzyme is expressed throughout the brain, including the hippoca...
Article
The triple transgenic Alzheimer’s disease (3xTg-AD) strain is a common mouse model used for studying the pathology and mechanism of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The 3xTg-AD strain exhibits two hallmarks of AD, amyloid beta (Aβ) and neurofibrillary tangles. Several studies using different gender and age of 3xTg-AD mice to investigate their behavior phe...

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by an excessive inflammatory response and impaired memory retrieval, including spatial memory, recognition memory, and emotional memory. Acquisition and retrieval of fear memory help one avoid dangers and natural threats. Thus, it is crucial for survival. AD patients with impaire...

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease characterized by cognitive deficits. Two hallmarks of AD that cause chronic inflammation and lead to neuronal dysfunction and damage are tau tangles and amyloid plaques. Microglial cells, the primary immune cells of the central nervous system, maintain a homeostatic active/inactive...
Article

The relationship between neuronal inflammation and impairment of memory retrieval is not well established, partially because of the lack of appropriate compound to test this hypothesis. Here we investigated effects of a novel coral‐derived compound on hippocampal inflammation markers and contextual fear memory retrieval using a triple‐transgenic AD...

Peroxiredoxin 6 (PRDX6) is a multifunctional enzyme expressed in many organs including the brain. It is known to participate in many psychiatric functions, but its role in fear memory is unknown. The present study demonstrates that PRDX6 plays a critical role in the regulation of fear response. Using Prdx6 knockout (Prdx6-/-) mice, we identified th...

Question
Is there any difference in performing the novel object recognition test in open arena or in Y-Maze or in multiple chambers? Do they have different purpose?
