We have recently described a bi-directional bulk flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) (coined 'the CSF rebound mechanism') after the use of high-volume caudal block in infants, which may explain the secondary longitudinal spread of the block. If important the initial cephalad transfer of CSF should be of such a magnitude that ...

Neuronal signaling in the CNS depends on the microenvironment around synapses and axons. To prevent fluctuations in blood composition affecting the interstitial fluid and CSF, two barriers, the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and blood-CSF barrier (BCSFB), are interposed between the blood and the brain/CSF compartment. Brain capillary endothelial cells (ECs) constitute ...

Regulation of cellular Cu homeostasis involves Cu-transporting ATPases (Cu-ATPases), i.e., ATP7A and ATP7B. The question as to how these Cu-ATPases in brain barrier systems transport Cu, i.e., toward brain parenchyma, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), or blood, remained unanswered. This study was designed to characterize roles of Cu-ATPases in regulating Cu transport ...

Decreased amyloid β (Aβ) clearance from the brain to blood might play a key role in the development of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Aβ is normally bound to and transported by albumin in blood, thus possibly maintaining constant concentration of free Aβ in the blood. We therefore hypothesized that decreased blood ...
