Uric Acid Enhances Neurogenesis in a Parkinsonian Model by Remodeling Mitochondria

Uric Acid Enhances Neurogenesis in a Parkinsonian Model by Remodeling Mitochondria
Front Aging Neurosci. 2022 Jun 2;14:851711. doi: 10.3389/fnagi.2022.851711. eCollection 2022.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Adult neurogenesis is the process of generating new neurons to enter neural circuits and differentiate into functional neurons. However, it is significantly reduced in Parkinson's disease (PD). Uric acid (UA), a natural antioxidant, has neuroprotective properties in patients with PD. This study aimed to investigate whether UA would enhance neurogenesis ... read more
