Knowledge Record, Transmission, and Collection
Encyclopedia runs an entries collection to collect entries on specific topics. The aim is to build a community of authors and readers to record and popularize knowledge, and develop new ideas and research directions. Entries collections are led by Academic Editors, who are experts in the subject. Entries published in an entries collection will be collected together on a dedicated page of the Encyclopedia platform.

Neuroinflammation
Academic Editor: Vittorio Gentile
Number of Entries: 1

Neuroinflammation seems to play a pivotal role in various chronic neurodegenerative diseases, characterized also by the pathogenetic accumulation of specific protein aggregates. Several of these proteins have been shown to be substrates of transglutaminases, calcium-dependent enzymes that catalyze protein crosslinking reactions. Recently, it has been demonstrated that transglutaminase  2 (TG2), a member of the transglutaminase enzymes family,  may also be involved in molecular mechanisms underlying inflammation. In the central nervous system, microglia and astrocytes are the cell types mainly involved  in the inflammatory process. The topic suggested is focused on the increases of TG2 protein expression and enzyme activity that occur in neuronal and in non neuronal cells, such as  glial, microglial and monocyte cells in response to inflammatory stimuli.
