Rubio N, Arevalo M, Cerciat M, Sanz Rodriguez F, Unkila M, Garcia Segura L. Theiler's virus infection provokes the overexpression of genes coding for the chemokine Ip10 (CXCL10) in SJL/J murine astrocytes, which can be inhibited by modulators of estrogen receptors. J Neurovirol. 2014;20:485-95 pubmed publisher
..Finally, this in vitro inflammation model was fully inhibited by 17?-estradiol and four selective estrogen receptor modulators, as demonstrated by ELISA and qPCR. ..

..Here we demonstrate that one of the mechanisms triggered by TMEV infection of astrocytes is the up-regulation of proteins related to GTP metabolism, one important signal transduction system in mammalian cells. ..
Rubio N, Cerciat M, Unkila M, Garcia Segura L, Arevalo M. An in vitro experimental model of neuroinflammation: the induction of interleukin-6 in murine astrocytes infected with Theiler's murine encephalomyelitis virus, and its inhibition by oestrogenic receptor modulators. Immunology. 2011;133:360-9 pubmed publisher
..Finally, this in vitro neuroinflammation model was fully inhibited, as demonstrated by ELISA and qPCR, by five selective oestrogen receptor modulators. ..
Rubio N, Sanz Rodriguez F. Induction of the CXCL1 (KC) chemokine in mouse astrocytes by infection with the murine encephalomyelitis virus of Theiler. Virology. 2007;358:98-108 pubmed
..As no CXCL1 induction can be detected neither in cultured BALB/c astrocytes nor in nervous tissue, we propose an important role for CXCL1 in this experimental model of multiple sclerosis as a chemoattractant of destructive immune cells. ..
Rubio N, Sanz Rodriguez F. Overexpression of caspase 1 in apoptosis-resistant astrocytes infected with the BeAn Theiler's virus. J Neurovirol. 2016;22:316-26 pubmed publisher
..The direct experimental evidence that the protection effect demonstrated in this article was mediated by caspase 1, is provided by the fact that its specific inhibitor Z-WEHD-FMK induced de novo apoptotic death. ..

..Conversely, treatment with a dose of 10 U/ml induced cells proliferation in astrocytic cells as measured by (3)H-thymidine incorporation. ..
Rubio N, Martìn Clemente B. Binding of adenovirus to its receptors in mouse astrocytes induces c-fos proto-oncogene and apoptosis. Virology. 2002;297:211-9 pubmed
..The purpose of our study was to ascertain the potential for adenovirus as a gene therapy vector for neural disorders caused by astrocyte dysfunctions. ..
Rubio N, Rodriguez R, Arevalo M. In vitro myelination by oligodendrocyte precursor cells transfected with the neurotrophin-3 gene. Glia. 2004;47:78-87 pubmed
..We discuss the future use of this transfected cells in regeneration and functional recovery in experimental models of multiple sclerosis. ..
Rubio N, Sanz Rodriguez F, Lipton H. Theiler's virus induces the MIP-2 chemokine (CXCL2) in astrocytes from genetically susceptible but not from resistant mouse strains. Cell Immunol. 2006;239:31-40 pubmed
..This suggest an role for this chemokine in attracting immune cells within the CNS, which in turn, might trigger demyelination in this experimental model of MS. ..
