Various studies suggest that proteolytic activity may be involved in a number of neurodegenerative disorders, including stroke and seizure. In this report, we examined the role of tryptic serine proteases, plasminogen activators (PAs), in the evolution of a neurodegenerative disease. Transgenic mice overexpressing an axonally secreted inhibitor of serine proteases (neuroserpin) were crossed with mice characterized by a “dying-back” motor neuron disease [progressive motor neuronopathy (pmn/pmn)]. Compared with pmn/pmn mice that showed an increase in PA activity, double mutant mice had decreased PA activity in sciatic nerves and spinal cord; their lifespan was increased by 50%, their motor behavior was stabilized, and histological analysis revealed increased numbers of myelinated axons and rescue of motoneuron number and size. This is the first report showing that a class of serine proteases (PAs) may be involved in the pathogenesis of a motor neuron disease and more specifically in axonal degeneration. Inhibiting serine proteases could offer a new strategy for delaying these disorders.
Presentation

The new SEDACOM 2.0 version is a very easy, convenient and cost-saving data transfer software providing an ideal environment for visualizing the registered data on a computer and exporting them in a format that simplifies any further post-analysis processes. SEDACOM increases the functionalities of the devices, saving and listing automatically all the data of the current or stored sessions.

Operating principle

The name of SEDACOM comes from SErial DAta COMmunication due to the direct communication of the BIOSEB devices to the computer through an RS232 serial port communication. Nowadays, some optional accessories are offered for allowing the use of the USB technology making possible running experiment on a laptop, if requested.

SEDACOM can acquire data from up to 9 devices at the same time, limited exclusively by the number of series ports available on the computer. An additional hub or board with serial ports (not included) can be installed to expand the number of connections. SEDACOM will automatically recognize the number of systems connected.

Parameters Measured

• Subject & Session data
• Numerical data tables with all the values and parameters generated by the BIOSEB devices

Domains of application

SEDACOM can be used with a wide range of devices from several lines of BIOSEB products for measuring physiology and behaviour in small laboratory animals (motor activity, pain sensitivity, body temperature, memory etc.).
You can use it with, for example:
ELECTRONIC VON FREY
HOT-PLATE
IR ACTIMETER
NON-INVASIVE BLOOD PRESSURE
PASSIVE AVOIDANCE BOX
PLETHYSMOMETER
RAT PAW PRESSURE
ROTA-ROD
ROTAMETER
SHUTTLE BOX
TAIL-FLICK METER
TREADMILL

Key features:

• Polyvalent software
• RS232/USB communication
• New Runtime panels using tabular structure for saving time in the data post-analysis process
• New editable fields for Subjects and Groups information
• The data can be saved in a new experimental file (SED) and opened later for adding a new set of data
• Direct exportation to Excel, txt and htm formats for further data processing, statistics and presentation
• Configure & control your device directly from SEDACOM (available for some devices: IR actimeter, Treadmill…)
• New USB Installation and License key (everything included in 1 USB key)
• Trial version available!

You will find more details on the SEDACOM in asking for the user manual.
