What is it about?

We found that the expression levels of pp38 and p62 are up-regulatedin LPS-induced BV2 cells and the MPTP-induced PD model. Meanwhile, miR-124 could suppress the secretion of proinflammatory mediators by targeting 62/p38 expression and promote autophagy in the inflammatory pathogenesis of PD.

Why is it important?

Our data suggest that miR-124 can inhibit the neuroinflammation that occurs during the development of PD and implicate miR-124 as a potential therapeutic target for regulating the inflammatory response in PD.
