柯博士的研究发现了氧化代谢紊乱、氧自由基产生增加、免疫/炎症反应是氧化代谢紊乱引起的神经元死亡的重要病理生理过程；内质网应激、未折叠和错误折叠蛋白累积是参与氧化代谢紊乱引起的神经元死亡的主要细胞机制。氧化代谢紊乱通过调节RNA编辑参与代谢型谷氨酸受体mRNA剪切过程，从而改变神经元代谢型谷氨酸受体的钙通透能力、引起细胞钙调节功能紊乱，导致神经元死亡。证实神经元产生的单核细胞趋化因子，是氧化代谢紊乱诱发免疫/炎症反应的开关分子。发现氧化代谢紊乱可以通过增强β分泌酶的活性增加β淀粉样蛋白的产生，从而加速神经元病变的发展过程。维生素B1缺乏可增加淀粉样蛋白的产生，亚临床维生素B1缺乏是老年性痴呆的危险因素之一。复方中药可明显改善AD模型动物的学习记忆能力，减少老年斑的形成，抑制炎症反应。已在Neurobiol Aging, J Immunol, J Neurochem, J.

Dr. KE Zunji, Vice Dean
KE Zunji, Ph.D., Doctoral student supervisor;
Vice Dean of Academy of Integrative Chinese and Western Medicine, Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine;
Director of the Neuroscience Research Center, Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine;
Former postdoctoral researcher at the Shanghai Brain Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the University of Illinois at Chicago and the Cornell University Weill Medical College.
Researcher at the Institute of Nutrition and Health of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the leader of the NeuroTrition Research Group since 2003 to 2014.
Main research interests: 1) Integrative Chinese and Western medicine to prevent and treat neurodegenerative diseases; 2) Biological mechanisms ofneuronal cell death in the aging brain; 3) Mechanisms of external factors such as alcohol affecting the development and aging of the nervous system .
Dr. KE found that disorders of oxidative metabolism, increased production of oxygen free radicals, and immune-inflammatory responses are important pathophysiological processes of neuronal death caused by oxidative metabolic disorders, in which endoplasmic reticulum stress, unfolded, and misfolded protein accumulation are involved in the main cellular mechanism of neuronal death caused by oxidative metabolic disorders. Disorders of oxidative metabolism are involved in the metabotropic glutamate receptor mRNA cleavage through regulating RNA editing, thereby altering the calcium permeability of neuronal metabotropic glutamate receptors, causing intracellular calcium dysregulation and leading to neuronal cell death. It is confirmed that the monocyte chemotactic factors expressed by neurons are the molecular switch that induces an immune-inflammatory response caused by oxidative metabolism disorders. It was found that disorders of oxidative metabolism can increase the production of β-amyloid by enhancing the activity of β-secretase, thereby accelerating neurodegeneration. Vitamin B1 deficiency increases amyloid production, and subclinical vitamin B1 deficiency is one of the risk factors for Alzheimer's disease. Compound Chinese medicine can significantly improve the learning and memory skills of animal models of Alzheimer’s disease, reduce the formation of senile plaques, and inhibit the inflammatory response. Dr. KE has two patents and published more than 80 articles in Neurobiol Aging, J Immunol, J Neurochem, J. Neuropath. Exp. Neurol and J. Biol. Chem ,etc.
