An automated fluorescence method for the detection of neuronal cell death by necrosis and apoptosis with sequential acridine orange (AO) and ethidium bromide (EB) staining using confocal microscopy is described. Since cell nuclei during apoptosis become acidic, AO staining was utilized to distinguish live neurons from neurons undergoing apoptosis, using the(More)
The ratio of necrosis to apoptosis and the mechanisms of apoptosis were studied during neurodegeneration induced by glutamate and selective agonists of glutamate receptors - N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) and kainate. Experiments were performed on primary cultures (seven days in vitro) of rat cerebral cortex neurons. Apoptosis and necrosis were identified(More)
A contribution of necrosis and apoptotis as well as the particular apoptosis pathways in neuro-degeneration induced by glutamate and selective glutamate receptor agonists, NMDA and kainate, were studied. In experiments on primary neuron cultures of 7 days in vitro from embryonic rat cortex, the necrosis and apoptosis were recognized using vital fluorescence(More)
