The aim of this study was to assess the effect of the β-amyloid fragment Aβ(25-35) on mitochondrial structure and function and on the expression of proteins associated with the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (MPTP) in rat hippocampal neurons. Ninety clean-grade Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly assigned to six groups (n = 15 per group).(More)
Atrazine (ATR) is a widely used herbicide, although it is potentially ecotoxic. Increasing evidence indicates that ATR plays a critical role in inducing physiological changes to the endocrine and reproductive systems, and further may affect the nigrostriatal dopaminergic system in the diencephalon, resulting in altered dopamine (DA) levels in the striatum,(More)
The herbicide, atrazine (ATR), is used worldwide and its contamination in the environment has resulted in documented human exposure. It has also been shown that ATR results in dopaminergic neurotoxicity, however, few studies have investigated the long-term effects of ATR following in utero exposure. Therefore, we evaluated the effects of ATR exposure in(More)
BACKGROUND Simazine is a triazine herbicide used worldwide in both agricultural and non-agricultural fields that is frequently detected in surface water and groundwater. Due to its widespread use, an increasing amount of research has focused on the potentially serious environmental and health risks. MATERIAL AND METHODS We used Western blotting and(More)
Paraquat and maneb are identified environmental pollutants. Combined exposure to paraquat and maneb is a latent risk factor for many diseases, particularly those of the central nervous system, including Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. Hippocampus is the key structure in memory formation and babies are more sensitive to environmental stimuli(More)
