The present experiment was carried out to determine the effectiveness of nitric oxide synthase inhibitors: 7-nitroindazole and aminoguanidine in modulating the toxicity of aluminium chloride on acetylcholine esterase activity, as well as behavioural and morphological changes of Wistar rats. For biochemical analysis the animals were killed 10 min, 3 h, 3(More)
We investigated the influence of a non-specific nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitor, N-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME), on brain nitrite concentration and acetylcholine esterase activity in AlCl3-treated Wistar rats. Animals were killed 10 min, three hours, three days and 30 days after the treatment and hippocampus and basal forebrain were removed.(More)
The present experiments were done to determine the effectiveness of a non-specific nitric oxide synthase inhibitor, N-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME), on oxidative stress parameters induced by aluminium chloride (AlCl(3)) intrahippocampal injections in Wistar rats. Animals were sacrificed 3 h and 30 d after treatments, heads were immediately frozen(More)
Choline and methionine are precursors of acetylcholine, whose hydrolysis is catalyzed by acetylcholinesterase (AChE). Considering the possibility of their common deficiency, we investigated the influence of methionine-choline deprivation on AChE activity in liver and various brain regions (hypothalamus, hippocampus, cerebral cortex and striatum) in mice fed(More)

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Aluminum (Al) toxicity is closely linked to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). This experimental study was aimed to investigate the active avoidance behaviour of rats after intrahippocampal injection of Al, and biochemical and immunohistochemical changes in three bilateral brain structures namely, forebrain cortex (FBCx),(More)
In the present study we investigated the cytochrome C oxidase (CO) activity and nitric oxide synthase (NOS) isoenzyme expression after intrahippocampal AlCl3 application in selective vulnerable brain structures. A single dose of AlCl3 was applied in the CA1 sector of rats hippocampus. For biochemical analysis, the animals were killed 10 min and three days(More)
Nitric oxide (NO), a potential candidate for a modulator of convulsive activity, is a mediator in several pathological events in the central nervous system. The polyamines, spermidine (Spd) and spermine, are neuromodulators influencing the metabolism of L-arginine and NO production. Here we examined the effects of Spd on NO production and arginase activity(More)
