Intrastriatal infusion of amiloride and 12-0-tetradeconoyl phorbol-13-acetate (TPA) in 6-OHDA lesioned rats increased the apomorphine (APO)-induced rotation. This behavioral effect occurred in the presence of a decrease in the density and an increase in the affinity of D2 dopamine receptors in the striatum. There was an associated decrease in the number of(More)
