Early restriction of nutrients during the perinatal period has marked repercussions on CNS ontogeny, leading to impaired functions. This study investigated the effects of pre- and postnatal (up to 75 days) undernutrition (diet: 8% protein; normonourished group: 25% protein) on some glutamatergic and behavioral parameters of rats. Undernutrition reduced: (i)(More)
We have investigated the glycine, serine and leucine metabolism in slices of various rat brain regions of 14-day-old or adult rats, using [1-14C]glycine, [2-14C]glycine, L-[3-14C]serine and L-[U-14C]leucine. We showed that the [1-14C]glycine oxidation to CO2 in all regions studied occurs almost exclusively through its cleavage system (GCS) in brains of both(More)
We have studied the developmental changes of glucose, mannose, fructose and galactose metabolism in rat cerebral cortex. As the animals aged, glucose, mannose and fructose oxidation to CO2 increased, whereas galactose oxidation decreased. Lipid synthesis from glucose and fructose also increased with age, that from mannose decreased and galactose did not(More)
Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is not only a widely used species in the Fish Embryo Toxicity (FET) test but also an emerging model in behavioural ecotoxicology. By using automatic behaviour tracking technology, locomotion of developing zebrafish (ZF) larvae can be accurately recorded and potentially used in an ecotoxicological context to detect toxicant-induced(More)
