Exposure to pesticides may be a risk factor for Parkinson's disease based on epidemiologic data in humans, animal models and in vitro studies. Different dithiocarbamate pesticides potentiate the toxicity of both 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine and paraquat in mouse models of Parkinsonism by an unknown mechanism. This study examined the effects(More)
Modern cell biologists typically use reporter genes either alone or co-expressed with a protein of interest to facilitate the localization or quantification of protein expression. Our work demonstrates that reporter genes should be used cautiously, as several common reporter gene products are toxic to primary cortical neuronal cultures. We used the herpes(More)
