Certain products of tryptophan metabolism interact with excitatory amino acid receptors to produce or protect against excitotoxicity. In this study, the action of several tryptophan metabolites, yielded by the kynurenine pathway, on cortical cholinergic toxicity was evaluated following focal injection into the rat nucleus basalis magnocellularis (nbM).(More)
It has recently been demonstrated that kynurenic acid (KYN), an endogenous tryptophan metabolite, provides almost complete protection against the neurotoxic and mnemonic effects of another tryptophan metabolite quinolinic acid (QUIN) on the cell bodies of the nucleus basalis magnocellularis (nbm). The present study further investigated whether unilateral(More)
Diosgenin is a steroidal sapogenin present in fenugreek and Dioscorea spp. as glycosides (saponins). Diosgenin has already been reported to inhibit osteoclastogenesis and to stimulate osteogenic activity of osteoblastic cells in vitro, and to exert some antiosteoporotic effects in rats in vivo. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of(More)
