Exposure to aluminum (Al) produces neurotoxic effects in humans. However, the molecular mechanism of Al neurotoxicity remains unknown. Al interferes with glutamatergic neurotransmission and impairs(More)
In primary cultures of cerebellar neurons glutamate neurotoxicity is mainly mediated by activation of the NMDA receptor, which allows the entry of Ca2+ and Na+ into the neuron. To maintain Na+(More)
Carnitine prevents acute ammonia toxicity in animals. We propose that acute ammonia toxicity is mediated by activation of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors and have shown that carnitine prevents(More)
