The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of gender difference in the 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-treated animal model of Parkinson's disease (PD). In the present study, we investigated the time-dependent alterations of dopamine and its metabolites, striatal tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) protein, dopamine transporter (DAT)(More)
Emerging evidence shows a beneficial effect of estrogens for Parkinson's disease, yet the exact potency of these compounds implicated remain obscured. In this study, we investigated the neuroprotective effect of 17beta-estradiol and estrone against 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-induced striatal toxicity in mice. The neuroprotective(More)
A functional model of an artifact shows an important part of designer's intention. A taxonomy of generic functions plays a crucial role in describing such functional models. Improving interoperability among functional models of different functional taxonomies facilitates sharing functional models among designers in organizations. The mapping between the(More)
