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)
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)
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)
