Using Fos protein immunohistochemistry, we have studied the effects of acute nicotine (0.5 mg/kg s.c.) and nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) antagonists in eleven rat brain areas. Acute nicotine elevated Fos-like immunostaining (Fos IS) significantly in all studied areas except the medial prefrontal cortex. Nicotine increased the Fos IS in cortical,(More)
In this study, we investigated the hypothesis that the pro-oxidative properties of Angeli's salt (AS), a nitroxyl anion (HNO/NO-) releasing compound, cause neurotoxicity in dopaminergic neurons. The pro-oxidative properties were demonstrated in vitro by measuring hydroxylation products of salicylate and peroxidation of lipids under various redox conditions.(More)
