A complete explanation of the neurotoxicity that follows kainic acid (KA) injection into the rat striatum is lacking. An assessment of the chronological course after intrastriatal KA injection of the activities of enzymes preferentially concentrated in glia or involved in the detoxification of oxygen metabolites is accomplished. An enhancement of the(More)
A significant increase in the striatal specific activity of DT diaphorase is demonstrable from one to six weeks after intrastriatal injection of kainic acid (KA). At six weeks, there is a significant dose-response relation (ANOVA, F(2,18) = 25.8, p less than 0.001); 1, 3 and 5 nmoles produce 12.3, 39.6 and 118% increases, respectively. Loss of(More)
