Elevated concentrations of the pteridine compound neopterin, usually accompanied by 7,8-dihydroneopterin were found in cerebrospinal fluids of patients with neurodegenerative diseases and central nervous system infections. Here, the potential of pteridines to induce apoptosis of the human neuronal cell line (NT2) was investigated. Reduced neopterin,(More)
In cerebrospinal fluid of patients with cerebral infections, elevated concentrations of the pteridine compounds neopterin and 7,8-dihydroneopterin were detected. Here, the potential of pteridines to induce apoptosis of the rat pheochromocytoma cells (PC12) was investigated. In contrast to aromatic pteridines like neopterin, the reduced forms(More)
