OBJECTIVES Potassium channels participate in cellular and molecular signalling pathways regulating the life and death of neurons. In this study, effect of pretreatment with potassium channel blockers of 4-aminopyridine (4-AP) and tetraethylammonium (TEA) on the behavioural symptoms of 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced Parkinsonism was evaluated. METHODS(More)
Growing evidence indicates that homocysteine (Hcy) may be involved in the pathophysiology of several neurological disorders including Parkinson's disease. In the present study, the association between blood Hcy concentration and the degree of behavioral symptoms in the 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced Parkinsonism in rat was evaluated. Total serum Hcy(More)
Several lines of evidence show that homocysteine (Hcy) levels are increased in blood and CSF of patients with Parkinson's disease. B vitamins are necessary for Hcy metabolism and their deficiencies cause hyperhomocysteinemia and neurodegeneration. In present study, effect of B vitamin supplementation on the severity of 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterizing by degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in the nigrostriatal pathway. The discovery of levodopa revolutionized the treatment of PD however, after several years of treatment most patients develop involuntary movements which significantly impair the quality of life.(More)
