Quinolinic acid (QUIN) is an endogenous neurotoxin which originates from the kynurenine pathway of tryptophan metabolism. An increase of brain QUIN level occurs in several degenerative and inflammatory disorders, but the cellular source of QUIN is still a matter of controversy. In the present study, the gerbil model of transient global ischemia was used to(More)
NW-1029, a benzylamino propanamide derivative, was selected among several molecules of this chemical class on the basis of its affinity for the [(3)H]batracotoxin ligand displacement of the Na(+) channel complex and also on the basis of its voltage and use-dependent inhibitory action on the Na(+) currents of the rat DRG (dorsal root ganglia) sensory neuron.(More)
