Manganese (Mn) is an essential trace element required for normal function and development. However, exposure to this metal at elevated levels may cause manganism, a progressive neurodegenerative disorder with neurological symptoms similar to idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD). Elevated body burdens of Mn from exposure to parental nutrition, vapors in(More)
Environmental or occupational exposure to high levels of manganese (Mn) can lead to manganism, a symptomatic neuro-degenerative disorder similar to idiopathic Parkinson's disease. The underlying mechanism of Mn neurotoxicity remains unclear. In this study, we evaluate the primary toxicological events associated with MnCl(2) toxicity in rat PC12 cells using(More)
