Systemic administration of pilocarpine preceded by lithium induces status epilepticus (SE) that results in neurodegeneration and may lead to the development of spontaneous recurrent seizures. We investigated the effect of Li/pilocarpine-induced SE on phosphorylation of the NMDA receptor in rat hippocampus. Phosphorylation of NR1 by PKC on Ser890 was(More)
Systemic administration of kainic acid (KA) induces status epilepticus (SE) that causes neurodegeneration and may subsequently lead to spontaneous recurrent seizures. We investigated the effects of KA-induced SE on tyrosine phosphorylation and solubility properties of the NMDA receptor. Following 1 h of SE, total protein tyrosine phosphorylation was(More)
