Excessive activation of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1), a nuclear enzyme catalyzing the transfer of ADP-ribose units from NAD to acceptor proteins, induces cellular energy failure by NAD and(More)
Overactivation of the nuclear enzyme poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1) plays a key role in the mechanisms responsible for neuronal death. In the present study, we examined the effects of the(More)
Group I metabotropic glutamate (mGlu) receptors (i.e. mGlu1 and mGlu5) coupled to phospholipase C have been widely investigated for their possible role in excitotoxic and post-ischemic neuronal(More)
