The present study provides evidence for anterograde axonal transport of manganese (Mn) in the basal ganglia. Microinjections of 54Mn into rat substantia nigra or striatum revealed region-specific accumulation and retention of the isotope in globus pallidus, striatum, thalamus and substantia nigra for up to at least 48 or 72 h respectively. Within 4 h after(More)
The rat Whole Embryo Culture (WEC) has been used to predict the potential teratogenicity of 12 selective/mixed monoaminergic reuptake inhibitors (MRUI). WEC results were compared with in vivo animal and human epidemiological teratogenicity data. In vitro, paroxetine and the positive control retinol were the only compounds identified as a clear teratogen,(More)
Regional 45Ca2+ accumulation and analysis of monoamines and metabolites in dissected tissues were used to localize, quantify, and characterize brain damage after intracerebral injections of Mn2+ into striatum and hippocampus. The specificity of Mn(2+)-induced lesions is described in relation to brain damage produced by local Fe2+ or 6-hydroxydopamine(More)
The present studies were aimed at investigating the possible roles of dopamine (DA) and iron in production of hydroxyl radicals (OH) in rat striatum after Mn2+ intoxication. For this purpose, DA depletions were assessed concomitant with in vivo 2,3- and 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid (DHBA) formation from the reaction of salicylate with OH, of which 2,3-DHBA is(More)
It has been suggested that salicylate (SA) hydroxylation can be used to detect hydroxyl radical formation in vivo. Here we describe a rapid and sensitive HPLC method using ultraviolet absorbance (UV) and electrochemical detection (EC) to detect SA (UV), its hydroxylated adducts 2,3- and 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acids (DHBA) and catechol in combination with(More)
Corifollitropin alfa (Elonva®, MSD, previously N.V. Organon or Schering-Plough Oss, The Netherlands) is a newly developed sustained follicle stimulant composed of the α subunit of human follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and a hybrid β subunit formed by fusion of the human chorionic gonadotropin β subunit carboxy terminal peptide with the β subunit of human(More)
The follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) analog corifollitropin alfa (Org 36286) is a potent FSH receptor agonist with an extended plasma half-life due to the fusion of the carboxy-terminal peptide (CTP) of the human chorionic gonadotropin beta-subunit and the human FSH beta-subunit. The absorption, tissue distribution, metabolism and excretion of(More)
