Ample experimental evidence indicates that intracerebral injection or infusion of amyloid-beta peptides (Abeta) to rodents induces learning and memory impairments as well as neurodegeneration in brain areas related to cognitive function. In the present study, we assessed the effects of a single intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) injection of aggregated Abeta(More)
The involvement of nitric oxide in neurodegenerative processes still remains incompletely characterized. Although nitric oxide has been reported to be an important mediator in neuronal degeneration in different models of cell death involving NMDA-receptor activation, increasing evidence for protective mechanisms has been obtained. In this study the role of(More)
The activity of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in homogenates of adult Fasciola hepatica was measured by the direct radiometric assay of the production of L-[3H]citrulline. This is the first radiometric study of the activity of nNOS in a fluke. The effect of arginase was tested. In the presence of L-valine, which is an inhibitor of arginase, the(More)
