6-Hydroxydopamine-mediated induction of rat brain metallothionein I mRNA.

Abstract

Oxidative stress, resulting either from excess generation or reduced scavenging of free radicals, has been proposed to play a role in damaging striatal neurons in Parkinson's disease. Since metallothionein is able to regulate the intracellular redox potential, we have undertaken a group of experiments to learn whether or not 6-hydroxydopamine, which… (More)
