Age-related changes in the distribution of nitrotyrosine in the cerebral cortex and hippocampus of rats.

A wealth of indirect evidence implicates oxidative damage of cellular constituents in aging, as well as in the pathogenesis of the neurodegenerative diseases of later years. In the present study, we have determined age-related changes in the distribution of 3-nitrotyrosine (3-NT) in the cerebral cortex and hippocampus of rats. In adult rats, no 3-NT… CONTINUE READING
