Antioxidant Effect of Cysteamine in Brain Cortex of Young Rats

Abstract

Cysteamine is a cystine-depleting drug used in the treatment of cystinosis, a metabolic disorder caused by deficiency of the lysosomal cystine carrier. As a result, cystine accumulates within lysosomes in many tissues and organs, including the nervous system. Studies with cystine dimethyl ester loaded cells suggest that cystine might induce apoptosis… (More)
