Attenuation of levodopa-induced toxicity in mesencephalic cultures by pramipexole

Abstract

The direct-acting dopamine (DA) agonist pramipexole (2 amino-4,5,6,7-tetrahydro-6-propyl-amino-benzthiazole-dihydrocfiloride) was evaluated for its ability to attenuate levodopa-induced loss of tyrosine hydroxylase immunoreactive (THir, a marker for dopamine neurons) cells in mesencephalic cultures. Pramipexole reduced levodopa-induced THir cell loss in a… (More)
