OBJECTIVES The purpose of the study was to establish a suitable model to study Parkinson's disease (PD) pathogenesis in differentiated dopaminergic neurons (dDCN). The specific aim was to demonstrate the involvement of the caspase family and to identify specific caspases which are activated by 6-hydroxydopamine (6OHD) treatment leading to death of dDCN. METHODS ReNcell VM cells were differentiated into dDCN and were exposed to 6OHD to induce stress. Western blot (WB) and double… CONTINUE READING
