To obtain a comprehensive profile of the age-related changes of the antioxidant enzyme system in discrete brain regions (cortex, caudate-putamen, substantia nigra, thalamus), the present study involved practically the total life span of male Wistar rats (from 5 to 35 months of age). The activities of both glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase increase from 5 to 25 months of life and remain relatively constant or decrease scantily thereafter. In thalamus, the… CONTINUE READING
