Different mechanisms of protection against apoptosis by valproate and Li+.

Abstract

Acute treatment with valproate and Li+ was found to protect cultured cerebellar granule cells against apoptosis induced by low K+ (5 mM). Because the protection was unaffected by MK801 (N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor inhibitor), an increase in glutamate release cannot be responsible for the observed neuroprotection. Insulin also protects against low-K… (More)
