Effects of neonatal MK-801 treatment on p70S6K-S6/eIF4B signal pathways and protein translation in the frontal cortex of the developing rat brain.


Systemic injections of MK-801, a selective NMDAR antagonist, into neonatal rats induces long-term neurochemical and behavioural changes. It has been suggested that these changes form the neurodevelopmental basis for schizophrenia-like behaviour in rats. In this study, 7-d-old rats were treated with MK-801, and their frontal cortices were examined to… (More)
