Ether extract of fetal calf serum protects cultured rat cortical neurons against glutamate cytotoxicity.

Abstract

The effects of an ether extract of fetal calf serum (EE-FCS) on glutamate-induced cytotoxicity were examined using primary cultures of rat cortical neurons. The simultaneous addition of EE-FCS and glutamate reduced glutamate cytotoxicity in a concentration-dependent manner. EE-FCS also reduced the cytotoxicity induced by S-nitrosocysteine, a nitric oxide… (More)
