Extracellular ATP and nerve growth factor intensify hypoglycemia-induced cell death in primary neurons: role of P2 and NGFRp75 receptors.


In this study, we monitored the direct expression of P2 receptors for extracellular ATP in cerebellar granule neurons undergoing metabolism impairment. Glucose deprivation for 30-60 min inhibited P2Y1 receptor protein, only weakly modulated P2X1, P2X2 and P2X3, and up-regulated by about two-fold P2X4, P2X7 and P2Y4. The P2X/Y antagonist basilen blue… (More)
