Immunohistochemical modifications of vasoactive neuropeptides and excitatory amino acids in the nervous tissue of the Mongolian gerbil after transient cerebral ischemia.


Modifications in the tissue concentration of vasoactive peptides (Endothelin, Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide, Atrial Natriuretic Peptide) and excitatory amino acids (glutamate, aspartate) were found in the nervous tissue of Mongolian gerbils after transient cerebral ischemia which was induced by unilateral occlusion of the common carotid artery for 30 min… (More)
