In vivo incorporation of N-acetyl-D-[U-14C]mannosamine into brain gangliosides of rats with quinolinic acid-induced lesions of the forebrain nucleus basalis magnocellularis.


Quinolinic acid, an excitotoxic agent, was applied unilaterally to the nucleus basalis magnocellularis of the rat forebrain, which resulted in neuronal destructions and consequently, loss of cholinergic projections to the cortex. The effects on ganglioside metabolism in brain cortical matter were studied. Total ganglioside contents in lesioned brains (n = 8… (More)
