Intrastriatal transplantation of Sertoli cells may improve amphetamine-induced rotation and tyrosine hydroxylase immunoreactivity of the striatum in hemiparkinsonian rats.

Abstract

This study investigated survival and neurotrophic effects of Sertoli cells transplanted in the striatum of 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced hemiparkinsonian rats. Primary cultures of Sertoli cells were established from 3-week old rats and characterized by associated marker, placental cadherin (P-cadherin). Two months after transplantation, amphetamine… (More)
