Long-term effects of alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate and 6-nitro-7-sulphamoylbenzo(f)quinoxaline-2,3-dione in the rat basal ganglia: calcification, changes in glutamate receptors and glial reactions.


Previous data from our laboratory indicate that 25 mM ibotenic acid induces intracellular calcifications in the rat basal forebrain. Because of the lack of specificity of ibotenic acid for a glutamate receptor subtype, a dose-response study with alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate was undertaken and calcified areas (identified with… (More)
