To clarify the relationship between melatonin's hydroxyl radical (*OH) scavenging ability and its protective effect in 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-induced neuronal injury, in the present study, the salicylate trapping method combined with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)-electrochemical detection were used to measure the contents of dihydroxybenzoic acid (DHBA) and dopamine (DA) in brain tissues of C57BL/6 mice. Immunocytohistochemistry was used to detect… CONTINUE READING
