N-methyl-D-aspartate but not glutamate induces the release of hydroxyl radicals in the neonatal rat: modulation by group I metabotropic glutamate receptors.

Abstract

Although they likely involve activation of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors, the mechanisms giving rise to perinatal hypoxic-ischemic-induced damages remained unclear. The purpose of the present study was to investigate in vivo the mechanisms regulating the glutamate-induced release of toxic hydroxyl radicals (.OH) in neonatal rat. Anesthetized 7-day… (More)
