Neuronal apoptosis versus necrosis induced by glutamate or free radicals


The type of cell death encountered in neuronal cell cultures exposed to excitatory amino acids — such as glutamate, the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, or free radicals, such as nitric oxide (NO.) and superoxide anoin (O2. −), which react to form peroxynitrite (ONOO−) — appears to depend on the intensity of the exposure and… (More)
