Neuronal nitric oxide synthase proteolysis limits the involvement of nitric oxide in kainate-induced neurotoxicity in hippocampal neurons.

Abstract

In this work, we investigated the role of nitric oxide (NO) in neurotoxicity triggered by alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazole-4-propionate (AMPA) receptor activation in cultured hippocampal neurons. In the presence of cyclothiazide (CTZ), short-term exposures to kainate (KA; 5 and 15 min, followed by 24-h recovery) decreased cell viability. Both NBQX… (More)
