Neuroprotective effect of arundic acid, an astrocyte-modulating agent, in mouse brain against MPTP (1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine) neurotoxicity.

Abstract

1-Methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) causes the damage of dopaminergic neurons as seen in Parkinson's disease. Oxidative stress has been as one of several pathogenic hypotheses for Parkinson's disease. Here we investigated whether arundic acid, an astrocyte-modulating agent, can protect against alterations of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and… (More)
