Neuroprotective effect of insulin-like growth factor I in immortalized hypothalamic cells.

Abstract

The neuroprotective action of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) was tested in immortalized hypothalamic GT1-7 cells exposed to reduced glutathione depleting agents, which cause oxidative stress and cell death. The extent of cell survival was assessed by either using the 3-[4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl]-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide cytotoxicity assay or… (More)
