Nicotine-induced inhibition of neuronal phospholipase A2.


A protective effect of nicotine against glutamate-induced neurotoxicity has previously been reported in cultured striatal and cortical neurons. The aim of this study was to investigate whether nicotine also inhibits glutamate-evoked arachidonic acid release from cultured striatal neurons. (-)-Nicotine selectively inhibited the release of [3H]-arachidonic… (More)
