Oligodendrocyte killing by quinolinic acid in vitro.

Abstract

Quinolinic acid, which is produced by macrophages and microglia, can kill neurons in vivo and in vitro. To test whether quinolinic acid is toxic to oligodendrocytes, glial cells cultured from the brains of 2-day-old rats were incubated with quinolinic acid at concentrations known to kill neurons. The cells were then fixed and immunostained with MAbO4 to… (More)
