C57 black mice were injected repeatedly with maximal tolerated doses of 4 different chemical analogues of N-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP), or its metabolite N-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium ion (MPP+), in order to assess their possible neurotoxicity for dopaminergic nigrostriatal neurons and their potential for causing idiopathic Parkinson's disease. The 4 analogues were the herbicide paraquat, reduced paraquat (having two N-methyl-tetrahydropyridine moieties), N-methyl-1,2,3,4… CONTINUE READING
