Role of neurokinin-1 and dopamine receptors on the striatal methamphetamine-induced proliferation of new cells in mice.

Abstract

A neurotoxic dose of methamphetamine (METH) induces the loss of some striatal neurons. Interestingly, the METH-induced apoptosis in the striatum is immediately followed by the generation of new cells (cytogenesis). In the present study, we investigated the role of the neurokinin-1, dopamine D1 and D2 receptors on the METH-induced cytogenesis. To that end… (More)
