Role of nitric oxide synthase against MPTP neurotoxicity in mice.


1-Methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) causes nigrostriatal dopaminergic pathway injury similar to that observed in Parkinson's disease. Many hypotheses have been proposed to explain the mechanisms underlying MPTP neurotoxicity. Previous work showed that the inhibitor of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) might produce protection against… (More)
