Selective metabolic activation by apomorphine in striosomes of denervated striatum in MPTP-induced hemiparkinsonian monkeys.


Results of previous studies have suggested differences in the regulatory mechanisms in striatal striosomes and matrix following interruption of dopaminergic input to the striatum by MPTP in the monkey. In the present study we have investigated the possibility that stimulation of dopamine receptors by apomorphine modifies glucose metabolism differentially in… (More)
