The mechanism of action of MPTP-induced neuroinflammation and its modulation by melatonin in rat astrocytoma cells, C6.


The 1-methyl-4-phenyl 1,2,3,6 tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) induces reactive astrogliosis, the cellular manifestation of neuroinflammation, in various models of Parkinson's disease (PD), but its mechanism of action on astrocytes is not understood. The effect of melatonin on MPTP-induced neuroinflammation in astrocytes is also not known. The present study… (More)
