Time course of striatal, pallidal and thalamic alpha 1, alpha 2 and beta 2/3 GABAA receptor subunit changes induced by unilateral 6-OHDA lesion of the nigrostriatal pathway.


Immunocytochemical techniques were used to investigate the distribution and abundance of GABAA receptor subunits (alpha 1, alpha 2 and beta 2/3) in the brains of unilaterally 6-OHDA-lesioned rats. Three and 7 days after lesion, the alpha 2-subunit was significantly more abundant in the lesion-ipsilateral striatum than in the lesion-contralateral striatum… (More)
