iNOS contribution to the NMDA-induced excitotoxic lesion in the rat striatum.

Abstract

1. The aim of this study was to assess whether an excitotoxic insult induced by NMDA may induce an iNOS activity which contributes to the lesion in the rat striatum. 2. For this purpose, rats were perfused with 10 mM NMDA through a microdialysis probe implanted in the left striatum. Microdialysate nitrite content, striatal Ca-independent nitric oxide… (More)
