General description

This book provides in-depth description and analysis of the potential of catecholamine-quinones to destroy nerves in which they are synthesized, mechanisms by which this occurs, sites at which intervention is possible, and role of astroglia. Insight is gleaned from mechanisms of action of several neurotoxins, while analysis of mechanisms of chemically-related tetrahydroisoquinolines provides recognition of the neurotoxic potential of endogenously formed orthoquinones from catecholamines. This book is of value to those investigating catecholamine mechanisms of action, neurotoxins, Parkinson′s Disease and other neurodegenerative disorders, carcinogenicity, particularly melanoma, and other cancers like leukemia.
