A pharmacological study using monkeys, in which parkinsonism was induced by 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP), was undertaken to elucidate the mechanism underlying urinary bladder dysfunctions in Parkinson's disease. Under ketamine anesthesia, cystometrograms showed that, in MPTP-treated monkeys, a contraction of the urinary...

Activity of entopeduncular neurons was studied in chronic experiments on cats during performance of instrumental movement: pedal pressing and holding. One-hundred and twenty-four neurons were extracellularly investigated in intact animals and 81 neurons in cats treated with N-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) (5...

In order to compare the recovery capacity of the nigrostriatal system between adult and old mice, MPTP hydrochloride was administered to 48 BL/C57 male mice, which were sacrificed 24 h or 10 d after the second dose. The animals were...

The in vitro binding of [3H]pargyline and [3H]harman ([3H]1-methyl-beta-carboline) to monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A; EC 1.4.3.4) on membranes of rat cerebral cortex was evaluated. Displacement of the [3H]pargyline binding on MAO-A (L(-)-deprenyl suppressed binding to MAO-B) by harman, 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP+)...

1-Methyl-4-(2'-methylphenyl)-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (2'CH3-MPTP) was shown previously to be a more potent neurotoxicant than 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) in mice. The present investigation was conducted to determine possible reasons for the greater potency of 2'CH3-MPTP and to determine if its neurotoxic action might be...
