Description

The effects of estrogen on MPTP-induced neurotoxicity of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic system were examined in C57Bl and CD-1 mice. Ovariectomized mice with and without estrogen were treated with MPTP or its vehicle. The effects of these treatments on striatal dopamine concentrations and L-DOPA-stimulated dopamine and L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) release in vitro were determined. Dopamine concentrations of C57Bl mice receiving estrogen before MPTP were significantly greater than those of non-estrogen-treated MPTP mice as well as estrogen-treated mice receiving the MPTP vehicle. Dopamine concentrations of the CD-1 mice did not differ with these treatments. L-DOPA-evoked dopamine release values of estrogen-treated C57Bl mice were significantly increased compared with non-estrogen-treated mice. No such differences were observed in the
