Abstract

Emerging evidence indicates that an inflammatory process is involved in dopaminergic nigrostriatal neuron loss in Parkinson’s disease (PD). We have investigated the effect of lifelong glucocorticoid receptor (GR) deficiency of transgenic (Tg) mice expressing GR antisense RNA from early embryonic life in the vulnerability of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic system to 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) -induced experimental PD.
