چکیده
Purpose of the research In this study, we appraised the efect of pre-treatment with intra-cerebro ventricular (i.c.v) microinjection of gastrodin (Gst) on catalepsy, motor imbalance, substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc) myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, lipid peroxidation levels, nitric oxide (NO) production and total antioxidant capacity (TAC) in 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) rats model of PD. Materials and methods Male Wistar rats were pre-treated with i.c.v microinjections of Gst (20, 40 and 80 μg/3 μl/rat) for fve consecutive days. Then, catalepsy and motor balance were induced by unilateral infusion of 6-OHDA (8 μg/2 μl/rat) into the SNc. The anti-cataleptic and motor balance improving efect of Gst was assessed by the Bar test and Rotarod 3 weeks after neurotoxin injection, respectively. SNc MPO activity and lipid peroxidation levels, NO production and TAC were assessed at the end of behavioral experiments. Results Our data demonstrated that Gst pre-treatment signifcantly (p < 0.001) was prevented motor in-coordination and catalepsy in neurotoxin lesioned rats. The most motor improving efect was seen at 80 μg Gst (p < 0.001). Pre-treatment of parkinsonian rats with Gst meaningfully (p < 0.001) was suppressed MPO activity, lipid peroxidation and NO production. Furthermore, the TAC level in the SNc was increased (p < 0.001) in Gst-microinjected rats about to the normal nonparkinsonian animals. Major conclusions In summary, pre-treatment with Gst abolished 6-OHDA-induced catalepsy and improved motor incoordination by decreasing: SNc MPO activity, lipid peroxidation levels and NO production, and restoring SNc levels of TAC to the levels of healthy rats.
