Aliquots from striatal
homogenates were separated by SDS-PAGE in 10% Novex Bis-Tris (Invitrogen) gel and transferred electrophoretically to a polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) membrane.

opioid peptide precursors in a rodent model of Parkinson's disease: implications for dyskinesia," Experimental Neurology, vol.
In this study, we determined the neuroprotective potential of green tea and red tea on the motor deficits and striatal
damage caused by hemorrhagic stroke in rats.
Imaging showed unilateral right striatal
hyperintense signal changes in a T1-weighted MRI .
Some of the striatal
neurons have direct GABAergic (gamma aminobutyric acid) projections to the GPi.
In an ATR treatment protocol similar to the one used in this study, we found decreases in striatal
levels of DA, DOPAC, HVA, and 5-HIAA five days after ending ATR treatment .
Interestingly, [A.sub.2A] receptor antagonism might contribute to control of astrogliosis, as [A.sub.2A] antagonists SCH58261 and KW6002 were shown to significantly inhibit signs of astrogliosis in a primary cell culture of striatal
rat astrocytes .
hyperintensity involves the putamen in all cases, the head of the caudate nucleus in most cases, and the globus pallidus in a minority of cases [14,15].
Electrophysiological data was synchronously recorded by electrophysiological instrument (Plexon, Dallas, Texas) when the striatal
neurons were stimulated by a laser (Figure 1(d)).
In this study, we induced focal striatal
ischemia using the ET-1 model of stroke in order to compare the effects of minocycline treatment and BMMC transplantation on an infarct area, neuronal loss, microglia activation, apoptosis, and functional recovery in different survival times postinjury.
The changes of the expression of Syt4 and Syt7 are also known to be involved in the pathophysiological mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases with striatal
and/or hippocampal pathology, such as temporal lobe epilepsy  and Parkinson's disease  as well as brain ischemia and Alzheimer's disease [20,21] and are also known to be induced acutely by different excitotoxic seizure-inducing agents [16-18].
dopamine functions have been consistently identified in patients addicted to almost all types of substances that mainly affect the striatal
