Ganglioside interactions with the dopaminergic system of rats

Ganglioside interactions with the dopaminergic system of rats The effects of ganglioside treatment on changes in dopaminergic funciton following 6‐hydroxydopamine (6‐OHDA) or repeated exposure to haloperidol were studied in male Fischer‐344 rats.Rats were injected sc with 30 mg/kg of a mixed ganglioside preparation (GM) at the time of the surgery and for 13 days after receiving an intranigral injection of 6‐OHDA. GM treatment attenuated 6‐OHDA depletion of striatal dopameine (DA) and DOPAC. Another group of rats was implanted with chronic indwelling cannulas in the lateral cerebroventricles at the time of 6‐OHDA administration into the substantia nigra. Daily intraventricular injection of 25 or 50 μg GM attenuated depletions of striatal DA and DOPAC. A separate experiment sought to determine the effects of GMI on the development of receptor supersensitivity produced by repeated exposure to a dopamine receptor antagonist, rats were injected sc with 1 mg/kg haloperidol for 8 or for 16 days; some rats were coadministered 2 mg/kg GMI sc. Four days after the last dose, the rats were challenged with 1 mg/kg apomorphine, and activity was counted for 6 min. Treatment with GMI decreased the behavioral supersensitivity to apomorphine induced by repeated exposure to haloperido. Theses experiments suggest that treatment with GM can have a protective effect against 6‐OHDA‐induced depletion of dopamine if treatment with GM begins at the time of lesioning. These studies also support receptor binding data from other laboraories indicating that treatment with GM1 can affect up‐regulation of dopamine receptors. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Neuroscience Research Wiley

Abstract

The effects of ganglioside treatment on changes in dopaminergic funciton following 6‐hydroxydopamine (6‐OHDA) or repeated exposure to haloperidol were studied in male Fischer‐344 rats.Rats were injected sc with 30 mg/kg of a mixed ganglioside preparation (GM) at the time of the surgery and for 13 days after receiving an intranigral injection of 6‐OHDA. GM treatment attenuated 6‐OHDA depletion of striatal dopameine (DA) and DOPAC. Another group of rats was implanted with chronic indwelling cannulas in the lateral cerebroventricles at the time of 6‐OHDA administration into the substantia nigra. Daily intraventricular injection of 25 or 50 μg GM attenuated depletions of striatal DA and DOPAC. A separate experiment sought to determine the effects of GMI on the development of receptor supersensitivity produced by repeated exposure to a dopamine receptor antagonist, rats were injected sc with 1 mg/kg haloperidol for 8 or for 16 days; some rats were coadministered 2 mg/kg GMI sc. Four days after the last dose, the rats were challenged with 1 mg/kg apomorphine, and activity was counted for 6 min. Treatment with GMI decreased the behavioral supersensitivity to apomorphine induced by repeated exposure to haloperido. Theses experiments suggest that treatment with GM can have a protective effect against 6‐OHDA‐induced depletion of dopamine if treatment with GM begins at the time of lesioning. These studies also support receptor binding data from other laboraories indicating that treatment with GM1 can affect up‐regulation of dopamine receptors.
