Clow, Angela and Hussain, T. and Glover, Vivette and Sandler, M. and Walker, Martin and Dexter, D. (1992) Pergolide can induce soluble Superoxide dismutase in rat striata. Journal of Neural Transmission, 90 (1). pp. 27-31. ISSN 0300-9564Full text not available from this repository.
Pergolide, a dopamine receptor agonist, given daily i.p. for three weeks at 0.04mg/kg and 0.4mg/kg, significantly induced soluble (Cu-Zn) superoxide dismutase in the rat striatum, while having no effect on the mitochondrial (Mn) form of the enzyme. Such induction, which can also be effected by (–)-deprenyl, may help to protect against nigrostriatal degeneration.
