Clow, Angela, Hussain, T., Glover, Vivette, Sandler, M., 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.
