(–)-Deprenyl (0.25 or 2mg/kg) or saline was injected daily into male Wistar rats for 3 weeks. The striata were dissected out and soluble and particulate Superoxide dismutase activity measured. (–)-Deprenyl at 2mg/kg induced a significant increase in the soluble but not the particulate form of the enzyme. The possibility that this action contributes to the ability of (–)-deprenyl to retard nigral degeneration in man and prolong life in rats is discussed.
