Transcriptional alterations under continuous or pulsatile dopaminergic treatment in dyskinetic rats


Grünblatt, E; Schmidt, W J; Scheller, D K A; Riederer, P; Gerlach, M (2011). Transcriptional alterations under continuous or pulsatile dopaminergic treatment in dyskinetic rats. Journal of Neural Transmission, 118(12):1717-1725.

Abstract

Continuous dopaminergic treatment is considered to prevent or delay the occurrence of dyskinesia in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Rotigotine is a non-ergolinic D(3) > D(2) > D(1) dopamine-receptor agonist for the treatment of PD using a transdermal delivery system providing stable plasma levels. We aimed to investigate the differential influence on gene expression of pulsatile L: -DOPA or rotigotine versus a continuous rotigotine treatment. The gene expression profile within the nigro-striatal system of unilateral 6-hydroxydopamine-lesioned rats was assessed in order to differentiate potential changes in gene expression following the various treatment using Affymetrix microarrays and quantitative RT-PCR. The expression of 15 genes in the substantia nigra and of 11 genes in the striatum was altered under pulsatile treatments inducing dyskinetic motor response, but was unchanged under continuous rotigotine treatment that did not cause dyskinetic motor response. The route of administration of a dopaminergic drug is important for the induction or prevention of motor abnormalities and adaptive gene expressions. The decline of neurotrophin-3 expression under pulsatile administration was considered of particular importance.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
