As the demise of dopaminergic neurons is the cause for Parkinson's disease (PD) symptoms, GDNF is a promising agent for its treatment. However, this neurotrophin is unable to cross the blood-brain barrier, which has complicated its clinical use. Therefore, ways to deliver GDNF into the central nervous system in an effective manner are needed. The HIV-1-Tat-derived cell-penetrating peptide (CPP) provides a means to deliver fusion proteins into the brain. We generated a fusion protein between the 11 amino acid CPP of Tat and the rat GDNF mature protein to deliver GDNF across the blood-brain barrier. We showed previously that Tat-GDNF enhances the neuroprotective effect of GDNF in in vivo models for nerve trauma and ischemia. Here, we tested its effect in a subchronic scheme of 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) application into the mouse as a model for PD to evaluate the effect of Tat-GDNF fusion protein in dopaminergic neuron survival. We showed that the fusion protein did indeed reach the dopaminergic neurons. However, the in vivo application of Tat-GDNF did not provide neuroprotection of dopaminergic neurons, as revealed by immunohistochemistry and counting of the number of tyrosine-hydroxylase-immunoreactive neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta. Possibly, GDNF does protect nigro-striatal projections of those neurons that survive MPTP treatment but does not increase the number of surviving dopaminergic neurons. A concomitant treatment of Tat-GDNF with an anti-apoptotic Tat-fusion protein might be beneficial.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Valbuena, Paoloa C.</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Müller, Patrick</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Weishaupt, Jachen H.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Bähr, Mathias</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Valbuena, Paoloa C.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Müller, Patrick</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Weishaupt, Jachen H.</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Dietz, Birgit</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/55873"/> <dc:contributor>Meuer, Katrin</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Bähr, Mathias</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Dietz, Birgit</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Dietz, Gunnar P.
