Here, we used a model of NO-triggered neuronal apoptosis that was strictly dependent on autocrine NMDA receptor (NMDA-R) activation and intracellular Ca2 increase. We investigated the efficiency and potentially beneficial effects of calpain inhibition. Three calpain inhibitors that prevented intracellular fodrin proteolysis also blocked apoptotic features such as decrease in mitochondrial membrane potential, chromatin breakdown, and subsequent death of cerebellar granule neurons exposed to NO donors (S-nitroso- L-glutathione, S-nitroso-N-acetyl D,L-penicillamine, and diethylamino- diazenolate-2-oxide). Since inhibitors did not interfere with NMDA-R activation, we suggest that block of calpains blunts NO-triggered neuronal apoptosis by stopping the cascade downstream of primary autocrine excitotoxic events.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Nicotera, Pierluigi</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T17:37:12Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2001</dcterms:issued> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:creator>Nicotera, Pierluigi</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Leist, Marcel</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Calpain inhibitors prevent nitric oxidetriggered excitotoxic apoptosis</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
