The Age-Related Effect of Nicotine on the Expression of Neuroprotective Genes in Ventral Tegmental Area and Substantia NigraPublication Year: 2017, Page(s):13 - 16
Selective degeneration of dopaminergic neurons, which are predominantly located in the substantia nigra (SN) of the midbrain, is one of the hallmarks of Parkinson's disease (PD). Large-scale microarray experimental data revealed several genes with significantly differential expression between the ventral tegmental area (VTA) and the SN dopamine (DA) neurons. Several epidemiological studies have ad... View full abstract»
