• Dopaminergic innervation of the caudate nucleus in adult rats can be partially restored by the grafting of embryonic substantia nigra into the overlying parietal cortex with concomitant compensation of certain behavioral abnormalities. (osti.gov)
  • We found a prominent age-dependent accumulation of quinoprotein adducts in the substantia nigra, while no significant change of lipid peroxidation was detected in any brain regions of 2- to 15-month old rats. (springer.com)
  • The aim of this study is to assess the presence of substantia nigra (SN) hypoechogenicity in a cohort of Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) patients and its possible association with restless syndrome (RLS). (curefa.org)
  • Identification and quantification of dolichol and dolichoic acid in neuromelanin from substantia nigra of the human brain. (nih.gov)
  • Neuromelanin (NM) isolated from the substantia nigra of the human brain is found to contain a series of dolichoic acids (dol-CA) containing 14-20 isoprene units. (nih.gov)
  • Embolic mechanism might be more closely related to the secondary change of the substantia nigra than thrombosis. (go.jp)
