Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The survival of neural tissues depends in part on the balance between the formation of free radicals due to oxidative metabolism and the transformation of the free radicals to non-toxic compounds. Serial subculture of rat glial cells as described here resulted in a decrease of the specific activities of several antioxidant enzymes and a glial specific marker for astrocytes. Thus, there was an increased susceptibility to oxidative stress in cultures by the third passage. These subcultured glial cell cultures may represent a useful model for the study of free radical induced neural damage that may be relevant to CNS trauma and aging.
