Neurotoxic effects, mechanisms, and outcome of 192 IgG-Saporin lesions.

Petrosini L, De Bartolo P, Cutuli D (2021) Neurotoxic effects, mechanisms, and outcome of 192 IgG-Saporin lesions. RM Kostrzewa (Ed.): Handbook of Neurotoxicity . Springer, Cham doi: 10.1007/978-3-030-71519-9_79-1

Summary: 192-IgG-saporin selectively destroys basal forebrain cholinergic neurons that provide cholinergic input to the hippocampus, entire cortical mantle, amygdala, and olfactory bulb. Immunotoxic lesions by 192-IgG-saporin represent a valid animal model of Alzheimer’s disease, given the degeneration of basal cholinergic system present in this pathology. The selective lesioning of cholinergic innervation by means of 192-IgG-saporin (injected i.p. or i.c.v.) is able to interfere with experience-dependent plasticity.
