Zeitschel U, Schliebs R, Rossner S, Bigl V, Eschrich K, Bigl M (2002) Changes in activity and expression of phosphofructokinase in different rat brain regions after basal forebrain cholinergic lesion. J Neurochem 83(2):371-380. doi: 10.1046/j.1471-4159.2002.01127.x
Summary: The authors used intraventricular injections of 4 µg of 192-Saporin (Cat. #IT-01) in rats to investigate whether impaired cholinergic transmission may cause metabolic changes. Although the results demonstrate an initial increase in a cortical glucose metabolic marker, this increase was transient. The authors conclude that cholinergic systems do not control cortical glucose metabolic mechanisms affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
