Destruction of midbrain dopaminergic neurons by using an immunotoxin to the dopamine transporter.

Wiley RG, Harrison MB, Levey A, Lappi DA (2003) Destruction of midbrain dopaminergic neurons by using an immunotoxin to the dopamine transporter. Cell Mol Neurobiol 23:839-850. doi: 10.1023/a:1025065306264

Summary: The authors demonstrate the effective and specific removal of neurons expressing the dopamine transporter in the substantia nigra pars compacta and the ventral tegmental area with anti-DAT-SAP (Cat. #IT-25). A 21-µg icv injection produced a highly significant loss of midbrain dopaminergic neurons, creating a useful model for Parkinson’s disease.
