Objectives : We examined the patterns of cell death induced by the 6-hydroxydopamine, a selective dopaminergic toxin that used to produce Parkinson's disease model.

Method : Neocortices from 14- or 15-day-old fetal mice for neuron-glia co-cultures were used for this experiments.

Results : Cortical cell cultures exposed to 10 - 100μM 6-hydroxydopamine for 24 hr under-went neuronal death without injuring glia. The degenerating neurons showed hallmark of apoptosis featuring cell body shrinkage, nuclear chromatin condensation and

aggregation, nuclear membrane disintegration with intact plasma membrane, and prominent internucle- osomal DNA fragmentation. Neither the glutamate antagonists(10μM MK-801 and 50μM CNQX) nor antioxidants(trolox, 100μM, N-acetyl-cysteine, 100μM)

prevented th 6-OHDA induced neuronal injury. The death was attenuated by addition of two different anti-apoptotic agents, 1μg/ml cycloheximide and caspase inhibitor(100μM zVAD-fmk).

Conclusion : These features suggest that 6-OHDA induced apoptotic type of neuronal death in cortical neuronal culture. Considering the protective effect of caspase inhibitors, a mechanism involving caspase cascade rather than oxidative stress is responsible for the 6-OHDA-induced neuronal apoptosis. In addition, our results showed that 6-OHDA-induced apoptosis is not confined to dopaminergic neurons and the primary cortical culture system so this system is suitable for the study 6-OHDA-induced neuronal apoptosis.
