Summary and Info
Respected investigators from around the world critically review what is known about the role of mitochondrial inhibitors in cell death and the onset of neurodegeneration. These distinguished researchers-many pioneers in the field-detail the symptomology, origin, and chemistry of mitochondrial toxins, and discuss animal models of human diseases related to abnormal mitochondrial function. The emphasis on 3-NP and its ability to replicate the cellular, anatomical, and behavioral alterations seen in Huntington's disease demonstrate that mitochondrial inhibitors play an important role in the etiology of central nervous system disorders. The book also discusses recent therapeutic modalities aimed at rescuing the central nervous system from abnormal mitochodrial functioning. With its timely, in-depth review, Mitochondrial Inhibitors and Neurodegenerative Disorders offers today's advanced investigators powerful insights into how mitochondrial toxins precipitate and exacerbate neurodegenerative disorders, and details important new treatment strategies that can halt or reverse disease progression.
