Sažetak
The influence of voltage dependent calcium channel blocker (VDCC), nimodipine and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist, MK-801 on the brain free arachidonic acid (FAA) level and on the learning ability in hypoxia-exposed rats was examined. 2. Some animals were decapitated after cerebral hypoxia had been obtained and the brain FAA level was determined by gas chromatography.The other animals were trained in a passive avoidance procedure and were exposed to hypoxic conditions immediately after the learning trial response had been acquired. A passive avoidance retention test was performed 24 hours later. 3. Various doses of nimodipine (0.03 ; 0.1 ; 0.3 and 1.0 mg/kg) and MK-801 (0.03 ; 0.1 and 0.3 mg/kg) had been injected 30 minutes before biochemical or behavioral procedures started. 4. It was found that hypoxia strongly increased the brain FAA level and impaired the retention of the passive avoidance response. 5. Pretreatment with 0.3 mg/kg and 1.0 mg/kg of nimodipine prevented the brain FAA accumulation. It has also been shown that all tested doses of nimodipine significantly improved the retention deficit in the animals exposed to hypoxia. 6. Neither the one of tested doses of MK-801 influenced significantly the increase of the brain FAA level and/or passive avoidance behavior in hypoxic animals. 7. These results confirm the hypothesis that the brain FAA accumulation and cognitive impairment, caused by hypoxia, are maybe associated with disturbances in calcium homeostasis and that nimodipine may be useful in ameliorating the hypoxia-induced brain tissue damage. Blocade of NMDA receptor-channel complex by MK-801 was not sufficient to prevent hypoxia-induced neuronal damage.
