The Aim of this Study: The aim of this study was to estimate the changes in the pool of free amino acids and biogenic amines in hippocampus and brain cortex of rats undergoing subtotal cerebral ischemia (SCI) and treated with L-NAME.
Methods: The experiments were carried out on 18 white outbred female rats (6 animals in each group), weighing 180 - 220g. Subtotal cerebral ischemia (SCI) was simulated in the rats of the experimental groups by ligation of both carotid arteries for one hour. L-NAME was injected intravenously at a dose of 5 mg/kg immediately before ligation of the common carotid artery. The spectrum of compounds determined included proteinogenic amino acids, ornithine, citrulline, a number of related compounds (taurine, α-aminobutyrate, etc.), and biogenic amines. The analysis was carried out on an Agilent 1100 chromatograph by reverse phase chromatography with precolumn derivatization with o-phthalic aldehyde and 3-mercaptopropionic acid in Na-borate buffer.
Results: Subtotal cerebral ischemia induced imbalance in the pool of amino acids and their derivates in hippocampus and brain cortex. The effect of SCI on the pool of free AA and neuroactive compounds in the studied sections of the rats brain is basically the same, however, there is a group of compounds, including aspartate, ornithine, and GABA, for which the nature of the effect is specific for the hippocampus and the brain cortex. Preventive administration of L-NAME partially prevents this imbalance; however induce the changes in the levels of bran chain amino acids (BCAA), arginine, gistidine, treonine and taurine.
