In this review, the contribution of reactive astrocytes and their ability to modulate midbrain dopaminergic neurodegeneration, neuroprotection and neurorepair in MPTP rodent model of Parkinson's disease (PD) will be discussed in the light of novel emerging evidence implicating Wingless-type MMTV integration site (Wnt)/β-catenin signaling as a strong a candidate in MPTP-induced nigrostriatal dopaminergic plasticity, with implications for identifying new potential therapeutic targets in PD.
