We proposed the following cascade for the neuroprotective effect of octadecaneuropeptide (ODN) against 6-OHDA-induced neuronal death: ODN provokes a stimulation of ERK phosphorylation, through a PKC-dependent mechanism. Activation of ERK counteracts the inhibition of Bcl-2 and the stimulation of the pro-apoptotic gene Bax induced by reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation and glutathione (GSH) depletion. These data may allow the development of new strategies for cerebral injury treatment.
