Following the onset of ischemia, impairment of oxygen and glucose supply rapidly shuts down cellular energy production. With energy depletion, membrane resting potential is lost and neuronal and glial cells depolarize. 79,80 Impairment of energy-dependent neurotransmitter reuptake further increases extracellular glutamate accumulation. Activation of glutamate receptors is a major factor involved in neuronal damage following ischemic insults. 85-88 Because excitotoxicity is thought to be largely mediated by NO production, peroxynitrite formation, DNA damage, and PARP-1 activation, a role for PARP-1 was investigated.
