英文摘要: Abstract(#br) Background(#br)This study was undertaken to determine the effect of thimerosal on the neurodevelopment of premature rats.(#br) Methods(#br)Thimerosal was injected into premature SD rats at a dose of 32.8, 65.6, 98.4 or 131.2 μg/kg on postnatal day 1. Expression of dopamine D4 receptor (DRD4) and serotonin 2A receptor (5-HT2AR), apoptosis in the prefrontal cortex on post-injection day 49, and learning and memory function were studied and compared with those in a control group injected with saline.(#br) Results(#br)Expression of DRD4 and 5-HT2AR and learning function decreased, and apoptosis increased significantly in the 131.2 μg/kg group ( P <0.001). Memory function was significantly impaired by 65.6 ( P <0.05), 98.4 and 131.2 μg/kg ( P <0.001).(#br) Conclusions(#br)The...
