Purpose To establish the culture system of rat dopaminergic neurons,and to determine whether Paraquat and Dieldrin are selectively toxic for cultured rat dopaminergic neurons respectively. Methods The cultured rat dopaminergic neurons were treated for 24 h with Paraquat and Dieldrin (0.001 to 100 μmol/L)respectively.Data were expressed as percentage of surviving TH(tyrosine hydroxylase) positive(TH +) cells and non TH positive (TH +) cells per culture dish. Results Paraquat was not selectively toxic for TH + neurons.Dieldrin (1 μmol/L) selectively decreased the number of TH + neurons without affecting non TH positive (TH +) cells.The EC 50 of Dieldrin on TH + neurons was 27.6 μmol/L. Conclusions Paraquat can not selectively destroy dopaminergic neurons in culture.Dieldrin (1 μmol/L) can selectively destroy the dopaminergic neurons in culture,which makes it a potential etiological agent for Parkinson's disease.The possible parkinsonogenic effect of Dieldrin is deserved for further investigation.
