Our objective in this project is to determine the destructive seizure-inducing effects of the systemically administered organophosphate diisopropyl fluorophosphate (DFP) on rat brain, and to determine the roles of the necroptotic and exitotoxic pathways of programmed necrosis in DFP- induced neuronal necrosis. For Specific Aim 1 we will determine the time course and degree of neuronal necrosis (using the hematoxylin and eosin [H & E] stain) and nuclear translocation of receptor-interacting prote...
