- Regional decreases of free D-aspartate levels in Alzheimer's diseaseA D'Aniello
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Stazione Zoologica A Dohrn, Napoli, Italy
Neurosci Lett 250:131-4. 1998..These data suggest that decreased levels of D-aspartate could contribute to a lower NMDA receptor function and consequently contribute to the memory deficits seen in AD...
- Secretion of D-aspartic acid by the rat testis and its role in endocrinology of the testis and spermatogenesisA D'Aniello
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Zoological Station of Naples, Napoli, Italy
FEBS Lett 436:23-7. 1998..The distribution of D-Asp is thus quite different from that of testosterone, and its role and the reason for its high concentration in the male reproductive tract remain to be elucidated...

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, School of Medicine, Federico II, Naples, Italy
J Chromatogr B Biomed Sci Appl 753:427-31. 2001..5 times lower, P<0.05). Thus, the determination of L-arginine in the blood of pregnant women could potentially constitute an additional marker for the early diagnosis of preeclampsia...
- A specific enzymatic high-performance liquid chromatography method to determine N-methyl-D-aspartic acid in biological tissuesAntimo D'Aniello
Laboratory of Neurobiology, Zoological Station of Naples, Villa Comunale, Italy
Anal Biochem 308:42-51. 2002..Using this method we have conducted a comparative study in order to measure the amount of NMDA in neuroendocrine and other tissues of various animal phyla from mollusks to mammals...
