    ..Taken together, our results demonstrate for the first time that activation of mitochondrial KATP channels elicits protection against rotenone-induced cell death...

    Tai K, Truong D. NMDA receptor-mediated excitotoxicity contributes to the cerebral hypoxic injury of a rat model of posthypoxic myoclonus. Brain Res. 2007;1133:209-15 pubmed
    ..The results suggest that the neurodegeneration observed in specific areas of the brain of the posthypoxic rats is contributed by NMDA receptor-mediated excitotoxicity...
