Effects of ganglioside GM1 administration have been studied in unilaterally partially hemitransected rats on striatal energy metabolism, using the radioactive deoxyglucose (DG) technique, on striatal blood flow, using radiolabelled iodoantipyrine (IAP) as tracer, and on cyclic AMP (cAMP) and Ca2+ induced protein phosphorylation in striatal membranes (P2 fraction). Ganglioside GM1 treatment counteracted the imbalance in striatal energy metabolism, in striatal blood flow, as well as in protein phosphorylation found between the striata of the lesioned and unlesioned side, possibly due to excitatory effects on the lesioned side and inhibitory effects on the unlesioned side. In intact animals, GM1 treatment produced a reduction in cAMP and Ca2+ induced striatal protein phosphorylation. Facilitatory actions of the ganglioside GM1 dominate following a lesion, probably due to its possible function as a modulator of receptors for neuronotrophic factors, leading to restoration of metabolic rate and of cAMP and Ca2+ induced protein phosphorylation in the striatum of the lesioned side. The results emphasize that ganglioside GM1 treatment can restore the metabolism of a partially innervated striatum towards normal, as evaluated both at the level of the entire striatal structure by means of the DG and IAP techniques and at the molecular level by means of studies on the cAMP and Ca2+ induced protein phosphorylation.
