Aim: In recent studies, it has been shown that the Transient Receptor Potential Melastatin-2 Channels (TRPM2) and Phospholipases A2 (PLA(2)) inhibitors may have a protective effect on neurons. This study was aimed to investigate the protective effect of TRPM2 and PLA(2) inhibitor N-(p-amylcinnamoyl) Anthranilic Acid (ACA) in a neurodegenerative model induced by Okadaic Acid (OKA).
