Cuando la MPTP llega al cerebro, esta es metabolizada a 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP+) por la monoaminooxidasa-B (MAOB) glial, luego el MPP+ es selectivamente transportado por el transportador de dopamina (DAT) hacia el interior de las neuronas dopaminergicas donde causa dano al complejo mitocondrial I, que lleva a la perdida de la actividad mitocondrial, con la consecuente disminucion de produccion y uso de ATP (Reznikoff, Manaker, Parsons, Rhodes, & Rainbow, 1985; Glover, Gibb, & Sandler, 1986) y a un incremento en la produccion de especies reactivas de oxigeno (ROS) (Singer, Castagnoli, Jr.
