The effects of selective inhibition of cathepsins B and L on postischemic protein alterations in the brain were investigated in a rat model of middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO). Cathepsin B activity increased predominantly in the subcortical region of the ischemic hemisphere where the levels of collapsing mediator response protein 2, heat shock(More)
Calpastatin, a naturally occurring protein, is the only inhibitor that is specific for calpain. A novel blood-brain barrier (BBB)-permeant calpastatin-based calpain inhibitor, named B27-HYD, was developed and used to assess calpain's contribution to neurological dysfunction after stroke in rats. Postischemic administration of B27-HYD reduced infarct volume(More)
