The ability of the sulfonylurea receptor (SUR) 1 to suppress seizures and excitotoxic neuron damage was assessed in mice transgenically overexpressing this receptor. Fertilized eggs from FVB mice were injected with a construct containing SUR cDNA and a calcium-calmodulin kinase IIalpha promoter. The resulting mice showed normal gross anatomy, brain(More)
The role of the K-ATP channel pore-forming subunit Kir6.2 on protection from cerebral hypoxic-ischemic injury was assessed in transgenic mice overexpressing normal Kir6.2 or a dominant negative form (AFA) of this subunit in the forebrain. The resulting mice overexpress either the Kir6.2 or the AFA transgene mainly in the cerebral cortex and hippocampus. The(More)
