Genetic factors contribute significantly to the etiology of febrile seizures (FS), the most common type of seizures in childhood. However, in most patients with FS, the causative gene is unknown. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between human brain-specific gene SEZ-6 and FS. Through amplification of genomic DNA by PCR and(More)
Multidrug resistance-associated protein 1 (MRP1), an efflux multidrug transporter, was shown to be elevated in both glia and neurons in seizure focus in refractory epilepsy patients. Up-regulation of MRP1 and other multidrug transporters in perivascular astrocytes was suggested to cause resistance to antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) by reducing the concentration(More)
BACKGROUND Glucocorticoid receptor (GR) is believed to be a major factor in brain maturation and in modulation of a series of brain activity. Hippocampal neurons are abundant in glucocorticoid receptor, and there is significant change in GR expression under certain pathological state. Epilepsy is a special pathological state of the central nervous system.(More)
The objective of this study was to analyze the changes in expression and the possible functions of interleukin-6 (IL-6) in electrical kindling of the basolateral amygdala (BLA) in epileptic rats. Bipolar electrodes were implanted into the BLA of Sprague-Dawley rats, and the rats were then subjected to chronic electrical stimulation through the electrodes to(More)
