Neuroinflammation is known to be involved in epileptogenesis with unclear mechanisms. Inhibition of soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) seems to offer anti-inflammatory protection to ischemic brain injury in rodents. Thus, it is hypothesized that sEH inhibition might also affect the neuroinflammatory responses caused by epileptic seizures. In the present study,(More)
Epilepsy is a common brain disorder characterized by a chronic predisposition to generate spontaneous seizures. The mechanisms for epilepsy formation remain unknown. A growing body of evidence suggests the involvement of inflammatory processes in epileptogenesis. In the present study, we investigated the involvement of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1(More)
Aspartokinase III, encoded by lysC, is responsible for the first step of lysine biosynthesis in Escherichia coli. In this study, a lysC knockout E. coli W3110 strain was generated to study the differential gene expression profiles of wild type and lysC knockout strains. Several significant changes were observed, including biosynthesis of lysine,(More)
