Previous studies have demonstrated a close relationship between abnormal regulation of microRNA (miRNA) and various types of diseases, including epilepsy and other neurological disorders of memory. However, the role of miRNA in the memory impairment observed in epilepsy remains unknown. In this study, a model of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) was induced via(More)
AIMS Amyloid β (Aβ) is considered to be an important mediator of the development and progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Its direct binding to p75(NTR), not TrkA, induces apoptosis, which is thought to be the most relevant feature of p75(NTR) regarding AD. In the present study we explored the regulation of p75(NTR) on Aβ production and accumulation(More)
The down-regulation of microRNA-328a (miR-328a) in pentylenetetrazole (PTZ)-kindled rats with memory impairment was demonstrated in our previous study, while any contribution of miR-328a to cognitive dysfunction of PTZ-kindled rats remains unknown. In this study we have investigated the effect and the underlying mechanism of miR-328a on the cognitive(More)
Demyelinating diseases is common in neurology department, but its treatment is still not clear. A 40-year-old male who was addicted in heroin was hospitalized and presented worsening altered mental status in hospital. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a symmetrical diffuse long T1 and long T2 time abnormalities in the white matter of cerebral(More)
Our previous study showed that the expression of miR-181a in memory impairment group of pentylenetetrazol (PTZ)-induced epileptic rats was up-regulated, but whether miR-181a influenced the cognitive function of PTZ-induced epileptic rats remains unknown. Therefore, we investigated the role of miR-181a in the cognitive function of PTZ-induced epileptic rats.(More)
Voltage-gated potassium channels (VGPCs) are among the most complex families of ion channels. VGPCs are distributed widely among species but their biological roles remain unclear. In this study, the evolution of VGPCs and the functions of ancestral families are determined according to phylogenetic studies. We downloaded 127 genomic data of alpha subunits(More)
