The membrane-bound axon guidance molecule netrin-g2 is preferentially expressed in the central nervous system and plays a role in synapse formation and maintenance. Using immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, and Western blotting, we investigated the possible correlation between netrin-g2 expression and intractable epilepsy (IE) using surgical samples(More)
Calponin-3 is an actin-interacting protein and is expressed in the brain. Our previous microarray scan has found an up-regulation of calponin-3 gene CNN3 in the temporal lobe of patients with drug-resistant epilepsy. Here we investigated in epileptic patients the changes of brain and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) calponin-3 expressions, and assessed calponin-3(More)
Intractable epilepsy (IE) patients have synaptic dysfunction. However, the exact mechanism of synaptic function needs further elucidation. The aim of this study was to use immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, and Western blotting to investigate the expression of the Liprin-α1 protein, one of the synapse-associated proteins, in human IE brain tissues(More)
PURPOSE In epilepsy, many studies were focus on apoE gene polymorphism and found APOE epsilon4 to be associated with earlier onset of temporal lobe epilepsy. There is not any study about apoE in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of epileptic patients, so we detect the CSF-apoE and determine whether it is changed after seizure. METHODS A total of 60 epileptic(More)
The association between T174M polymorphism of angiotensinogen gene and essential hypertension risk remains controversial. We herein performed a meta-analysis to achieve a reliable estimation of their relationship. All the studies published up to May 2013 on the association between T174M polymorphism and essential hypertension risk were identified by(More)
