Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) causes secondary brain injury due to vasospasm and inflammation. Here, we studied a rat model of mild-to-moderate SAH intended to minimize ischemia/hypoxia to examine the role of sulfonylurea receptor 1 (SUR1) in the inflammatory response induced by SAH. mRNA for Abcc8, which encodes SUR1, and SUR1 protein were abundantly(More)
Cognitive disturbances after traumatic brain injury (TBI) are frequent, even when neuroimaging shows no overt hemorrhagic or other abnormality. Sulfonylurea receptor 1 (SUR1) plays a key role in various forms of CNS injury, but its role in hippocampal dysfunction after mild to moderate TBI is unknown. To assess the hypothesis that postinjury SUR1(More)
