Zinc transporters (ZnTs) and plasticity-related genes (PRGs) both play the key roles in the formation of hippocampal mossy fiber sprouting, which is associated with cognitive deficits following developmental seizures. Here, for the first time, we report the timing of expression pattern of ZnT-1, ZnT-3 and PRG-1 in hippocampus and cerebral cortex following(More)
An animal tumour model that mimics the human counterpart is essential for preclinical evaluation of new treatment modalities. The objective of this study was to develop and characterize such a model. To accomplish this, the established AY-27 rat bladder transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) cell line was transplanted orthotopically into Fischer CDF344 female(More)
Zinc transporters, plasticity-related genes, and autophagic/apoptotic pathway both are associated with developmental seizure-induced brain excitotoxicity. Here, for the first time, we report the timing of expression pattern of zinc transporter 4 (ZnT-4), plasticity-related gene 3 (PRG-3), specific marker of autophagic vacuoles (LC3), and apoptotic marker(More)
