Appearance of Nuclear-sorted Caspase-12 Fragments in Cerebral Cortical and Hippocampal Neurons in Rats Damaged by Autologous Blood Clot Embolic Brain Infarctions

Abstract

Following endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, cerebral infarctions have been reported to involve an apoptotic process, including the activation of the caspase cascade. To confirm whether fragmented caspase-12, which is activated by cleavage and is detectable during ER stress, is also involved in embolic cerebral infarctions in rats, we adopted an autologous… (More)
