B-cell translocation gene 2 is over-expressed in peri-infarct neurons after ischaemic stroke.

OBJECTIVES Recovery from stroke is dependent on the survival of neurons in the dynamic peri-infarcted region. Although several markers of neuronal injury and apoptotic cell death have been described, administration of neuroprotective drugs directed at specific molecules has had limited success. A complete understanding of deregulated genes associated with… (More)
