Comparative transcriptome analysis reveals involvement of TLR-2 signaling in the pathogenesis of intracranial aneurysm.

In this study, we collected and analyzed 15 aneurysmal and 17 superficial temporal artery (STA) specimens from 32 Chinese patients with intracranial aneurysm. Total RNA was extracted and reverse transcribed to cDNA, and genome-wide expression profiling was performed by using the Affymetrix Human Genome U133 Plus 2.0 Array which allows a total number of 38… CONTINUE READING
