Cystatin C expression is increased in the hippocampus following photothrombotic stroke in rat.


Stroke is a major cause of epilepsy, but the molecular mechanisms underlying post-stroke epileptogenesis are unknown. The expression of cystatin C, a cysteine protease inhibitor, is increased in the hippocampus during status epilepticus (SE)-induced epileptogenesis, and regulates both cell death and birth. To test the hypothesis that increased cystatin C… (More)
