Endogenous brain protection by granulocyte-colony stimulating factor after ischemic stroke.

Abstract

Several lines of evidence have demonstrated beneficial effects of the hematopoietic factor G-CSF in experimental stroke. A conclusive demonstration of this effect in G-CSF deficient mice is, however, lacking. We therefore investigated the effect of G-CSF deficiency on infarct volumes, functional recovery, mRNA and protein expression of the matrix… (More)
