Expression levels of mRNAs for catecholamine biosynthetic enzymes as markers of acute response to contusion stress during the early postmortem period.

Abstract

Various stresses can be followed by sudden unexpected deaths, and autopsies sometimes fail to identify pathological findings that determine the cause of death. Pathologists occasionally explain such deaths as being due to overstimulation of sympathoadrenal systems, but postmortem assessment of antemortem sympathoadrenal activity has not been established.
