Potential Contribution of Hypoxia-Inducible Factor-1α, Aquaporin-4, and Matrix Metalloproteinase-9 to Blood–Brain Barrier Disruption and Brain Edema After Experimental Subarachnoid Hemorrhage


The current research aimed to investigate the role of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α), aquaporin-4 (AQP-4), and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) in blood–brain barrier (BBB) dysfunction and cerebral edema formation in a rat subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) model. The SAH model was induced by injection of 0.3 ml fresh arterial, non-heparinized blood into… (More)
