The chemokine receptor CCR5 is not a necessary inflammatory mediator in kainic acid-induced hippocampal injury: evidence for a compensatory effect by increased CCR2 and CCR3.


Chemokines and their receptors have been strongly implicated in the inflammatory process. However, their roles in excitotoxic brain injury are largely unknown. In this study we used C-C chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5) knockout (KO) mice to investigate the role of CCR5 in neurodegeneration induced by intranasal administration of the excitotoxin kainic acid (KA… (More)
