c-JUN, KROX-24, and c-FOS expression in hippocampal grafts placed in excitotoxic hippocampal lesions of the rat.

Hippocampal transplants were examined for the expression of three specific immediate early gene encoded proteins in order to establish if grafted immature tissue maintains the basic molecular program necessary for gene transcription after grafting to excitotoxic (ibotenic acid-induced) lesions in adult host rat brains. The transplants were derived from… (More)
