- Endothelin-1 overexpression leads to further water accumulation and brain edema after middle cerebral artery occlusion via aquaporin 4 expression in astrocytic end-feet. Lo, Amy C. Y.; Chen, Ann Y. S.; Hung, Victor K. L.; Lai Ping Yaw; Fung, Maggie K. L.; Ho, Maggie C. Y.; Tsang, Margaret C. S.; Chung, Stephen S. M.; Chung, Sookja K. // Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism;Aug2005, Vol. 25 Issue 8, p998
Stroke patients have increased levels of endothelin-1 (ET-1), a strong vasoconstrictor, in their plasma or cerebrospinal fluid. Previously, we showed high level of ET-1 mRNA expression in astrocytes after hypoxia/ischemia. It is unclear whether the contribution of ET-1 induction in astrocytes is...
