Pretreated Glehnia littoralis extract prevents neuronal death following transient global cerebral ischemia through increases of superoxide dismutase 1 and brain-derived neurotrophic factor expressions in the gerbil hippocampal cornu ammonis 1 area.
As previously described in the literature, HIA is the angle between the line connecting the medial superior margin of the subiculum with the lateral margin of the cornu ammonis and the vertical midline of the cerebral hemisphere (Figs.
observed that miR-29a expression significantly increased in the more ischemia-resistant hippocampal subregion dentate gyrus but decreased in the more ischemia-sensitive cornu ammonis 1 subregion following transient global ischemia [115].
Initial studies of behavior of hippocampus cells [22] and the vulnerable neurons of Cornu Ammonis (CA1) as well as neurons slightly more resistant to hypoxia-dentate gyrus and CA2-4 have shown that the level of c-Fos protein drops all parts of the hippocampus up to 6 hours after the reperfusion.
Looking at three subregions - the cornu ammonis (CA) 1, CA3/dentate gyrus and subiculum - they found that the first two expanded with age, with the most pronounced growth in the right hippocampus.
