Glycerol accumulation in edema formation following diffuse traumatic brain injury
Neurological Research, 07/06/2012
Ali A et al. – The data suggested an associated induction of hypoxia inducible factor (HIF)–1alpha, aquaporins (AQPs)9, and extracellular glycerol accumulation in edema formation following diffuse Traumatic brain injury (TBI). The implication of HIF–1alpha and AQP9 underlying TBI–induced edema formation offers possibilities for novel TBI therapies.
