HYPERHOMOCYSTEINEMIA ACCELERATES STROKE-INDUCED BRAIN INJURY VIA PROMOTING ENDOTHELIAL ACTIVATION AND INFLAMMATORY CELL INFILTRATION: THE ROLE OF ICAM1-MEDIATED NEUTROPHIL AND MONOCYTE INFILTRATION

Background: Epidemiology, clinical trials and meta-analysis studies have established that Hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) is an independent risk factor for stroke. However, the exact molecular mechanism underlying the HHcy-induced risk of stroke is unclear. Our study aims to investigate the role of HHcy in stroke. Methods and results: We established a mice mode of focal ischemic stroke, termed transient Middle Cerebral Artery Occlusion (tMCAO) and conducted surgery on a mice model of HHcy (plasma homocysteine level ~150μM),...
