Hu et al (2012) MicroRNA expression profile of the hippocampus in a rat model of temporal lobe epilepsy and miR-34a-targeted neuroprotection against hippocampal neurone cell apoptosis post-status epilepticus.

Animal study: Rat model (Pilocarpine) with miRNA analysis of whole hippocampus once rats became epileptic (Agilent platform). Post-hoc validation of altered miRNA using PCR. Functional study using antagomirs to target miR-34a showed this reduced neuronal death after status epilepticus.
