Roncon et al (2015) MicroRNA profiles in hippocampal granule cells and plasma of rats with pilocarpine-induced epilepsy – comparison with human epileptic samples.

Animal study: Rat model (Pilocarpine) with miRNA analysis of Granule cell layer of hippocampus at different time points (early latent late latent,  1st spontaneous seizure, chronic). Post-hoc validation of some of the altered miRNA using PCR. Comparison with plasma samples collected at the same time points and with human hippocampal granular cell layer.
