Forebrain cholinergic plasticity in rats with chronic epilepsy induced by status epilepticus

da Costa C, Soares JI, Lukoyanov NV (2021) Forebrain cholinergic plasticity in rats with chronic epilepsy induced by status epilepticus. . 14th U.PORTO Young Researchers Meeting

Summary: This poster had the following aims: 1) Evaluate the GABAergic population in the MS/DB in a chronic epilepsy model of kainic acid (KA)-treated rats. 2) Assess the GABAergic and cholinergic interconnectivity in the MS/DB in a chronic epilepsy model of kainic acid (KA)-treated rats. Results showed that outcomes were improved in rats receiving 192-IgG-SAP treatment as compared to Sham. Mortality: Sham – 50%; SAP – 0%.Recurrent motor seizures: Sham – 83%; SAP – 40%. Recurrent motor + EEG seizures: Sham – 100%; SAP – 50%.

Usage: 192-IgG-SAP was used to produce a moderate, but significant loss of septohippocampal cholinergic cells and to suppress their plasticity.
