Wei, 2011_1 mouse mouse cerebellar granule cells--- expression level
  • Subjects: -
  • Normal Controls: -
  • Methods: In vitro adnoviral gene delivery approach, cell adhesion and migration assays, Dil labeling, immunofluorscence
  • Evidence Details: In this study, we found that IL-6 was significant increased in the cerebellum of autistic subjects. We demonstrated that IL-6 over-expression in granule cells caused impairments in granule cell adhesion and migration but had little effect on the formation o fdendritic spines or granule cell apoptosis. However, IL-6 over-expression stimulated the formation of granule cell excitatory synapses, without affecting inhibitory synapses
