Title:
Expression and functional role of potassium-chloride cotransporters (KCC) in astrocytes and C6 glioma cells. 
Abstract:
Brain edema formation following brain injury is a serious but still poorly treatable medical condition. The understanding of volume regulation in astrocytes, the main cells involved in the formation of cytotoxic brain edema, is key for the development of novel treatment strategies. This study investigates the role of potassium-chloride cotransporters (KCC) for cell volume regulation in glial cells. PCR revealed the expression of KCC isoforms in a glial cell line (C6) and primary cultured astrocy...    »
