Characterization of the transient middle cerebral artery occlusion model of ischemic stroke in a HuR transgenic mouse line

Data Brief. 2017 Oct 17;16:1083-1090. doi: 10.1016/j.dib.2017.10.033. eCollection 2018 Feb.


This set of experiments characterizes a model of transient cerebral ischemic stroke in a transgenic (Tg) mouse line in which the glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) promoter is utilized to drive expression of a human RNA-binding protein, HuR. Additionally, the effect of cerebral ischemia on the expression of endogenous Hu proteins is presented.
