Study Description

Our understanding of mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) is one of the most common forms of drug-resistant epilepsy in humans. Using RNA- and small RNA-sequencing in parallel, we explored differentially expressed genes in the hippocampus and cortex of MTLE patients who had undergone surgical resection and non-epileptic controls. We found significant enrichment for astrocytic and microglial genes amongst up-regulated genes and down-regulation of neuron-specific genes in the hippocampus of MTLE patients. The transcriptome profile of the small RNAs reflected disease state more robustly than mRNAs, even across brain regions which show very little pathology.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
This data set contains the raw .fastq files from two RNA-sequencing experiments and two small RNA-sequencing experiments. Both control brain tissue and tissue from sufferers of mesial temporal lobe epilepsy were sequenced. Two different brain regions were sequenced; the cortex and the hippocampus.
