Objective: Aquaporin4 is the main water channel in the brain that is associated with neurological disorders. The role and the expressive changes of aquaporin4 in epilepsy are still limited and controversial. The study aims to evaluate the expression of c-fos and aquaporin4 during epileptogenesis after systemic kainic acid-induced status epilepticus in the temporal lobe epilepsy animal model and to investigate their alterations in both hippocampus and amygdala.
