AbstractINTRODUCTION: Exchange proteins activated by cAMP (Epac1 and Epac2) belong to a family of cAMP-regulated guanine nucleotide exchange factors (cAMPGEFs) for the small GTPases, Rap1 and Rap2[1]. Epac1 was thought to be important in maintenance of tight and adhesion junctions between endothelial cells[2] , suggesting that Epac may play an important role in blood brain barrier (BBB) function. OBJECTIVE: Previously, it was shown that Epac2 mRNA is expressed in the brain[3]. Here, the protein expression of Epac2 was determined and compared to that of Epac1. In addition, the role of Epac2 was determined in the BBB and brain function after ischemia/reperfusion injury. METHOD: Six regions of brain from Epac2 wild type (Epac2+/+) mice was dissected, and proteins were extracted in order to determine the expression of Epac1 and Epac2 under normal and …
