摘要：To explore the role of circular RNAs (circRNAs) in pediatric anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor encephalitis, we assessed the profiles of circRNAs and mRNAs in blood leukocytes from anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis patients and healthy controls using microarray analysis. 1196 circRNAs and 719 mRNAs (change ≥2, p < .05) were dysregulated in anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis patients, relative to healthy controls, based on microarray data. Further bioinformatic analysis demonstrated that the host genes of dysregulated circRNAs are primarily associated with receptor internalization. In conclusion, circRNAs may be implicated in the pathogenesis of pediatric anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis. © 2020 The Authors
