  1. PFC: Prefrontal cortex; Cere: Cerebellum; UMB: University of Maryland Brain Bank sample number; PMI: Post-mortem interval; DKA: Diabetic ketoacidosis; ATV: All-terrain vehicle; MVA: Motor vehicle accident; RIN: RNA integrity number. *Indicates both prefrontal cortex and cerebellum samples were assessed from the same donor brain.
