: Hepatic ischemia reperfusion injury (HIRI) is a clinical condition which may lead to cellular injury and organ dysfunction. The role of nitric oxide (NO) in HIRI is complicated and inconclusive. NO produced by endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) activation plays a protective role during early HIRI. But eNOS overexpression and the resulting excessive NO bioavailability can aggravate liver injury. NO induced by inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) may have either a protective or a deleterious effect during the early phase of HIRI, but it may protect the liver during late HIRI. Here, we reviewed the latest findings on the role of NO during HIRI: (1) NO exerts a protective effect against HIRI by increasing NO bioavailability, downregulating p53 gene expression, decreasing inflammatory chemokines, reducing ROS via inhibiting the mitochondrial respiratory chain, activating sGC-GTP-cGMP signal pathway to reduce liver cell apoptosis, and regulating hepatic immune functions; (2) eNOS protects against HIRI by increasing NO levels, several eNOS/NO signal pathways (such as Akt-eNOS/NO, AMPK-eNOS/NO and HIF-1α-eNOS/NO) participating in the anti-HIRI process, and inhibiting over-expression of eNOS also protects against HIRI; and (3) the inhibition of iNOS prevents HIRI. Thus, the adverse effects of NO should be avoided, but its positive effect in the clinical treatment of diseases associated with HIRI should be recognized.

Hepatic ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) is a pathophysiological event post liver surgery or transplantation and significantly influences the prognosis of liver function. The mechanisms of IRI remain unclear, and effective methods are lacking for the prevention and therapy of IRI. Several factors/pathways have been implicated in the hepatic IRI process, including anaerobic metabolism, mitochondria, oxidative stress, intracellular calcium overload, liver Kupffer cells and neutrophils, and cytoki...

Hepatic ischemia/reperfusion (l/R) injury continues to be a critical problem. The role of nitric oxide in liver I/R injury is still controversial. This study examines the effect of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) over-expression on hepatic function following I/R. Adenovirus expressing human eNOS (Ad-eNOS) was administered by tail vein injection into C57BL/6 mice. Control mice received either adenovirus expressing LacZ or vehicle only. Sixty minutes of total hepatic ischemia was performe...

Recently, increasing evidences had suggested that long noncoding RNAs (LncRNAs) are involved in a wide range of physiological and pathophysiological processes. Here we determined the LncRNA expression profile using microarray technology in mouse livers after ischemia/reperfusion treatment. Seventy one LncRNAs were upregulated, and 27 LncRNAs were downregulated in ischemia/reperfusion-treated mouse livers. Eleven of the most significantly deregulated LncRNAs were further validated by quantitative...

OBJECTIVES The surgical treatment for diseases of the descending aorta is related to a high mortality rate because of the activation of a systemic inflammatory process due to ischaemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury. Activation of coagulation can contribute to the inflammatory process, resulting in microcirculatory damage and multiple organ failure. Our goal was to evaluate the role of prophylactic intravenous 17β-oestradiol (E2) in coagulation, the inflammatory response and hepatic injury after o...

Ischemia reperfusion (IR) injury remains an important topic in clinical medicine. While a multitude of prophylactic and therapeutic strategies have been proposed, recent studies have illuminated protective effects of myostatin inhibition. This study aims to elaborate on the intracellular pathways involved in myostatin signaling and to explore key proteins that convey protective effects in IR injury. We used CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing to introduce a Myostatin (Mstn) deletion into a C2C12 cell line....
Ischemia reperfusion (IR) injury plays a pivotal role in many diseases and leads to collateral damage during surgical interventions. While most studies focus on alleviating its severity in the context of brain, liver, kidney, and cardiac tissue, research as regards to skeletal muscle has not been conducted to the same extent. In the past, myostatin (MSTN), primarily known for supressing muscle growth, has been implicated in inflammatory circuits, and research provided promising results for cardi...

Abstract Src homolog and collagen homolog (SHC) proteins are adaptor proteins bound to cell surface receptors that play an important role in signal transduction and related diseases. As an important member of the SHC protein family, SHC1 regulates cell proliferation and apoptosis, reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, and oxidative stress. Three isomeric proteins namely, p46shc, p52shc, and p66shc, are produced from the same SHC1 gene locus. All the three proteins are found in the liver, and...

Abstract Hepatic ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury is characterized by severe inflammation and cell death. However, very few effective therapies are presently available for hepatic IR injury treatment. Here, we reported a protective function and the underlying mechanism of myotubularin-related protein 14 (MTMR14) during hepatic IR injury. Hepatocyte-specific MTMR14 knockout (HKO) and transgenic (TG) mice were subjected to hepatic IR operation to explore MTMR14 function in vivo. Primary hepatocyte...

Nitric oxide is a strong vasodilatory and anti-inflammatory signaling molecule that plays diverse roles in maintaining vascular homeostasis. Nitric oxide produced by endothelial cells is a critical regulator of this balance, such that endothelial dysfunction is defined as a reduced capacity for nitric oxide production and decreased nitric oxide sensitivity. This ultimately results in an imbalance in vascular homeostasis leading to a prothrombotic, proinflammatory, and less compliant blood vessel...
