Human thioredoxin (TRX) is a multifunctional redox-active protein. We previously reported that the intraperitoneal administration of recombinant human thioredoxin (rhTRX) attenuates inflammatory cytokine- or bleomycin-induced lung injury in mice. In this study, the effect of rhTRX injected intravenously after lipopolysaccharide (LPS) injection was analyzed(More)
Thioredoxin-1 (TRX) is a redox-active protein with anti-inflammatory effects. This study investigated the optimal delivery method and the mechanisms of recombinant human TRX (rhTRX) to suppress neutrophil recruitment in a rat bleomycin (BLM)-induced sustained acute lung injury model. In male Wister rats intratracheally administered with 0.125 mg/kg BLM, 8(More)
Whether the opening of ATP-sensitive K+ channels responsible for adenosine A2 receptor-mediated vasodepression involves a pertussis toxin (PTX)-sensitive G protein was investigated in pithed rats. Adenosine and levcromakalim were used as reference substances. The blood pressure of pithed rats was kept elevated with an i.v. infusion of methoxamine.(More)
