BACKGROUND We measured the cardioprotection afforded by sevoflurane postconditioning in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats (DRs) and determined the roles of glycogen synthase kinase (GSK), phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase/Akt, and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK1/2) in such a procedure. METHODS DRs and nondiabetic rats (NDRs) were subjected to a(More)
BACKGROUND The authors investigated the cardioprotection afforded by postconditioning with intravenous infusion of emulsified isoflurane in a rat model in vivo and determined the role of Janus kinase (JAK)-signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) pathway in such procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS Rats were subjected to a 30-min coronary(More)
