Propofol is an intravenous anesthetic with neuroprotective effects against cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury. Few studies regarding the neuroprotective and neurobehavioral effects of propofol have been conducted, and the underlying mechanisms are still unclear. Because I/R may result in neuronal apoptosis, the apoptosis regulatory genes B-cell(More)
Propofol is a commonly used intravenous anesthetic that has been demonstrated to be neuroprotective against cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury. It remains unclear whether this protective effect has any relationship with the prevention of neuronal mitochondrial deoxyribonucleic acid (mtDNA) deletion. In this study, 81 Wistar rats were randomly(More)
Cerebral ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury could cause neural apoptosis that involved the signaling cascades. Cytochrome c release from the mitochondria and the followed activation of caspase 9 and caspase 3 are the important steps. Now, a new mitochondrial protein, apoptosis-inducing factor (AIF), has been shown to have relationship with the(More)
Propofol has been shown to exert neuroprotective effects. Delayed rectifier potassium current (I(K)) was reported to be closely related to neuronal damage. This study was designed to test the effects of propofol on I(K) in rat parietal cortical neurons and the involvement of PKC in this activity. Whole-cell patch-clamp recordings were performed in rat(More)
Post-operative cerebral edema is a threat for patients performed gliomas resection. Some studies have shown that general anesthesia drugs, such as, propofol had neuroprotective effect. Aquaporin-4 (AQP4) and Aquaporin-9 (AQP9) play an important role in maintaining brain water homeostasis under various conditions. The aim of this study was to compare the(More)
