A cell penetrating heme oxygenase protein protects heart graft against ischemia/reperfusion injury


Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury is an unavoidable barrier that significantly affects outcome of solid organ transplantation. Here, we establish a protein transduction system to extend graft preservation time and to prevent I/R injury in heart transplantation. We generated a recombinant heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) protein containing a modified protein… (More)
