Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress is Involved in the Neuroprotective Effect of Propofol


Propofol is a common clinically used intravenous anaesthetic agent with antioxidative property. It has been thought to have neuroprotection in vitro and in vivo. However, the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress plays an important role in regulating the signaling pathways concerning cell death and survival. Therefore, we… (More)
