The CXC chemokine IL-8, which promotes adhesion, activation, and transmigration of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN), has been associated with production of tissue injury in reperfused myocardium. Hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) is a heterodimeric peptide that is a key regulator of genes such as heme oxygenase (HO)-1 expressed under hypoxic conditions. We hypothesized that HO-1 plays an important role in regulating proinflammatory mediator production under conditions of ischemia… CONTINUE READING
