Heme oxygenase-1 is an important modulator in limiting glucose-induced apoptosis in human umbilical vein endothelial cells.


Hyperglycaemia is associated with oxidative stress. The inducible isoform of heme oxygenase (HO-1) is an effective system to counteract oxidative stress, yet it is unclear how hyperglycaemia affects HO-1. In this study, we explored: 1) the HO-1 protein content and HO activity in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) exposed to different glucose… (More)
