Inhibition of c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase activity improves ischemia/reperfusion injury in rat lungs.

Abstract

Although c-Jun NH(2)-terminal kinase (JNK) has been implicated in the pathogenesis of transplantation-induced ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in various organs, its significance in lung transplantation has not been conclusively elucidated. We therefore attempted to measure the transitional changes in JNK and AP-1 activities in I/R-injured lungs… (More)
