Mitochondrial function of the liver is one of the limiting factors in liver preservation. Nowadays, prostaglandin I2 (PGI2) is used as a cytoprotective agent in liver preservation without full understanding its mechanism involved. It is the objective of the present study to evaluate the protective effect of PGI2 on mitochondrial function of the rat liver… CONTINUE READING
