Rho-kinase as a novel gene therapeutic target in treatment of cold ischemia/reperfusion-induced acute lethal liver injury: effect on hepatocellular NADPH oxidase system

Abstract

In the transplant surgery, reactive oxygen species (ROS) from the reperfused tissue cause ischemia-reperfusion injury, resulting in the primary graft failure. We have recently reported that Rho-kinase, an effecter of the small GTPase Rho, plays an important role in the ROS production in the hyperacute phase of reperfusion; however, the sources and… (More)
