Role of extracellular signal-regulated protein kinase (ERK) in 17beta-estradiol-mediated attenuation of lung injury after trauma-hemorrhage.


BACKGROUND Extracellular signal-regulated protein kinase (ERK) is known to be involved in pro-inflammatory and chemotactic events in response to injury. The aim of this study is to elucidate whether ERK plays any role in 17beta-estradiol (E2)-mediated attenuation of lung injury and pro-inflammatory mediators after trauma-hemorrhage. METHODS Male Sprague… (More)
