Cerebral heme oxygenase 1 and 2 spatial distribution is modulated following injury from hypoxia-ischemia and middle cerebral artery occlusion in rats.
The regional and cellular distribution of heme oxygenase (HO)-1 and -2 following cerebral ischemia has not been ascertained. Employing the transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) and hypoxia-ischemia (HI) models of unilateral brain injury, the aim was to elucidate immunolocalization of HO-1 and HO-2. Animals were sacrificed 3 days post-ischemia and immunohistochemistry and Western blotting were utilized to determine HO-1 and HO-2 expression. In the ipsilateral hemisphere following H...Expand abstract
