β-Patchoulene Preconditioning Protects Mice Against Hepatic Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury by Regulating Nrf2/HO-1 Signaling Pathway.



Hepatic ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is one of the main causes of liver dysfunction after the liver resection and transplantation. Hepatic I/R was characterized by the tissue hypoxia during ischemia phase and oxidative stress and immune response during hypoxia-reoxygenation. The objectives of the present study were to determine the protective effects of β-patchoulene (β-PAE), a novel bioactive agent, in a mice model of hepatic I/R injury and to explore its potential mechanisms.
