    Background: Haem oxygenase (HO-1), a heat shock or stress protein, is a rate-limiting enzyme in the conversion of pro-oxidant haem to biliverdin and carbon monoxide (CO). The products of haem catabolism serve regulatory and protective functions. Previous studies have shown that hypoxia induces...
