    Heme is an essential molecule with contradictory biological functions. In hemoproteins such as hemoglobin and cytochromes protein-bound heme is a prosthetic group serving physiological functions as a transporter for oxygen and electrons. On the other hand free heme can have deleterious effects...

    Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury is the main cause of graft dysfunction and failure in vascular occlusion both during liver surgery and during liver transplantation. The pathophysiology of hepatic ischemia-reperfusion includes a number of mechanisms including oxidant stress that contribute to...

    Free heme contributes as a major threat to the oxidative tissue injuries because it catalyzes the formation of reactive oxygen species. When free heme concentration is increased, it results in the induction of heme oxygenase-1 (HO- 1), which then breaks free heme down. As such, HO-1 plays a...

    Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) is the inducible isoform of heme oxygenase and plays a role in defense against cellular stress. The effects of HO-1 on cardiac muscle contractility, however, are unknown.
