Bar graphs demonstrating the geometric mean and 95% confidence interval for plasma aspartate transaminase and plasma alanine transaminase in each group. [Sham – Group 1 (sham laparotomy); IR only – Group 2 (ischemiareperfusion without prior adenosine therapy); A+IR – Group 3 (ischemiareperfusion with prior adenosine pre-treatment); L-NA+A+IR – Group 4 (ischemiareperfusion with administration of the eNOS inhibitor NG-Nitro-L-arginine prior to adenosine preconditioning).
