Quantitative real-time reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction for proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines of liver tissues at 6 h after reperfusion. a The mRNA levels of CCL2, ICAM-1 and VCAM-1 tended to be lower in the UW + H2 group than in the UW group. The HO-1 and SIRT-1 levels were increased in the UW + H2 group (n = 3–5 per group). b A Western blot analysis was performed. In the UW + H2 group, the HO-1 protein level was markedly upregulated (n = 3 for each group); *P < 0.05
