β-Arrestin-2 attenuates hepatic ischemia-reperfusion injury by activating PI3K/Akt signaling

ARRB2 inhibits hepatocyte apoptosis in hepatic ischemia-reperfusion injury. (A) and (B), TUNEL staining of the liver tissue and quantitative analysis of TUNEL positive cells (green) in Sham, WT + IR and KO + IR groups. (C) and (D), Cleaved Caspase-3 protein level in liver tissue detected by Western Blotting. β-actin was used as an internal control. (E) and (F), The Immunohistochemical staining of Cleaved Caspase-3 in liver tissues. The data are presented as the Mean ± SD, n = 6. *P#P
