Abstract: Objective

To investigate the effect of intestinal ischemia-reperfusion on the protein expression of chemerin in C57BL/6J mice.


A total of 16 mice(C57BL/6J,specific pathogen free level)were randomly assigned into two groups(n=8 each):the intestinal ischemia-reperfusion group and the sham group. The intestinal ischemia-reperfusion state was achieved by blocking the super-mesenteric artery. After 60 minutes of ischemia followed by 60 minutes of reperfusion,we determined the protein level of chemerin in various organs and tissues by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and Western blot. The sham group underwent the same operation process except for the blocking of the super-mesenteric artery.


The protein level of chemerin was significantly elevated in distinctive organs and tissues in the state of intestinal ischemia-reperfusion(P<0.05).


The intestinal ischemia-reperfusion can remarkably increase the protein expression of chemerin in some organs and tissues.

Key words: intestinal ischemia-reperfusion, chemerin, adipocytokine, inflammation, oxidative damage
