Abstract: Objective To investigate effects of antioxidant stress protein hem e oxygenase-1 (HO-1) on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced endoplasm ic reticulum stress (ERS) of rat hepatocytes. Methods The BRL cells (rat hepatocyte cell line) were cultured. The hepatocytes were treated with LPS, LPS+HO-1 si RNA , HO-1 siRNA and PB S solution, respectively. The cell viability was m easured by trypan blue ex-clusion test. The apoptosis cells were detected by the fluorescent dye Hoechst 33258. E xpressions of GR P78, C HO P, caspase-12 and HO-1 were detected by Western blotting. Results LPS caused an in-crease of HO-1 protein expression of rat hepatocytes in a dose-dependent and tim e-dependent m anner, a up-regulation of GRP78, CHO P and caspase-12, a decrease in cellviability,and an increase in apopto-sis rate of hepatocytes. Pretreatm ent of HO-1 siRNA inhibited the up-regulation of LPS-induced HO-1, however, aggravated ERS and cellular injury. Conclusion HO-1 inhibites ERS-m ediated cellular injury of rat hepatocytes induced by LPS.
