Figure 1

Effects of PEP, glucose, or NAC on mouse liver damage during cold preservation. (a) Changes in LDH concentrations in the preservation solutions; PBS , PBS + 100 mM PEP , PBS + 100 mM glucose , and PBS + 10 mM NAC . Each bar represents the mean SEM. * and ** , compared with the PBS group. # , compared with the PBS + 100 mM PEP group. (b) Histological pictures of the liver 72 h after cold preservation. The liver tissues were fixed with 10% buffered formalin, embedded in paraffin, sectioned, and stained with hematoxylin-eosin. Nonpreserved fresh liver served as a control. Scale bar μm.
