Abstract

The cerebral ischemia-reperfusion model was established using the suture occlusion method, and rats were intraperitoneally given 8 mL/kg Danhong injection once a day prior to model establishment. Rat brain tissues were harvested at 6, 24, 48, 72 hours after reperfusion. Immunohistochemical staining showed that transforming growth factor-β1 expression increased, while Golgi matrix protein GM130 expression decreased after cerebral ischemia-reperfusion. Danhong injection was shown to significantly up-regulate the expression of transforming growth factor-β1 and GM130, and expression levels peaked at 7 days after reperfusion. At 7 days after cerebral ischemia-reperfusion, Golgi morphology was damaged in untreated rats, while Golgi morphology breakage was not observed after intervention with Danhong injection. These experimental findings indicate that Danhong injection can up-regulate the expression of transforming growth factor-β1 and GM130, and maintain Golgi stability, thus playing a neuroprotective role in rats after cerebral ischemia-reperfusion.
