Hemin-increased lung HO-1 expression and survival rates in rats with OLT. Representative western blots analysis (a, b) of the expression of HO-1 in lung tissue of groups sham, OALT + saline, OALT + Hemin and OALT + ZnPP groups at 8 h after reperfusion. Rats, intraperitoneally injected with saline, hemin (30 mg/kg) and ZnPP (20 mg/kg) separately in corresponding groups 24 h before operation, were received celiotomy and vascular separation with or without OALT. β-actin was run as an internal standard. The results were expressed as the mean ± SD, n = 8 per group. The survival rates during 36 h after reperfusion; n = 18 per group (c). *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, one-way ANOVA with Tukey test
