Table 1 Effects of NaHS on lung mitochondrial and cytosol Cyt-c protein expression in acute lung injury rats ( x ¯ ±s, n = 8)

From: In vivo study of the effects of exogenous hydrogen sulfide on lung mitochondria in acute lung injury in rats

Group Cyt-c (mitochondria) (Grayscale scan value) Cyt-c (cytosol) (Grayscale scan value) β-actin (Grayscale scan value)
control group 178.51 96.992 171.47
LPS injury group 41.177** 293.45** 183.66
L 62.846# 226.91# 182.52
M 88.344## 203.38## 196.02
H 115.27## 111.84## 169.28
  1. **P < 0.01,compared to the control group; # P < 0.05, ## P < 0.01, compared to the LPS injury group; L:LPS + low-dose NaHS group; M:LPS + middle-dose NaHS group;H: LPS + high-dose NaHS group.
  2. The lung mitochondrial Cyt-c protein expression was significantly decreased in the LPS injury group compared to the control group (P < 0.01). In three LPS + NaHS groups, lung mitochondrial Cyt-c protein expression was markedly increased compared to the LPS injury group (P < 0.05 or P < 0.01). The cytosol Cyt-c protein expression was significantly increased in the LPS injury group compared to the control group (P < 0.01). In three LPS + NaHS groups, cytosol Cyt-c protein expression was markedly decreased compared to the LPS injury group (P < 0.05 or P < 0.01).
