Özet

Nitric oxide (NO) has been reported to function in both cytoprotective and cytotoxic tissue ischemia-reperfusion (I/R). In this study, we evaluated the effects of L-arginine, the substrate for NO, and N-G-nitro L-argine methyl ester (L-NAME), NO synthase (NOS) inhibitor on superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme activity, malondialdehyde (MDA), a marker of lipid peroxidation, nitrate levels, and histopathological structure in rat sciatic nerve 2 h after ischemia, followed by 3 h of reperfusion.
