Abstract OBJECTIVES: Microcirculatory derangements caused by ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) play a pivotal role in acute and graft pancreatitis. The inducible enzyme heme oxygenase 1 (HO-1) has been shown to decrease I/R injury by modulation of capillary perfusion in other organs. It was the aim of this study to evaluate the effect of HO-1 induction on pancreatic microcirculation after I/R. METHODS: Rats were randomized into 4 groups: (1) sham controls; (2) 1-hour ischemia and 2-hour reperfusion (I/R); (3) I/R + cobalt protoporphyrin (CoPP), an HO-1 inducer; and (4) I/R + CoPP + tin protoporphyrin, an HO inhibitor. Functional capillary density (FCD) and leukocyte endothelium interaction were analyzed using intravital microscopy during reperfusion. Expression of HO-1 mRNA, HO-1 protein, and HO activity were assessed by Northern blot, Western blot, and an HO activity assay. RESULTS: Functional capillary density decreased significantly in the I/R group as compared with sham controls. Cobalt protoporphyrin treatment increased FCD to control values. In contrast, HO inhibition in CoPP-pretreated animals lowered FCD and increased leukocyte endothelium interaction significantly. Cobalt protoporphyrin administration increased HO-1 mRNA, protein, and HO activity, whereas activity of the enzyme was reduced after injection of tin protoporphyrin. CONCLUSIONS: Heme oxygenase 1 plays a beneficial role in pancreatic microcirculatory derangements after I/R. This could be of therapeutic relevance after pancreas transplantation and other forms of postischemic pancreatitis.
