    Abstract: Ischemic postconditioning was induced by brief cycles of ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) at the end of ischemia scavenge brain tissues from I/R injury in several animal models. However, the relationship between ischemic postconditioning and gap junction (GJ) yet to be explored. Here, we investigated whether the beneficial effect of hypoxic postcondition... Show More
