Effect of streptozotocin-induced diabetes and transient global brain ischemia on apoptosis in the thymus of rats

The influence of incomplete global ischemia-reperfusion of the brain on the activity of pro- and antiapoptotic processes in the thymocytes by the intensity of p53 and Bcl-2 - proteins expressions has been investigated. It has been shown that in the cortical zone of thymus of rats with a four-month diabe­tes, as well as in the control rats and rats with diabetes mellitus after brain ischemia, the antiapoptotic processes are domi­nated. In the medullar zone of the gland in rats with diabetes, complicated and uncomplicated with brain ischemia-reperfusion the antiapoptotic mechanisms predominate too, but to a lesser extent than in the cortical zone.
