Abstract

Cerebral ischemia‑reperfusion injury (CIRI) usually causes detrimental complications following reperfusion therapy in stroke patients. The present study systematically investigated the regulatory mechanism involved in the pathogenesis of CIRI using gene set enrichment analysis of the transient middle cerebral artery occlusion mouse stroke model. The results revealed a total of 13 CIRI‑related transcription factors (TFs), including CCAAT enhancer binding protein b (Cebpb), Cebpa, early growth response‑1, Fos, Rela, Jund, signal transduction and activator of transcription 5a/b, transformation related protein 53, GLI family zinc finger 2 (Gli2), Sp3, TF AP‑2 α (Tfap2a) and spleen focus forming virus proviral integration oncogene (Spi1). To the best of our knowledge, five TFs (Cebpa, Gli2, Sp3, Tfap2a and Spi1) were the first to be reported associated with CIRI in the present study. The five novel CIRI‑related TFs were mainly associated with pathways of inflammation and responses to reperfusion, including the tumor necrosis factor signaling pathway (Gli2, Spi1 and Tfap2a, P=0.0035, 0.0035 and 0.048, respectively), interleuking‑17 signaling pathway (Cebpa, Gli2, Sp3, Spi1 and Tfap2a, P=0.019, 0.047, 0.019, 0.035 and 0.005, respectively) and fluid shear stress and atherosclerosis (Gli2, Sp3, Spi1 and Tfap2a, P=0.047, 0.046, 0.013 and 0.003, respectively). These results may improve understanding of the potential molecular mechanism underlying the pathogenesis of CIRI at the genome‑wide level.
