rSj-Cys reduced liver injury caused by CLP-induced sepsis. a The serum levels of ALT and AST were reduced in mice treated with rSj-Cys. b Representative liver sections showing reduced hepatocytes swelling and inflammatory cell infiltration in rSj-Cys treated mice (×200; Scale-bars: 100 μm) (red arrow: hepatocellular necrosis; black arrow: inflammatory cell) and the improved liver injury score in rSj-Cys treated mice (c). The results are shown as the mean ± SEM for each group (n = 6). *P < 0.05, ***P < 0.001
