Abstract Myocardial ischemia often results in damaged heart structure and function, which can be restored through ischemia-reperfusion I-R in most cases. However, I-R can exacerbate myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury IRI. Luteolin, a widely distributed flavonoid, a member of a group of naturally occurring polyphenolic compounds found in many fruits, vegetables and medicinal herbs, has been reported to exhibit anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-carcinogenic activities. In recent years, luteolin has been shown to play an important role in the cardioprotection of IRI. However, its role and mechanism in cardioprotection against IRI has not been clearly elucidated with respect to the apoptosis pathway. The purpose of this paper is to review luteolin’s anti-apoptotic role and mechanism following I-R in rats, and indicate luteolin as a potential candidate for preventing and treating cardiovascular diseases.
