Aim: To explore molecular mechanisms underlying liver ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI). Materials & methods: Four Gene Expression Omnibus datasets comprising liver transplantation data were collected for a comprehensive analysis. A proteomic analysis was performed and used for correlations analysis with transcriptomic. Results & conclusion: Ten differentially expressed genes were co-upregulated in four Gene Expression Omnibus datasets, including ATF3, CCL4, DNAJB1, DUSP5, JUND, KLF6, NFKBIA, PLAUR, PPP1R15A and TNFAIP3. The combined analysis demonstrated ten coregulated genes/proteins, including HBB, HBG2, CA1, SLC4A1, PLIN2, JUNB, HBA1, MMP9, SLC2A1 and PADI4. The coregulated differentially expressed genes and coregulated genes/proteins formed a tight interaction network and could serve as the core factors underlying IRI. Comprehensive and combined omics analyses revealed key factors underlying liver IRI, and thus having potential clinical significance.
