    Sevoflurane preconditioning has been proved to possess therapeutic effects on stress. However, the mechanism by which sevoflurane preconditioning protects against stress remains unclear. In this study, an acute model of heat stress in C.eleans was established. We investigated the dose-response of sevoflurane exposure on coordinated movement in C.elegans and time course for protection against heat stress of sevoflurane preconditioning to determine the optimal concentration and time point in the following experiments. EC99 of sevoflurane is 1.7% (1.3EC50) and sevoflurane preconditioning exerts the maximal protection at 6 hours after incubation, and these 2 parameters were used in our following experiments. We found that sevoflurane preconditioning increased DAF-16 nuclear translocation and enhanced the expression of DAF-16 during heat stress in N2 strain of C.elegans. DAF-16 mutation abolished the sevoflurane preconditioning-induced protection for heat stress. Furthermore, suppression of IMB-2 by RNAi prevented the upregulation of DAF-16 and enhancement of stress resistance caused by sevoflurane preconditioning. Overall, this work reveals that sevoflurane preconditioning increases the expression of DAF-16 via IMB-2 to enhance the stress resistance of C.elegans. © The Author(s) 2022.
