Adiponectin (APN) is known as an anti-inflammatory adipokine in obesity and atherosclerosis. Jin et al. examine the effects of APN deficiency in renal ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI) using APN knockout mice and demonstrate that APN deficiency protects mice from IRI. This newly described role for APN in acute kidney injury opens up the possibility of novel mechanistic and therapeutic strategies from the cross-fertilization of the fields of obesity and kidney diseases.

    Background: Ischemia/reperfusion induced acute renal failure causes excretory functional disorders of nephrons. Ischemia/reperfusion injury is accompanied by generation of reactive oxygen species that leads to dysfunction, injury, and death of renal cells. Antioxidants of plant origin minimize...

    Many studies indicate that the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) after renal ischemia / reperfusion (I/R) may initiate a cascade of cellular injury locally and in remote organs. It has been demonstrated that preconditioning by natural antioxidants (garlic, vitamin E, Vitamin A +...

    Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) have a pivotal role in the natural history of atherosclerosis and its cardiovascular consequences. Non-selective MMP inhibition with doxycycline appears as a potential strategy to reduce the residual risk observed in patients already at intensive lipid lowering...

    Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of minocycline on the renal dysfunction and injury caused by bilateral ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) of murine kidneys in vito. Methods: Male C57BL/6 mice were administered minocycline (45 mg/kg i.v.) or saline (0.9%, v/v, NaCl) 36...

    Background. Several studies demonstrated that mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) reverse acute kidney injury (AKI) by a paracrine mechanism rather than by MSC transdifferentiation. We recently demonstrated that microvesicles (MVs) released from MSCs may account for this paracrine mechanism by a...

    High-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) is a chromatin-binding nuclear molecule that has potent proinflammatory effects once released by damaged cells. In some disease models, carbon monoxide (CO) exhibits anti-inflammatory and protective properties. Here, we investigated whether the protective effect...
