Abstract

The renal expression of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) is enhanced following induction of ischemic injury in rat. In cultured renal cells, TGF-β stimulates the synthesis of extracellular matrix. To link TGF- β1 expression with the regulation of extracellular matrix postischemia, we characterized the expression of several genes known to regulate extracellular matrix synthesis at various times during recovery from acute ischemic renal injury in rat. Levels of mRNA for plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1), tissue inhibitor of metalloprotease-1 (TIMP-1), α1(IV) collagen, and fibronectin-EIIIA (FN-EIIIA) mRNAs were significantly enhanced in kidneys within 12 h to 3 days after injury and remained elevated at 7-28 days postischemia relative to levels in kidneys of sham-operated controls. PAI-1 mRNA and peptide were localized in regenerating proximal tubules at 3 and 7 days postischemic injury. α1(IV) Collagen and FN-EIIIA mRNAs were expressed primarily in regenerating proximal tubule cells. Immunoreactivity for FN- EIIIA was enhanced in the tubular basement membrane (TBM) of regenerating proximal tubules, and α1(IV) collagen immunoreactivity was detected in thickened tubulointerstitial spaces. In contrast, TIMP-1 immunoreactivity was enhanced in distal nephron structures postischemia. Immunoneutralization of TGF-β in vivo attenuated the increases in FN-EIIIA, α1(IV) collagen, PAI- 1, and TIMP-1 mRNAs by 52%, 73%, 43%, and 27%, respectively. These data are consistent with TGF-β expression postischemic injury participating in renal regeneration of extracellular matrix homeostasis in the proximal TBM.
