Abstract

Recovery from ischemic acute renal failure (ARF) involves a well-described regenerative process; however, recovery from ARF also results in a predisposition to a progressive renal disease that is not well understood. This study sought to identify alterations in renal gene expression in postischemic, recovered animals that might play important roles in this progressive disorder. RNA isolated from sham-operated control rats or rats 35 days after recovery from bilateral ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury was compared using a cDNA microarray containing ∼2,000 known rat genes. A reference hybridization strategy was utilized to define a 99.9% interval and to identify 16 genes that were persistently altered after recovery from I/R injury (12 were upregulated and 4 were downregulated). Real-time PCR verified the altered expression of six of eight genes that had been positively identified. Several genes that were identified had not previously been evaluated within the context of ARF. S100A4, a specific marker of fibroblasts, was identified in a population of interstitial cells that were present postischemic injury. S100A4-positive cells were also identified in tubular cells at earlier time points postischemia. Genes associated with calcification, including osteopontin and matrix Gla protein, were also enhanced postischemic injury. Several proinflammatory genes were identified, including complement C4, were enhanced in postischemic tissues. Conversely, renal kallikrein expression was specifically reduced in the postischemic kidney. In summary, genes with known inflammatory, remodeling, and vasoactive activities were identified in rat kidneys after recovery from ARF, some of which may play a role in altering long-term renal function after recovery from ARF.
