Introduction: Recently mitochondrial damage has been known to play a major role in various renal injury mechanisms including ischemia-reperfusion (IR) renal injury. Mitochondrial injury and reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation play a role in IR renal injury. NecroX-7 is recently developed compounds which are concentrated in mitochondria, and reduce mitochondrial reactive oxygen species and improve cell survival. We assessed the effects of NecroX-7 on IR renal injury.
Methods: Ischemic injury was induced by mineral oil on HK-2 cell culture, in vitro. Mitochondrial respiratory complex, membrane potential, and reactive oxygen generation were evaluated in control and ischemic HK-2 cells with or without NecroX-7. Cell survival was also evaluated. C57BL/6 mice (10 weeks old) were divided into 4 groups; vehicle (n=5) and NecroX-7 (10mg/kg intraperitoneal injection) treated sham groups (n=5), vehicle (n=7) and NecroX-7(n=7) treated IR (reperfusion 27 minutes after clamping of both renal arteries and veins) groups. Kidneys and blood were harvested 24hr after IR injury. We performed real time RT-PCR, western blot and immunohistochemistry for molecular study and H&E stain and PAS stain for histologic examination.
NecroX-7 treatment significantly increased survival of ischemic HK-2 cells. NecroX-7 treatment increased mitochondrial complex IV and oxygen consumption rate. Also it decreased the 3NT and 8-OH deoxyguanosine generation. The levels of BUN and serum creatinine in NecroX7 treated IR injured mice were significantly lower than those of vehicle treated IR injured mice (p <0.05). In microscopic examination, NecroX7 significantly reduced renal tubular epithelial cell necrosis and detachment. NecroX-7 reduced significantly 8-OH deoxyguanosine positive and TUNEL positive cells in IR injured kidneys. Also it significantly decreased the level of Bax/Bcl-2 ratio and phosphorylated caspase -3.
Conclusion: In conclusion, NecroX-7 enhances mitochondrial respiratory complex IV and reduces mitochondrial damage and ROS generation. Also it attenuates ischemia reperfusion renal injury.
