|Protein kinase C inhibition ameliorates posttransplantation preservation injury in rat renal transplants.|
|PMID: 22932117 Owner: NLM Status: MEDLINE|
|BACKGROUND: Prolonged cold preservation frequently causes delayed renal graft function resulting from tubular epithelial injury. Inhibition of signal transduction downstream from protein kinase C (PKC) may reduce renal ischemia-reperfusion injury and confer renal graft protection. We therefore evaluated the effect of sotrastaurin, a small-molecule inhibitor of Ca²⁺-dependent and Ca²⁺-independent PKC isoforms, in comparison with mycophenolic acid (MPA) on rat renal transplants with prolonged cold preservation.
METHODS: Donor kidneys from male Lewis rats were cold stored in University of Wisconsin solution for 24 hr before syngeneic grafting. Recipients received sotrastaurin (30 mg/kg twice daily), MPA (20 mg/kg/day), or vehicle through gavage starting 1 hr after surgery. Renal function was evaluated by serum creatinine and histology on day 2 (acute injury) and day 7 (repair phase) after transplantation. Postreperfusion inflammation was determined by real-time polymerase chain reaction of proinflammatory genes and histology. Signaling mechanisms were studied by Western blotting and immunohistochemistry.
RESULTS: Sotrastaurin enhanced immediate transplant function, attenuated epithelial injury, and accelerated renal function recovery compared with MPA. Despite the stronger anti-inflammatory capacity of MPA, only sotrastaurin treatment achieved significant cellular protection with persisting reduced apoptosis of tubular epithelial cells. Decreased phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated protein kinase and p66Shc adaptor protein, both involved in cellular stress and apoptosis, were likely the responsible mechanism of action.
CONCLUSIONS: The PKC inhibitor sotrastaurin effectively ameliorated ischemia-reperfusion organ damage and promoted cytoprotection in a clinically relevant model of extended renal cold preservation followed by transplantation. Pharmacologic targeting of PKC may be beneficial for recipients receiving renal transplants at risk for delayed graft function.
