We analyzed the role of the Na+/Ca2+ exchanger (NCX) in endothelin-1-aggravated hypoxia/reoxygenation-induced injury in renal epithelial LLC-PK1 cells. KB-R7943, a selective NCX inhibitor, suppressed hypoxia/reoxygenation-induced cell damage, whereas overexpression of NCX1 into cells enhanced it. Endothelin-1 significantly aggravated hypoxia/reoxygenation-induced injury in parental and NCX1-overexpressing LLC-PK1 cells. Such aggravation by endothelin-1 was not observed in cells overexpressing a deregulated NCX1 mutant, which displays no protein kinase C-dependent activation. These results suggest that Ca2+ overload via NCX plays a critical role in hypoxia/reoxygenation-induced renal tubular injury, and that endothelin-1 aggravates the cell damage through the activation of NCX.
