Severe acute renal failure (ARF) remains a common, largely treatment-resistant clinical problem with disturbingly high mortality rates. Therefore, we tested whether administration of multipotent mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) to anesthetized rats with ischemia-reperfusion-induced ARF (40-min bilateral renal pedicle clamping) could improve the outcome through(More)
The regulation of renal function by extracellular nucleotides encompasses alterations in glomerular hemodynamics, microvascular function, tubuloglomerular feedback, tubular transport, cell growth or apoptosis, and transport of water and solutes in the medullary collecting duct. Nearly all cells can release ATP or other nucleotides that are then rapidly(More)
