Ethylene glycol-mediated tubular injury: identification of critical metabolites and injury pathways.

Abstract

Ethylene glycol (EG) intoxication produces multisystem organ injury, including acute renal failure. Although EG must be metabolized to toxic intermediates to induce organ damage, the specific metabolite(s) responsible and the underlying pathogenic mechanisms remain poorly defined. To explore these issues, isolated mouse proximal tubular segments (PTSs) were… (More)
