BACKGROUND Glutamine (GLN) has been shown to confer cytoprotection by enhancing endogenous heat shock protein (HSP) expression. We hypothesized that GLN donor pretreatment protects rat renal grafts against severe preservation reperfusion injury (PRI). MATERIALS AND METHODS GLN (0.75 g/kg) or saline was administered i.p. to male donor rats 24 h and 6 h before donor nephrectomy. Kidneys (n = 6/group) were cold-stored in UW solution for 40 h and transplanted into bilaterally nephrectomized… CONTINUE READING
