BACKGROUND Elevation of serum homocysteine is considered to contribute to endothelial dysfunction, which is considered to be the initial event in vascular disease following renal transplantation. We sought to investigate whether an association existed between serum homocysteine levels and endothelial dysfunction after renal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS Acetylcholine (Ach)-induced endothelium-dependent and sodium nitroprusside (SNP)-induced endothelial-independent… CONTINUE READING
