Thrombospondin-1 activation of signal-regulatory protein-α stimulates reactive oxygen species production and promotes renal ischemia reperfusion injury.


Ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) causes tissue and organ injury, in part, through alterations in tissue blood flow and the production of reactive oxygen species. The cell surface receptor signal-regulatory protein-α (SIRP-α) is expressed on inflammatory cells and suppresses phagocytosis, but the function of SIRP-α in IRI has not been determined. We… (More)
