Alterations of gluconeogenesis by ischemic renal injury in rats.

This study was designed to determine changes in one metabolic function, gluconeogenesis (GLG), after ischemic renal injury. Tubule suspensions were prepared by collagenase treatment of SD rat kidneys on 1, 3, and 7 days after left renal artery and vein occlusion for 0-90 min and incubated in Krebs-Henseleit buffer with or without 2 mM pyruvate or malate aerobically. Glucose contents were assayed photometrically. On days 1 and 3 after ischemia for longer than 60 min, serum creatinine levels rose significantly. The tendency of increase of GLG was observed on days 1 and 3 after 10-60 min of ischemia. GLG increased significantly on day 1 after 30-min ischemia. On the other hand, GLG decreased significantly on day 1 after 90-min treatment. Morphologic damage was limited to the corticomedullary region on days 1 and 3 after ischemic times of 30 and 60 min. These results suggest that renal GLG is stimulated to supply energy for ATP decrease by ischemia and for further regeneration in extraproximal segments along the nephron.[1]
