Misonidazole binding in murine liver tissue: a marker for cellular hypoxia in vivo.

The hepatic microcirculation is believed to cause variable cellular oxygenation within the organ. In this study a marker of cellular hypoxia was used to demonstrate liver oxygen tension gradients in vivo. Covalent binding of misonidazole adducts to cellular macromolecules is enhanced by hypoxia. Autoradiographs of liver from mice treated with radiolabeled misonidazole demonstrated enhanced binding of adducts within hepatocytes surrounding hepatic veins. Livers from both hypoxic and normal mice had characteristic autoradiographic grain patterns reflecting regional oxygen tension variation in vivo. Differential binding of misonidazole adducts formed in hypoxic cells could have an application in studies of liver physiology and biochemistry.[1]
