Reconstitution of Kidney Side Population Cells after Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury by Self-Proliferation and Bone Marrow-Derived Cell Homing
Phenotype of SP cells in the ischemic kidney after IRI. ((a)–(c)) The expression of CD45 (a), c-Kit (b), and CD31 (c) in left (white bars) and right (black bars) kidney SP from sham-operated and IRI animals. versus sham. versus left kidney. (d) Effect of hypoxia and SD alone or a combination of both on the expression of CD45, c-Kit, and CD31 in vitro. The cells without both hypoxia and SD stimulation were used as controls.
