Abstract: ENDOTHELIAL ischemia/reperfusion injury is critical for organ preservation, yet the mechanisms of intracellular damage are little understood. Permeabilization of the cell membrane disrupts ion homeostasis, leading to secondary mitochondrial defects by influx of high extracellular Ca2+ .1 In contrast, primary mitochondrial damage is due to short-term (4 to 8-hour) cold ischemia/reoxygenation (CIR) of endothelial cells in University of Wisconsin (UW) or histidine-tryptophane-ketoglutarate (HTK) solution, while the cell membrane remains intact.2 This study was designed to further characterize mitochondrial defects in CIR injury of endothelial cells.
