Genetic determinants of delayed graft function after kidney transplantation.
BACKGROUND: Intracellular concentration of reactive oxygen species is held within tight physiological limits by enzymes with scavenging and repair functions. Under extreme conditions such as prolonged cold ischemia, these enzymes may be unable to adequately protect the organ, resulting in reperfusion injury that renders the graft dysfunctional after transplantation. In this study, we investigated normal human variation of some of these inducible enzymes to determine if certain phenotypes cou...Expand abstract
