Renal Ischemia Regulates Marinobufagenin Release in Humans.
Summary of "Renal Ischemia Regulates Marinobufagenin Release in Humans."
Cardiotonic steroids, including marinobufagenin, are a group of new steroid hormones found in plasma and urine of patients with congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, and chronic renal failure. In animal studies, partial nephrectomy induces marinobufagenin elevation, cardiac hypertrophy, and fibrosis. The objective of this study is to test the effect of renal ischemia on marinobufagenin levels in humans with renal artery stenosis (RAS). To test this, plasma marinobufagenin levels were measured in patients with RAS of the Prospective Randomized Study Comparing Renal Artery Stenting With or Without Distal Protection, non-RAS patient controls who were scheduled for coronary angiography, and normal healthy individuals. Marinobufagenin levels were significantly higher in patients with RAS compared with those of the other 2 groups. Multivariate analysis shows that occurrence of RAS is independently related to marinobufagenin levels. In addition, renal artery revascularization by stenting partially reversed marinobufagenin levels in the patients with RAS (0.77+/-0.06 nmol/L at baseline; 0.66+/-0.06 nmol/L at 24 hours; and 0.61+/-0.05 nmol/L at 1 month). In conclusion, we have found that marinobufagenin levels are increased in patients with RAS, whereas reversal of renal ischemia by stenting treatment reduces marinobufagenin levels. These results suggest that RAS-induced renal ischemia may be a major cause of marinobufagenin release.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Severe systemic manifestation of trauma and ischemia involving soft tissues, principally skeletal muscle, due to prolonged severe crushing. It leads to increased permeability of the cell membrane and to the release of potassium, enzymes, and myoglobin from within cells. Ischemic renal dysfunction secondary to hypotension and diminished renal perfusion results in acute tubular necrosis and uremia.
A hormone secreted by the ADRENAL CORTEX that regulates electrolyte and water balance by increasing the renal retention of sodium and the excretion of potassium.
Hardening of the KIDNEY due to infiltration by fibrous connective tissue (FIBROSIS), usually caused by renovascular diseases or chronic HYPERTENSION. Nephrosclerosis leads to renal ISCHEMIA.
A 14-amino acid peptide named for its ability to inhibit pituitary GROWTH HORMONE release, also called somatotropin release-inhibiting factor. It is expressed in the central and peripheral nervous systems, the gut, and other organs. SRIF can also inhibit the release of THYROID-STIMULATING HORMONE; PROLACTIN; INSULIN; and GLUCAGON besides acting as a neurotransmitter and neuromodulator. In a number of species including humans, there is an additional form of somatostatin, SRIF-28 with a 14-amino acid extension at the N-terminal.
Inappropriate Adh Syndrome
A condition of HYPONATREMIA and renal salt loss attributed to overexpansion of BODY FLUIDS resulting from sustained release of ANTIDIURETIC HORMONES which stimulates renal resorption of water. It is characterized by normal KIDNEY function, high urine OSMOLALITY, low serum osmolality, and neurological dysfunction. Etiologies include ADH-producing neoplasms, injuries or diseases involving the HYPOTHALAMUS, the PITUITARY GLAND, and the LUNG. This syndrome can also be drug-induced.
