We have previously shown that cold ischemia (CI) results in an increase in caspase-3 activity, increased tubular apoptosis, and brush border injury (BBI) in mouse kidneys. The 13-lined ground squirrel (Ictidomys tridecemlineatus) is a hibernating mammal found in the central US. It undergoes yearly hibernation of ~ 6 months, during which time core body temperature (CBT) falls to 2-4°C for up to 5-18 days at a time. Since hibernation is a normal part of the animal's life-cycle, we hypothesized that squirrel kidneys were protected from tubular injury caused by CI. Methods: The kidneys of 1-2 year old summer squirrels were perfused with cold University of Wisconsin (UW) solution. The contralateral right kidney was immediately used as a control and the left kidney was stored in UW for 72 hours at 4°C. The % of tubules displaying BBI were counted and scored by a pathologist as follows: 0 = no changes, 1 = <10%, 2 = 11-25%, 3 = 26-45%, 4 = 46-75%, 5 > 75%. Apoptotic tubular cells were identifed and counted using the following morphologic criteria: cellular rounding and shrinkage, nuclear chromatin compaction and formation of apoptotic bodies. Caspase-3/7 activity was measured using the fluorescent substrate DEVD-AMC.Results. There was a small increase in caspase-3/7 activity in the squirrel kidneys vs. a massive increase in the mouse kidneys. There was no increase in apoptosis or BBI after 72 hours of cold ischemia compared to a significant increase in mice. Conclusion. We have shown that 13-lined ground squirrel kidneys are resistant to severe kidney injury during prolonged CI. This protection appears to be due in part to markedly reduced caspase-3/7 activity, and reduced apoptosis. Remarkably, after 72 hours of CI, there was no significant increase in BBI. Further study of the mechanisms by which this protection is achieved is warranted.
