Acute cardiorenal syndrome imperils the survival of half of cardiac arrest survivors and that of many patients with myocardial infarction or acute heart failure. Patients who survive have high risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The hypothesis in this proposal is that cardiac arrest and cardiopulmonary resuscitation in the mouse (CA/CPR) causes filtration and tubular endocytosis of cardiac LIM protein (CSRP3), a soluble inducer of renal fibrosis, which initiates chronic kidney disease via Wing...
