There is very little work on the expression of TRPM6/7 in ischemia reperfusion models. In previous studies, after ischemia, reperfusion had been kept limited to 24 h, yet in our study, expressions of these channels were elucidated after its modification to 48 h to establish what kind of changes renal tissues undergo. For the current study, 20 Wistar albino rats were divided into two groups equally. Group I: control group, Group II = I/R group (60 min ischemia + 48 h reperfusion). For the mRNA analysis, right kidneys of I/R group was used as a reference in order to eliminate genetic differences. The left renal artery (I/R generated part) of I/R area was removed from all rats in the second group. Likewise, normal tissues of right renal artery were removed from all rats. Histopathologic scoring of the tissue samples were achieved semi-quantitatively according to normal tissue composition. Consequently, both TRPM6 and TRPM7 expression levels were decreased in all groups according to control groups, yet results were not counted as significant (p > 0.05). Additionally, correlation analysis confirmed these results. Also, I/R performed kidneys had more tissue damage compared to control group. To conclude, our study results suggest that TRPM6/7 expressions may be increased and after 48 h of reperfusion expression levels of these two stored to normal levels. At the same time, damages have occurred in renal tissues after ischemia. These damages were considered to be resulted from the oxidative effects as previously reported.
