Renal ischemia/reperfusion model. Male Lewis rats aged of 8–10 weeks were divided in 4 groups. MSCD − 7 group and MSCD + 1 group received i.v. (tail vein) injection of MSC (1.5 × 106 in 1 ml saline) 7 days before or 1 day after renal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R), respectively. Control groups SD − 7 and SD + 1 received equal volume of saline at similar time-points. Left renal ischemia by clamping the renal pedicle lasted 45 minutes. Right nephrectomy was simultaneously performed. Blood sample and left kidney were collected at 48 h post reperfusion.
