48 hr after transplantation of CM-DiI -labeled BM-SCs with or without SDF-1[alpha] preconditioning, STZ-induced diabetes mice were killed and single cell suspensions of pancreas, lung, liver and spleen were analyzed for the presence of CM-DiI -positive cells by flow cytometry.
Ischaemic preconditioning reduces the secretion of proinflammatory cytokines, which are secreted from the ischaemic tissue, by decreasing endothelial dysfunction and inhibiting P-selectin augmentation inducted by TNF (25, 26).
One potential problem with RIPC studies is that they target only the early phase of preconditioning protection.
