Soluble Fms-like tyrosine kinase (sFlt-1/sVEGFR1) is a natural occurring antagonist of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Despite being a secreted, soluble protein lacking cytoplasmic and transmembrane domains, sFlt-1 can act locally and be protective against excessive microenvironmental VEGF concentration, or exert autocrine functions independently of VEGF. Circulating sFlt-1 may indiscriminately affect endothelial function and the microvasculature on distant target organs. The clinical...

Renal ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) adversely affects clinical outcomes following kidney transplantation. Understanding the cellular mechanisms and the changes in gene/protein expression following IRI may help to improve these outcomes. Serum soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase 1 (sFlt-1), a circulating antiangiogenic protein, is increased in the first week following kidney transplantation. We evaluated the casual relationship of elevated sFlt-1 levels with renal microvascular dysfunction follo...
