Introduction: Neutrophil Gelatinase-associated Lipocalin (NGAL/Lcn-2) expression is associated with ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI) following transplantation and correlates with polymorphonuclear cell infiltration. To get insight into the regulatory role of Lcn-2 during IRI the expression[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
