Kim et al. show that isoflurane uses a tubule-based transforming growth factor-β/CD73-dependent process that generates adenosine to protect mice from ischemic acute kidney injury (AKI) with effects to prevent the 'no-reflow phenomenon' and decrease inflammation. While direct cytoprotection occurred in culture, extensive research suggests that in vivo adenosine protection from rodent ischemic AKI is mediated by a mutually cooperative mechanism involving blood flow, inflammation, and innate immunity through multiple adenosine receptors with promiscuous actions on diverse cell types.
