Abstract

To monitor cascade of events following alveolar extravasation of blood due to exposure to shock wave (SW), we conducted spatiotemporal assessment of myeloperoxidase (MPO), heme oxygenase 1 (HO-1), Cu,Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD-1), transferrin (TRF), 3-nitrotyrosine (3NTyr), alveolar endothelial cadherin (VE-CDH), and the CD11b adhesion molecules on leukocytes using electron microscopy, electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy, immunofluorescence imaging, and immunoblotting. Accumulation of HO-1, MPO, 3NTyr, and SOD-1 in HIL at the first 12 h was associated with transmigration of inflammatory leucocytes (ILK) into hemorrhagic lesions (HLs). Biodegradation of extravasated hemoglobin (exvHb) and deposition of iron in alveoli occurred at 3-56 h post-exposure and was preceded by LKC degranulation and accumulation of MPO, HO-1, and SOD-1 in HLs. These alterations were accompanied by appearance of heme and non-heme iron complexes in HLs. A significant increase in TRF-bound [Fe(3+)] (i.e., 14.6 +/- 5.3 microM vs. 4.8 +/- 2.1 microM immediately after exposure) and non-TRF complexes of [Fe(3+)] (i.e., 4.5 +/- 1.8 microM vs. < 0.3 microM immediately after exposure) occurred at 24 h post-exposure. Transmigrations of ILK, nitroxidative stress, and iron deposition in endothelial and epithelial cells were accompanied by destruction of endothelial integrity at 3 h post-exposure, and alveolar capillary network and necrotic changes in the pulmonary epithelial cells at 24-56 h post-exposure.
