Abstract

Sublethal hypoxic injury in rat and rabbit hearts was accompanied by a biochemical redistribution of cathepsin D activity from the particle to the supernatant fraction of the tissue homogenate, which was partially reversible on reoxygenation. Immunofluorescent staining for cathepsin D failed to reveal major anatomic release of the acid hydrolase until necrosis was present, suggesting that the earlier biochemical redistribution was primarily a result of increased lysosomal fragility during homogenization, with significant intracellular diffusion of the enzyme occurring only as irreversible damage took place. Hypoxia produced enlargement of both cathepsin-D-staining lysosomes and nonstaining vacuoles, as well as their aggregation. These changes were intensified during reoxygenation and recovery of reversibly damaged hearts, suggesting a possible role for the lysosomal-vacuolar apparatus in myocytic repair following hypoxic injury.
