The unfolded protein response (UPR) – the endoplasmic reticulum stress response – is found in various pathologies including ischemia–reperfusion injury (IRI). However, its role during IRI is still unclear. Here, by combining two different bioinformatical methods – a method based on ordinary differential equations (Time Series Network Inference) and an algebraic method (probabilistic polynomial dynamical systems) – we identified the IRE1α–XBP1 and the ATF6 pathways as the main UPR effectors involved in cell’s adaptation to IRI. We validated these findings experimentally by assessing the impact of their knock-out and knock-down on cell survival during IRI.
