Mechanisms underlying modulation of podocyte TRPC6 channels by suPAR: Role of NADPH oxidases and Src family tyrosine kinases

Publication date: Available online 8 August 2018Source: Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Molecular Basis of DiseaseAuthor(s): Eun Young Kim, Naghmeh Hassanzadeh Khayyat, Stuart E. DryerAbstractThe soluble urokinase receptor (suPAR) has been implicated in the pathogenesis of chronic kidney diseases (CKD) and may function as a circulating “permeability factor” driving primary focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). Here we examined the mechanisms whereby suPAR causes mobilization and increased activation of Ca2+-permeable TRPC6 channels, which are also implicated in FSGS. Treatment of immortalized mouse podocytes with recombinant suPAR for 24 h caused a marked increase in cytosolic reactive oxygen species (ROS) that required signaling through integrins. This effect was associated with increased assembly of active cell surface NADPH oxidase 2 (Nox2) complexes and was blocked by the Nox2 inhibitor apoycynin. Treatment with suPAR also evoked a functionally measurable increase in TRPC6 channels that was blocked by concurrent treatment with the ROS-quencher TEMPOL as well as by inhibition of Rac1, an essential component of active Nox2 complexes. Elevated ROS evoked by exposing cells to suPAR or H2O2 caused a marked increase in the abundance of tyrosine-phosphorylated proteins including Src, and suPAR-evoked Src activation was blocked by TEMPOL. Moreover, mobilization and increased activation of TRPC6 by suPAR or H2O2 was blocked by concurrent exposure to PP...

ABSTRACT Objective: Chronic kidney disease is characterized by progressive and irreversible loss of kidney function. The impact of this disease on oral health also presents controversial results. The aim of the study was to determine oral health conditions and oral symptoms of patients with Chronic kidney disease undergoing hemodialysis. Methods: A cross-sectional study on a population with chronic renal failure was performed. Anamnesis and oral examination, decayed, miss and filled teeth (DMFT) index, community periodontal index, simplified oral hygiene index (OHI-S) and gingival index were conducted. Data were processed ...

BurganosAbstractClassic hemodialysis only provides a limited removal of protein bound uremic toxins (PBUT) in patients with chronic kidney disease. A bioartificial kidney device, BAK, composed of a living cell monolayer of conditionally immortalized proximal tubule epithelial kidney cells (ciPTEC) cultured of hollow fiber polymeric membrane can remove protein bound uremic toxins from the blood in combination with classic hemodialysis. The development and clinical implemen...

AbstractWe investigated the median estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) changes in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients treated front line with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). A large cohort of 397 patients —320 treated front line with imatinib, 25 with dasatinib, and 53 with nilotinib—was retrospectively analyzed at a single institution. The eGFR was calculated according to the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration equation for all patients at baseline and then at 6 and 12 months, and at the last follow-up. Taking into account eGFR changes during the first year of treatment and ex...

Authors: Franco ÁO, Starosta RT, Roriz-Cruz M Abstract One of the mechanisms proposed for chronic kidney disease (CKD)-related cognitive impairment is the accumulation of uremic toxins due to the deterioration of the renal clearance function. Cognition can be categorized into five major domains according to its information processing functions: memory, attention, language, visual-spatial, and executive. We performed a review using the terms 'uric acid', 'indoxyl sulfate', 'p-cresyl sulfate', 'homocysteine', 'interleukins' and 'parathyroid hormone'. These are the compounds that were found to be strongly assoc...

The aim of the study was to improve the frequency of diagnosing chronic kidney disease (CKD) in seniors with diabetes. Less than 10% of those with stages 2 or 3 CKD and less than 50% with stage 4 CKD know they have renal impairment. A pre-post study design was implemented in 2 primary care facilities. The study sample was 222 older adults aged> 55 years with diabetes. A medical record audit verified the number of patients diagnosed with CKD doubled from 16 preintervention to 32 postintervention (P  = .014).

Authors: Esmaeili Jadidi M, Oliaei F Abstract Urinary tract anomalies are common and comprise about 20% to 30% of total congenital anomalies. This spectrum consists of many different anomalies of the urinary tract that may be syndromic or nonsyndromic with different etiologies. In this case report, a patient with single kidney and urinary tract signs is introduced that was diagnosed accidentally. The finding of different anomalies in different organ systems should lead us to examination of the intactness of the urinary tract. In these disorders, if there is no need for immediate intervention, long-term follow-up ca...

Authors: Gou SJ, Yu SB, Qiu HY, Hu ZX Abstract Awareness of the uncommon associated clinical manifestations of immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related kidney disease is essential for the early diagnosis and effective treatment of patients. To the best of our knowledge, there have been few reports of patients with IgG4-related kidney disease associated with autoimmune hemolytic anemia. We here report a rare case of IgG4-related kidney disease associated with autoimmune hemolytic anemia. A 70-year-old man with kidney dysfunction and severe anemia had been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease and treated without any improve...

Authors: Yari Z, Mirmiran P Abstract Chronic kidney disease is defined as a glomerular filtration rate lower than 60 mL/min/1.73 m2, which is regarded as a public health priority and part of the growing burden of noncommunicable diseases. Reduced kidney function is concomitant with high levels of inflammatory factors, abnormal lipid profile, and anemia, as well as bone abnormalities, calcium deposition outside the bones, endothelial dysfunction, and cardiomyopathy. Furthermore, metabolic acidosis is a common complication in chronic kidney disease that is associated with secondary hyperparathyroidism and faster kidn...

However, tamoxifen is also an active estrogen analogue that binds with higher affinity to estrogen receptors and exhibits anti-apoptosis, anti-inflammation, and antifibrotic properties. Renal ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury is characterized by increased apoptosis and inflammation, so optimal utility of tamoxifen-inducible CreER genetic systems in I...
