OBJECTIVE Iron is associated with the pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Activation of mineralocorticoid receptor signaling is implicated in CKD; however, a link between iron and mineralocorticoid receptor signaling in CKD remains unknown. We have previously shown that long-term dietary iron restriction leads to increased sodium and decreased(More)
OBJECTIVE Iron accumulation is associated with the pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, little is known about the effects of isolated iron restriction against CKD. We have recently reported that iron restriction prevents the development of renal damage in the well established 5/6 nephrectomy rat model of CKD. Herein, we investigated the(More)
Although iron is reported to be associated with the pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease, it is unknown whether iron participates in the pathophysiology of nephrosclerosis. Here, we investigate whether iron is involved in the development of hypertensive nephropathy and the effects of iron restriction on nephrosclerosis in salt- loaded stroke-prone(More)
Iron accumulation is associated with the pathophysiology of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Renal fibrosis is a final common feature that contributes to the progression of CKD; however, little is known about the association between renal iron accumulation and renal interstitial fibrosis in CKD. Here we investigate the effects of iron chelation on renal(More)
