We examined the hypothesis that senescence represents a proximate mechanism by which the kidney is damaged in type 2 diabetic nephropathy (DN). As a first step, we studied whether the senescence-associated beta-galactosidase (SA-beta-Gal) and the cell cycle inhibitor p16INK4A are induced in renal biopsies from patients with type 2 DN. SA-beta-Gal staining(More)
The incidence and the rate of progression of chronic kidney diseases (CKD) are for most diseases greater in men than in age-matched women. We have previously shown that testosterone (T) promotes the apoptosis of proximal tubule kidney cells. To better understand the downstream signaling process associated with T-induced apoptosis, we examined the(More)
