The cell cycle inhibitor p16(INK4A) (also known as cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2A) is expressed in vivo in many tissues with age. The exposure of certain chronic stresses can trigger p16(INK4A) expression and a senescence-like phenotype. We studied whether p16(INK4A) expression is induced in glomerular disease (GD). We performed p16(INK4A)(More)
