Diabetic nephropathy is a lethal complication of diabetes mellitus and a major type of chronic kidney disease. Dysregulation of the Akt pathway and its downstream cascades, including mTOR, NFκB, and Erk1/2, play a critical role in the development of diabetic nephropathy. Astragaloside IV is a major component of Huangqi and exerts renal protection in a mouse(More)
Muscle atrophy is one of the serious complications of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Dysregulation of mitochondrial quality control (MQC) process, including decrease mitochondrial biogenesis, impair mitochondrial dynamics and induce activation of mitophagy, play an important role in mediating muscle wasting. This study aimed to observe effects of(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect and possible mechanism of Astragaloside IV (AS-IV) on retarding the progression of diabetic nephropathy (DN) in a type 2 diabetic animal model, db/db mice. Eight-week-old male db/db diabetic mice and their nondiabetic littermate control db/m mice were used in the present study. AS-IV was administered to(More)
