Aldosterone-mediated regulation of ENaC α, β, and γ subunit proteins in rat kidney
Aldosterone stimulates sodium transport in the renal collecting duct by activating the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC). To investigate the basis of this effect, we have developed a novel set ofExpand

Association of depression with malnutrition in chronic hemodialysis patients.
BACKGROUND Depression is the most common psychological complication and may increase mortality in chronic hemodialysis patients. Because depression could be associated with poor oral intake andExpand

Treating lithium-induced nephrogenic diabetes insipidus with a COX-2 inhibitor improves polyuria via upregulation of AQP2 and NKCC2.
Prostaglandin E(2) may antagonize vasopressin-stimulated salt absorption in the thick ascending limb and water absorption in the collecting duct. Blockade of prostaglandin E(2) synthesis byExpand

Impact of Burn Size and Initial Serum Albumin Level on Acute Renal Failure Occurring in Major Burn
Background: Acute renal failure (ARF) is not a rare occurrence in severe burns and is an important complication leading to an increase in mortality. The severity of the burn is largely determined byExpand

Tempol or candesartan prevents high-fat diet-induced hypertension and renal damage in spontaneously hypertensive rats.
BACKGROUND Obesity has been strongly associated with the development and aggravation of hypertension and chronic kidney disease. To date, the systemic renin-angiotensin system (RAS) has been known toExpand

Hyponatraemia induced by low-dose intravenous pulse cyclophosphamide.
BACKGROUND Cyclophosphamide is an alkylating agent and was traditionally known to potentiate the renal action of vasopressin. Although low-dose intravenous pulse cyclophosphamide therapy is beingExpand
