The progression of renal disease displays several characteristics, including proteinuria, apoptosis, inflammation, and fibrosis. In this study, we investigated the effect of long-term infusion of kinin in protection against salt-induced renal damage in Dahl salt-sensitive rats. Dahl salt-sensitive rats were fed a high-salt diet for 2 weeks and were then(More)
OBJECTIVE We assessed the role of glycogen synthase kinase-3beta (GSK-3beta) and kinin B2 receptor in mediating tissue kallikrein's protective effects against cardiac hypertrophy. METHODS We investigated the effect and mechanisms of tissue kallikrein using hypertrophic animal models of rats as well as mice deficient in kinin B1 or B2 receptor after aortic(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of adenovirus-carried VEGF165 transgene at 5 x 10(10) pfu (Ad-VEGF) on vascular formation, cardiac geometry and ventricular function in infarcted hearts of the rat and to explore the mechanism of Ad-VEGF-mediated actions on ventricular function by quantitative proteomic analysis. Seven days after(More)
