Diabetic nephropathy is associated with premature senescence. Our previous study showed that glomerular mesangial cells (GMCs) appeared to take on senescent phenotypes under high-glucose conditions in conjunction with the downregulation of connexin43 (Cx43). In this study, we investigated whether AMPK-mediated Cx43 expression and premature senescence in(More)
Renal fibrosis contributes to declining renal function in the elderly. What is unclear however, is whether epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) contributes to this age-related renal fibrosis. Here, we analyzed indicators of EMT during kidney aging and investigated the protective effects and mechanisms of short-term regimens of caloric restriction (CR) or(More)
