BACKGROUND Acute kidney injury (AKI) severely worsens prognosis of hospitalized patients. Early Endothelial Outgrowth Cells act protective in murine acute ischemic renal failure and renoprotective actions of eEOCs have been documented to increase after cell pretreatment with 8-O-cAMP and Melatonin. Angiopoietin-1 is critically involved in maintaining(More)
BACKGROUND Autophagy enables cells to digest endogenous/exogenous waste products, thus potentially prolonging the cellular lifespan. Early endothelial progenitor cells (eEPCs) protect mice from ischemic acute kidney injury (AKI). The mid-term prognosis in AKI critically depends on vascular rarefication and interstitial fibrosis with the latter partly being(More)
BACKGROUND In recent years, early Endothelial Progenitor Cells (eEPCs) have been proven as effective tool in murine ischemic AKI and in diabetic nephropathy. The mechanisms of eEPC-mediated vasoprotection have been elucidated in detail. Besides producing a diverse range of humoral factors, the cells also act by secreting vasomodulatory microvesicles. Only(More)
Chloride electrodiffusion across the apical membrane of granular cells from toad urinary bladder, an analogue of mammalian principal cells, was examined using the patch clamp technique. A chloride conductance was demonstrated in cell-attached membrane patches exposed to barium chloride pipette solutions. A change in the pipette chloride concentration from(More)
