Aldosterone plays an important role in the regulation of blood pressure by modulating the activity of the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) that consists of α-, β-, and γ-subunits. Aldosterone induces a molecular weight shift of γENaC from 85 to 70 kDa that is necessary for the channel activation. In vitro experiments demonstrated that a dual cleavage(More)
The number of the chronic renal failure (CRF) patients is increasing explosively. Hypertension, proteinuria, inflammation, fibrosis, and oxidative stress are intertwined in a complicated manner that leads to the progression of CRF. However, the therapeutic strategies to delay its progression are limited. Since serine proteases are involved in many processes(More)
The effects of high-fat diet (HFD) and postprandial endotoxemia on the development of type 2 diabetes are not fully understood. Here we show that the serine protease prostasin (PRSS8) regulates hepatic insulin sensitivity by modulating Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4)-mediated signalling. HFD triggers the suppression of PRSS8 expression by inducing endoplasmic(More)
We previously reported that camostat mesilate (CM) had renoprotective and antihypertensive effects in rat CKD models. In this study, we examined if CM has a distinct renoprotective effect from telmisartan (TE), a renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAS) inhibitor, on the progression of CKD. We evaluated the effect of CM (400 mg/kg/day) and/or TE (10(More)
Interstitial fibrosis is a final common pathway for the progression of chronic kidney diseases. Activated fibroblasts have an extremely important role in the progression of renal fibrosis, and transforming growth factor (TGF)-β₁ is a major activator of fibroblasts. Since previous reports have indicated that serine protease inhibitors have a potential to(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS We have so far demonstrated the renoprotective effect of camostat mesilate (CM) in 5/6 nephrectomized rats at least partly through its antioxidant effect. However, precise mechanisms were not fully clarified. Therefore, we now examined the renoprotective and antioxidant mechanisms of CM by using the adenine-induced chronic kidney disease(More)
A serine protease prostasin has been demonstrated to have a pivotal role in the activation of the epithelial sodium channel. Systemic administration of adenovirus carrying human prostasin gene in rats resulted in an increase in plasma prostasin and aldosterone levels. However, the mechanism by which the elevation of prostasin levels in the systemic(More)
Thermal therapy has become a nonpharmacological therapy in clinical settings, especially for cardiovascular diseases. However, the practical role of thermal therapy on chronic kidney disease remains elusive. We performed the present study to investigate whether a modified thermal protocol, repeated mild thermal stimulation (MTS), could affect renal damages(More)
A 28-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus was referred to our hospital due to nephrotic-level proteinuria despite approximately 1 year of treatment with 50 to 60 mg/d of prednisolone and 100 to 150 mg/d of cyclosporine with methylprednisolone pulse therapy. Kidney biopsy showed diffuse global lupus nephritis (World Health Organization class 4-G(More)
Emerging evidence has suggested that aldosterone has direct deleterious effects on the kidney independently of its hemodynamic effects. However, the detailed mechanisms of these direct effects remain to be elucidated. We have previously reported that camostat mesilate (CM), a synthetic serine protease inhibitor, attenuated kidney injuries in Dahl(More)
