NLRP3 Inflammasome Mediates Albumin-induced Renal Tubular Injury through Impaired Mitochondrial Function*
Background: The role of NLRP3 inflammasome in albuminuria-induced renal injury and the underlying mechanism remain elusive. Results: Albumin-induced NLRP3 inflammasome activation resulted in theExpand

Mitochondrial dysfunction confers albumin-induced NLRP3 inflammasome activation and renal tubular injury.
Proteinuria is involved in the development of tubular lesions and in the progressive loss of renal function in chronic kidney diseases via uncertain mechanisms. Growing evidence suggests a pathogenicExpand

Dysfunction of the PGC-1α-mitochondria axis confers adriamycin-induced podocyte injury.
Adriamycin (ADR)-induced nephropathy in animals is an experimental analog of human focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, which presents as severe podocyte injury and massive proteinuria and has aExpand

MicroRNA-214 promotes chronic kidney disease by disrupting mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation.
Mitochondria are critical in determining a cell's energy homeostasis and fate, and mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in the pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease (CKD). We sought toExpand

Activation of ERK1/2 by NADPH oxidase-originated reactive oxygen species mediates uric acid-induced mesangial cell proliferation.
Hyperuricemia is associated with kidney complications including glomerulosclerosis and mesangial cell (MC) proliferation by poorly understood mechanisms. The present study investigated the underlyingExpand

Angiotensin II Stimulates the NLRP3 Inflammasome to Induce Podocyte Injury and Mitochondrial Dysfunction
Background: We previously reported that the NLRP3 inflammasome played an important role in mediating the podocyte injury induced by aldosterone. However, more studies on the role of the NLRP3Expand

Reactive oxygen species-initiated autophagy opposes aldosterone-induced podocyte injury.
Evidence has demonstrated that aldosterone (Aldo) is involved in the development and progression of chronic kidney diseases. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the role of autophagyExpand
