Hyperosmotic shock induces cytochrome c release and caspase-3 activation in Xenopus oocytes, but the regulators and signaling pathways involved are not well characterized. Here we show that hyperosmotic shock induces rapid calpain activation and high levels of Smac/DIABLO release from the mitochondria before significant amounts of cytochrome c are released(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY To correlate hepatitis A virus cellular receptor (HAVCR)/kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1) expression in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) tumours with patient outcome and study the consequences of HAVCR/KIM-1 ectodomain shedding. METHODS HAVCR/KIM-1 expression in ccRCC, oncocytomes, papillary carcinomas and unaffected tissue(More)
