Accumulating evidence demonstrated that miRNAs are highly involved in kidney fibrosis and Epithelial-Eesenchymal Transition (EMT), however, the mechanisms of miRNAs in kidney fibrosis are poorly understood. In this work, we identified that miR542-3p could promote EMT through down-regulating bone morphogenetic protein 7 (BMP7) expression by targeting BMP7(More)
The metanephric mesenchyme (MM) cells are a subset of kidney progenitor cells and play an essential role in mesenchymal-epithelial transition (MET), the key step of nephron generation. Six2, a biological marker related to Wnt signaling pathway, promotes the proliferation, inhibits the apoptosis and maintains the un-differentiation of MM cells. Besides, LiCl(More)
Nephron progenitor cells surround around the ureteric bud tips (UB) and inductively interact with the UB to originate nephrons, the basic units of renal function. This process is determined by the internal balance between self-renewal and consumption of the nephron progenitor cells, which is depending on the complicated regulation networks. It has been(More)
Apobec-1 complementation factor (A1CF) is a heterogeneous nuclear ribonuceloprotein (hnRNP) and mediates apolipoprotein-B mRNA editing. A1CF can promote the regeneration of the liver by post-transcriptionally stabilizing Interleukin-6 (IL-6) mRNA. It also contains two transcriptional variants-A1CF64 and A1CF65, distinguished by the appearance of a(More)
To seek out the potential microRNAs (miRNAs) that target Wilms' tumor suppressor 1 (WT1), a transcription factor required for progenitor proliferation as well as normal development of the kidney, and to clarify the effects of the miRNAs on WT1, the 3'-untranslated region (3'‑UTR) of WT1 was initially analyzed and miR‑743a, a seldom‑reported miRNA, was(More)
Tetratricopeptide repeat domain 36 (Ttc36), whose coding protein belongs to tetratricopeptide repeat (TPR) motif family, has not been studied extensively. We for the first time showed that Ttc36 is evolutionarily conserved across mammals by bioinformatics. Rabbit anti-mouse Ttc36 polyclonal antibody was generated by injecting synthetic full-length peptides(More)
Six2 (Sine oculis homeobox 2), a homeodomain transcription factor, plays a crucial role in the regulation of mammalian nephrogenesis. It is also implicated in numerous biological functions, such as cell proliferation, apoptosis, and migration. However, the underlying regulatory mechanisms of Six2 remain largely unknown. In this study, we predicted that CRX,(More)
