High glucose levels can induce mesangial cell proliferation and extracellular matrix (ECM) accumulation through the type I activin receptor-like kinase 5 (ALK5) signaling pathway. Salt-inducible kinase 1 (SIK1) prevents fibrosis by downregulating ALK5, while the expression level of the SIK1 protein itself is downregulated by glucose in neuronal cells(More)
