Cisplatin, a widely used chemotherapy drug, induces acute kidney injury, which limits its use and efficacy in cancer treatment. However, the molecular mechanism of cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity is currently unclear. Using pharmacological and gene knockout models, we now demonstrate a pathological role for p53 in cisplatin nephrotoxicity. In C57BL/6 mice, cisplatin treatment induced p53 phosphorylation and protein accumulation, which was accompanied by the development of acute kidney injury… CONTINUE READING
