Advanced glycation end products suppress neuropilin-1 expression in podocytes by a reduction in Sp1-dependent transcriptional activity.


BACKGROUND Neuropilin-1 (NRP1) is a transmembrane glycoprotein, initially defined as a receptor for members of the semaphorin family. We observed that NRP1 expression was downregulated by the addition of advanced glycation end products-modified bovine serum albumin (AGE-BSA). The present study was undertaken to unravel the molecular mechanisms underlying… (More)
