Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor suppresses glomerular transforming growth factor β receptor expression in experimental diabetes in rats

Abstract

Aims/hypothesis. Activation of the renal transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) axis has been suggested to play a part in the development of diabetic nephropathy by a direct stimulatory effect of hyperglycaemia or through the activation of the renin-angiotensin system. Our aim was to evaluate the involvement of the renin-angiotensin system by examining the… (More)
