Different roles of two types of endothelin receptors in partial ablation-induced chronic renal failure in rats.


Recent work has drawn attention to endothelin as a likely contributor to renal pathogenesis. To elucidate the mechanism of progressive renal disease, we investigated the mRNA expression of endothelin and endothelin receptors, and the effect of endothelin ET(A), and/or ET(B) receptor antagonists on disease progression in the remnant kidney model. Proteinuria… (More)
