Effects of suppressing intrarenal angiotensinogen on renal transforming growth factor-beta1 expression in acute ureteral obstruction.


BACKGROUND Angiotensin II (Ang II) mediates the up-regulation of fibrogenic factors such as transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) in chronic renal diseases. In addition, it has been proposed that the intrarenal renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is as important as the systemic RAS in kidney disease progression. METHODS We suppressed angiotensinogen… (More)
