  • BACKGROUND The slower rate of progression of chronic renal disease in women than in men is explained in part by the ability of estradiol to reverse the stimulatory effect of transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) on collagen IV synthesis at the level of casein kinase 2 activation. Casein kinase 2 also phosphorylates and activates the pro-apoptotic protein, p53. We hypothesized that estradiol would reverse TGF-beta1-induced mesangial cell apoptosis by antagonizing the stimulatory effects… CONTINUE READING
