The basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) class of proteins are of major importance in controlling tissue-specific gene expression. The actions of the bHLH proteins are inhibited by a related class of proteins, inhibitors of differentiation (Id). We have studied the expression of one of these latter proteins, Id-1, in the normal and post-ischemic regenerating rat kidney by immunocytochemistry, Western blot and RNase protection assay (RPA) and correlated Id-1 regulation to the expression of vimentin and… CONTINUE READING
