Extracellular signal-regulated kinase mediates renal regeneration in rats with myoglobinuric acute renal injury.

In vitro data support that extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) and c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK), members of mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinases, mediate the signal transduction pathways responsible for the cell proliferation. However, in vivo role of these MAP kinases is poorly understood. Intramuscular injection of 50% glycerol solution… (More)
