Functional Implications of MicroRNA-215 in TGF-β1-Induced Phenotypic Transition of Mesangial Cells by Targeting CTNNBIP1


Mesangial cell (MC) phenotypic transition is crucial for the progression of diabetic nephropathy. A major stimulus mediating high glucose-induced MC phenotypic transition is TGF-β1. Our current study focuses on microRNA-215 (miR-215) and investigates its role in TGF-β1-mediated MC phenotypic transition. Using real-time quantitative PCR (qRT-PCR) and… (More)
