Leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) is known to play a crucial role in the conversion of mesenchyme into epithelium during nephrogenesis. This study was carried out to test the hypothesis that LIF and LIF receptor (LIFR) are involved in the renal epithelial regeneration after acute renal failure. First, the authors investigated the spatiotemporal expression of LIF and LIFR in fetal and adult rat kidney. In developing kidney, LIF was expressed in the ureteric buds and LIFR was located in… CONTINUE READING
