Metabolic rates of 4-hydroxynonenal in tubular and mesangial cells of the kidney.


The degradation of the lipid peroxidation product 4-hydroxynonenal (HNE) in primary cultures of kidney tubular and mesangial cells was determined. Using various initial concentrations of the aldehyde a decline of cellular viability was found. Mesangial cells were more susceptible to the toxic effects of HNE. In consumption studies of HNE the decline of the… (More)
