Modulation of cell proliferation and hypertrophy by gangliosides in cultured human glomerular mesangial cells.

Abstract

Glomerular mesangial cells (GMCs) in diverse renal diseases undergo cell proliferation and/or hypertrophy, and gangliosides have been reported to play an important role in modulating cell structure and function. This study compared the effects of transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) and the effects of the application of exogenous gangliosides on… (More)
