Na+/K+-ATPase stabilization by Hsp70 in the outer stripe of the outer medulla in rats during recovery from a low-protein diet

A low-protein (LP) diet induces injury from energy depletion in renal epithelial cells. Overexpression of heat-shock proteins has been implicated in the restoration of the cytoskeletal anchorage of Na+/K+-ATPase. We tested if Hsp70 stabilizes renal Na+/K+-ATPase attachment to the cytoskeleton from the cortex and the outer stripe of the outer medulla (OSOM… CONTINUE READING
