Observation of angiotensin II-induced changes in fixed and live mesangial cells by atomic force microscopy.

Abstract

Glomerular mesangial cells (MCs) are centrally located in the glomerulus. MCs control not only glomerular filtration, but also the response to local injury, including cell proliferation and basement membrane remodeling. Angiotensin II (Ang II) plays an important role in kidney function regulation, and participates in the progression of renal damage, as well… (More)
