PGD2-CRTH2 pathway promotes tubulointerstitial fibrosis.


Urinary excretion of lipocalin-type PGD(2) synthase (L-PGDS), which converts PG H(2) to PGD(2), increases in early diabetic nephropathy. In addition, L-PGDS expression in the tubular epithelium increases in adriamycin-induced nephropathy, suggesting that locally produced L-PGDS may promote the development of CKD. In this study, we found that L-PGDS-derived… (More)
