Pioglitazone Inhibits the Expressions of p22phox and p47phox in Rat Mesangial Cells In Vitro

Abstract

Aim. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of pioglitazone on oxidative stress and the expressions of p22(phox) and p47(phox), subunits of NADPH oxidase, in mesangial cells (MCs). Method. Rat mesangial cells were cultured and randomly divided into normal glucose (NG) group, high glucose (HG) group, and pioglitazone group. After 48 h… (More)
