TRPC6 up-regulation in Ang II-induced podocyte apoptosis might result from ERK activation and NF-kappaB translocation.

Abstract

Angiotensin II (Ang II) has been recognized as an apoptosis inducer in podocytes, but the mechanism of apoptosis induced by Ang II is unclear. Transient receptor potential cation channel 6 (TRPC6) is a calcium channel located in podocyte membrane. The present study evaluated the alteration of TRPC6 expression and the Ca(2+) influx involved in Ang II-induced… (More)
