The role of the renin-angiotensin system in cholesterol and puromycin mediated renal injury.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Puromycin aminonucleoside (PAN) nephropathy is a widely studied model of glomerular sclerosis (GS) in the rat, and cholesterol feeding exacerbates the injury induced by PAN. The importance of the interaction of angiotensin II (Ang II) with the AT2 receptor is unclear. We investigated the role of the renin-angiotensin system, particularly with… (More)
