beta6 integrin is up-regulated in chronic renal allograft dysfunction.

Abstract

Up-regulation of beta6 integrin, which is indispensable to the activation of transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1), was investigated in chronic renal allograft dysfunction (CAD). A total of 103 renal biopsy samples (normal, 10; acute rejection, 30; CAD, 63) were immunohistochemically evaluated for expression of TGF-beta1 and beta6 integrin. No TGF… (More)
