Podocytes possess receptors for a variety of hormones. The following receptors whose stimulation results in increased cAMP levels have been detected in podocytes: adrenergic beta(2) receptor, dopamine D(1) receptor, prostaglandin IP and EP(4) receptors, and parathyroid hormone (PTH)/PTH-related protein (PTHrP) receptor. Besides activating protein kinase A, increased levels of cAMP depolarize podocytes via opening of chloride channels. Relatively little is known about the impact of the cAMP… CONTINUE READING
