Expression of the intrarenal angiotensin receptor and the role of renin-angiotensin system inhibitors in IgA nephropathy.

Zhang Z, Jiang SM, Ma YP, Dai PL, Wang YN, Zou GM, Gao HM, Yang Y, Li WG (2019) Expression of the intrarenal angiotensin receptor and the role of renin-angiotensin system inhibitors in IgA nephropathy. Mol Cell Biochem 453:103-110. doi: 10.1007/s11010-018-3435-4

Objective: To investigate the role of intrarenal renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in the development of human kidney disease. Patients with IgA nephropathy (IgAN) were screened and their clinical characteristics analyzed.

Summary: Overexpression of AT1R on the mesangial cells of IgAN patients is associated with mesangial cell proliferation, glomerular segmental sclerosis, and crescent formation.

Usage: immunohistochemistry (1:500)
