Qiu M, Li J, Tan L, Zhang M, Zhou G, Zeng T, Li A (2018) Targeted ablation of distal cerebrospinal fluid-contacting nucleus alleviates renal fibrosis in chronic kidney disease. Front Physiol 9:1640. doi: 10.3389/fphys.2018.01640
Objective: To test the hypothesis that distal cerebrospinal fluid-contacting nucleus (dCSF-CNs) might affect the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in kidney injury progression.
Summary: Less CTB-labeled neurons were found in dCSF-CNs of CTB-SAP-treated rats. Meanwhile, CTB-SAP downregulated AGT, Ang II, AT1R, NOX2, catalase, MCP-1, IL-6, fibronectin, and collagen I, and upregulated ACE2 and Mas receptor. Targeted dCSF-CNs ablation could alleviate renal inflammation and fibrosis in chronic kidney injury.
Usage: CTB-SAP (500 ng) into the lateral ventricles over a 3-min period.
