Research

The role of intrarenal RAS and ROS in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy, with special emphasis on renal angiotensinogen gene expression and intrarenal ROS generation on tubular apoptosis in diabetes. Transgenic mice specifically overexpressing angiotensinogen and catalase in the kidney will be used to study the molecular mechanism(s) of intrarenal RAS and ROS action on the induction of tubular fibrosis and apoptosis in diabetes. Gene chip microarrays will be used to identify the unique genes that are differentially expressed in diabetic kidneys. The physiological role(s) of these unique genes will be studied in vitro and in vivo.
