METTL14-regulated PI3K/Akt signaling pathway via PTEN affects HDAC5-mediated epithelial–mesenchymal transition of renal tubular cells in diabetic kidney disease

METTL14-regulated PI3K/Akt signaling pathway via PTEN affects HDAC5-mediated epithelial–mesenchymal transition of renal tubular cells in diabetic kidney disease

HDAC5 expression was increased in renal tubular cells of diabetic mice and high glucose-treated HK2 cellsWe first detected the expression of HDAC5 in the kidneys of diabetic mice by the methods of western blot and immunohistochemistry. As seen in Fig.

“Treasure Your Exceptions”—Studying Human Extreme Phenotypes to Illuminate Metabolic Health and Disease: The 2019 Banting Medal for Scientific Achievement Lecture

Erratum. Abrogation of MMP-9 Gene Protects Against the Development of Retinopathy in Diabetic Mice by Preventing Mitochondrial Damage. Diabetes 2011;60:3023–3033

AbstractThe study of humans with genetic mutations which lead to a substantial disturbance of physiological processes has made a contribution to biomedical science that is disproportionate to the rarity of affected individuals. In this lecture, I discuss examples of where

‘Losing our grip’: In some neighborhoods, the devastation of the pandemic goes far beyond the disease itself.

Plenty of numbers can quantify the way the pandemic and the resulting recession have battered the United States: At least 7.8 million people have fallen into poverty, the biggest plunge in six decades; 85 million Americans say they have had

Does sotagliflozin reduce the risk of serious heart disease in patients with type 2 diabetes and kidney disease?

Does testosterone treatment improve diabetes control in men with type 2 diabetes and low testosterone?

Posted by Medivizor on Jan 4, 2021 in Diabetes mellitus | In a nutshell This study looked at the use of sotagliflozin (Zynquista) in patients with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes (T2D) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). It found that patients taking sotagliflozin was
