Integrated actions of transforming growth factor-beta(1) and connective tissue growth factor in renal fibrosis

, : Integrated actions of transforming growth factor-beta(1) and connective tissue growth factor in renal fibrosis. American Journal of Physiology Renal Physiology 288(4): F800-F809

Matrix accumulation in the renal tubulointerstitium is predictive of a progressive decline in renal function. Transforming growth factor-beta(1) (TGF-beta(1)) and, more recently, connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) are recognized to play key roles in mediating the fibrogenic response, independently of the primary renal insult. Further definition of the independent and interrelated effects of CTGF and TGF-beta(1) is critical for the development of effective antifibrotic strategies.

A transient stimulation of the initiation of DNA replication during inhibition of protein synthesis was demonstrated in dnaA5 and dnaA46 mutants. This suggests the existence of a negatively acting control protein (not the dnaA product) which decay...
