Uncoupling protein-2 (UCP2), a mitochondrial anion transporter involved in mitochondrial uncoupling, limiting reactive oxygen species formation, is significantly downregulated in kidneys of high-salt-fed stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHRSP), where it associates with increased renal damage occurrence.

It is well established that renin-angiotensin system (RAS) play a central role in pathophysiology of renal damage following unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO). The present study investigated the ef...
Developing confirmation recommends that in patients with dynamic type of NAFLD, particularly nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) may have the pathogenic parts in the advancement of kidney damage. In t...
The discovery of circulating microRNAs (miRNAs), as potential noninvasive diagnostic biomarkers, has opened new avenues of research for identifying patients with chronic failure in renal transplantati...
Renal damage is a consequence of severe malaria, and is generally caused by sequestration of Plasmodium falciparum -infected erythrocytes in the renal microcirculation, which leads to obstruction, hyp...
Correction: Adipocyte arrestin domain-containing 3 protein (Arrdc3) regulates uncoupling protein 1 (Ucp1) expression in white adipose independently of canonical changes in β-adrenergic receptor signaling.
[This corrects the article DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0173823.].
Aim of the present study is to investigate the influence of hyperoxia on the protein expression using the differential analysis of protein expression in tissues (proteomics). In the study,...
RATIONALE: Studying protein expression in sentinel lymph node tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify and learn more about biomarkers related to cancer...
Hypothesis to be tested: Dopamine D1-like receptor-induced natriuresis is impaired in humans with G protein-related kinase 4 gene variants. Our research group has discovered a D1 receptor...

Obesity and metabolic disease result when energy intake consistently exceeds energy expenditure. One appealing new target for treatment is the activation of brown adipose tissue (BAT), an ...
A mitochondrial uncoupling protein that is expressed in many tissues and exhibits the greatest expression in SKELETAL MUSCLE. It regulates mitochondrial ATP production and the generation of REACTIVE OXYGEN SPECIES.
A mitochondrial uncoupling protein that is expressed in BROWN ADIPOSE TISSUE. It is critical for NONSHIVERING THERMOGENESIS to prevent heat loss in NEONATES.
A mitochondrial uncoupling protein that is expressed in heart and skeletal muscle tissues. It functions to regulate tissue respiration, energy balance, and THERMOGENESIS. Mutations in the UCP3 gene are associated with OBESITY.
A nuclear and cytoplasmic protein that associates with KINETOCHORES and contains a C-terminal TUDOR DOMAIN. It plays a critical role in the cellular response to DNA DAMAGE and localizes to DOUBLE-STRAND DNA BREAKS. It may also function in M PHASE CELL CYCLE CHECKPOINTS and as an enhancer of TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN P53-mediated transcriptional activation.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
