Proximal tubular angiotensinogen in renal biopsy suggests nondipper BP rhythm accompanied by enhanced tubular sodium reabsorption

Journal of Hypertension

The renal capacity for sodium excretion is impaired by a reduction in the glomerular ultrafiltration coefficient and by enhancement of the fractional tubular sodium reabsorption (FRNa), leading to a nondipper circadian blood pressure (BP) rhythm. Angiotensin II in the systemic circulation can be easily filtered across the glomerular capillary walls and stimulates renal proximal tubular angiotensinogen (PT-AGT) production, leading to the activation of intrarenal angiotensin II, which is known to augment the FRNa in animal models. We performed an immunohistochemical investigation to determine the contribution of PT-AGT to enhancement of FRNa and the nondipper circadian BP rhythm in 40 consecutive patients with primary IgA nephropathy (IgAN). Immunostaining for PT-AGT was increased in the IgAN patients compared with control individuals (P = 0.04), and correlated directly with the FRNa (r = 0.39, P = 0.01) and the night/day ratio of BP (r = 0.38, P = 0.02), but not creatinine clearance (r = -0.008, P = 0.9). The night/day ratio of BP was determined by both creatinine clearance (r = -0.36, P = 0.03) and FRNa (r = 0.47, P = 0.006). Tubular sodium reabsorption is stimulated by intrarenal angiotensin II, as indicated by PT-AGT, and con...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
