The ability of cisplatin (cis-diamminedichloroplatinum II) toxicity to induce acute kidney injury (AKI) has attracted people's attention and concern for a long time, but its molecular mechanisms are still widely unknown. We found that the expression of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β)-activated kinase 1 (TAK1) could be increased in kidneys of mice administrated with cisplatin. Autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved catabolic pathway and is involved in various acute and chronic injuries. Moreover, p38 MAPK (mitogen-activated protein kinase) and ERK regulate autophagy in response to various stimuli...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is considered an inflammatory disease in which Toll-like receptors (TLRs) signaling pathways play an important role. The activation of TLRs results in production of several inflammatory cytokines leading to further renal damage. In contrast, TLRs are key players on autophagy induction, which is associated with a protective function on cisplatin-induced AKI. Hence, this study aimed evaluate the specific participation of TLR2 and TLR4 molecules on development of cisplatin-induced AKI...

Background: The role of Klotho (KL) in sepsis-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) and the potential relationship between KL and autophagy in septic AKI were investigated. Materials and methods: A murine model of sepsis-induced AKI was established by cecal ligation and puncture (CLP). Mice undergoing CLP and immortalized proximal tubular epithelial human HK-2 cells that were exposed to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) were treated with recombinant KL, autophagy stimulator rapamycin (Rap), and autophagy suppressor 3-methyladenine (3-MA)...

Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACi) have therapeutic effects in models of various renal diseases including acute kidney injury (AKI); however, the underlying mechanism remains unclear. Here we demonstrate that two widely tested HDACi (suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA) and trichostatin A (TSA)) protect the kidneys in cisplatin-induced AKI by enhancing autophagy. In cultured renal proximal tubular cells, SAHA and TSA enhanced autophagy during cisplatin treatment. We further verified the protective effect of TSA against cisplatin-induced apoptosis in these cells...

The clinical application of cisplatin is restricted by its side effects of nephrotoxicity. Human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cell-derived exosomes (hucMSC-ex) have an important effect in tissue injury repair. Our previous work discovered that pretreatment with human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cell-derived exosomes (hucMSC-ex) alleviated cisplatin-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) by activating autophagy both in vitro and in vivo. In this study, we further explored the mechanisms of hucMSC-ex in autophagy for preventing cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity...

Lewisite (2-chlorovinyldichloroarsine) is an organic and arsenical chemical warfare agent which was developed and weaponized during World Wars I/II. Stockpiles of lewisite still exist in many parts of the world and pose potential environmental and human health threat. Exposure to lewisite and similar chemicals causes intense cutaneous inflammatory response. However, morbidity and mortality in the exposed population is not only due to cutaneous damage but is also a result of systemic injury. Here, we provide data delineating the pathogenesis of acute kidney injury (AKI) following cutaneous exposure to lewisite and its analogue phenylarsine oxide (PAO) in a murine model...

Histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6) has been shown to be involved in various pathological conditions, including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders and inflammatory diseases. Nonetheless, its specific role in drug-induced nephrotoxicity is poorly understood. Cisplatin (dichlorodiamino platinum) belongs to an inorganic platinum - fundamental chemotherapeutic drug utilized in the therapy of various solid malignant tumors. However, the use of cisplatin is extremely limited by obvious side effects, for instance bone marrow suppression and nephrotoxicity...

The role of autophagy in the maintenance of renal homeostasis during sepsis is not well understood. We therefore aimed to determine the influence of autophagy on kidney during sepsis using a murine sepsis model, i.e. cecal ligation and puncture (CLP). In CLP treated animals, the number of autolysosomes observed by electron microscopy increased over time. The number of autophagosomes in CLP animals decreased relative sham operated controls at 24 hrs after CLP, indicating that autophagy flux is already diminishing by that time...

Erythropoietin receptor (EpoR) is widely expressed but its renoprotective action is unexplored. To examine the role of EpoR in vivo in the kidney, we induced acute kidney injury (AKI) by ischemia-reperfusion in mice with different EpoR bioactivities in the kidney. EpoR bioactivity was reduced by knock-in of wild type human EpoR, which is hypo-functional relative to murine EpoR, and a renal tubule-specific EpoR knockout. These mice had lower EPO/EpoR activity and lower autophagy flux in renal tubules. Upon AKI induction, they exhibited worse renal function and structural damage, and more apoptosis at the acute stage (< 7 days), and slower recovery with more tubulointerstitial fibrosis at the subacute stage (14 days)...

Damaged or dysfunctional mitochondria are toxic to the cell by producing reactive oxygen species and releasing cell death factors. Therefore, timely removal of these organelles is critical to cellular homeostasis and viability. Mitophagy is the mechanism of selective degradation of mitochondria via autophagy. The significance of mitophagy in kidney diseases, including ischemic acute kidney injury (AKI), has yet to be established, and the involved pathway of mitophagy remains poorly understood. Here, we show that mitophagy is induced in renal proximal tubular cells in both in vitro and in vivo models of ischemic AKI...

Gram-negative sepsis is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in critical ill patients. Recent findings in molecular biology and in signaling pathways have enhanced our understanding of its pathogenesis and opened up opportunities of innovative therapeutic approaches. Endotoxin plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of multi-organ dysfunction in the setting of gram-negative sepsis. Indeed, heart and kidney impairments seem to be induced by the release of circulating pro-inflammatory and pro-apoptotic mediators triggered by endotoxin interaction with immune cells...

Regulated autophagy is involved in the repair of renal ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI). Fat-1 transgenic mice produce ω3-Polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω3-PUFAs) from ω6-Polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω6-PUFAs) without a dietary ω3-PUFAs supplement, leading to a high accumulation of omega-3 in various tissues. ω3-PUFAs show protective effects against various renal injuries and it has recently been reported that ω3-PUFAs regulate autophagy. We assessed whether ω3-PUFAs attenuated IR-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) and evaluated its associated mechanisms...

Progress has been made in our understanding of the mechanisms of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) proteostasis, ER stress and the unfolded protein response (UPR), as well as ER stress-induced autophagy, in the kidney. Experimental models have revealed that disruption of the UPR, including a protein that senses misfolded proteins (namely, inositol-requiring enzyme 1α) in mouse podocytes causes podocyte injury and albuminuria as mice age. Protein misfolding and ER stress are evident in various renal diseases, including primary glomerulonephritides, glomerulopathies associated with genetic mutations, diabetic nephropathy, acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease and renal fibrosis...

BACKGROUND AIMS: On the basis of previous studies, exosomes secreted by human umbilical cord mesenchymal stromal cell (hucMSC-ex) could prevent and repair acute kidney injury induced by cisplatin in rats. However, its potential mechanism is still unclear. In the present study, the model with hucMSC-ex pretreated human renal tubular epithelial cell lines HK-2 that could prevent the injury of cisplatin was successfully established. METHODS: First, we pretreated the HK-2 cells with hucMSC-ex for 24 h...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) are interconnected. Although AKI-to-CKD transition has been intensively studied, the information of AKI on CKD is very limited. Nonetheless, AKI, when occurring in patients with CKD, is known to be more severe and difficult to recover. CKD is associated with significant changes in cell signaling in kidney tissues, including the activation of transforming growth factor-β, p53, hypoxia-inducible factor, and major developmental pathways. At the cellular level, CKD is characterized by mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, and aberrant autophagy...

C-reactive protein (CRP), was recently reported to be closely associated with poor renal function in patients with acute kidney injury (AKI), but whether CRP is pathogenic or a mere biomarker in AKI remains largely unclear. Impaired autophagy is known to exacerbate renal ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI). We examined whether the pathogenic role of CRP in AKI is associated with reduction of autophagy. We mated transgenic rabbit CRP over-expressing mice (Tg-CRP) with two autophagy reporter mouse lines, Tg-GFP-LC3 mice (LC3) and Tg-RFP-GFP-LC3 mice (RG-LC3) respectively to generate Tg-CRP-GFP-LC3 mice (PLC3) and Tg-CRP-RFP-GFP-LC3 mice (PRG-LC3)...

The deletion of microsomal prostaglandin E synthase-2 (mPGES-2) does not affect in vivo PGE2 production, and the function of this enzyme remains unknown until now. This study investigated the expression and roles of mPGES-2 in LPS induced acute kidney injury (AKI) both in vitro and in vivo. We found that mPGES-2 was up-regulated in kidney of mice with LPS induced AKI. Inhibition of mouse mpges2 gene expression exacerbated LPS-induced renal dysfunction, renal tubular cell damage and apoptosis, while inhibited kidney autophagy...

The effective treatment for acute kidney injury (AKI) is currently limited, and care is primarily supportive. Sialic acid (SA) is main component of Sialyl Lewis(x) antigen on the mammalian cell surface, which participates in E-selectin binding. Therefore, dexamethasone(DXM)-loaded E-selectin-targeting sialic acid-polyethylene glycol-dexamethasone (SA-PEG-DXM/DXM) conjugate micelles are designed for ameliorating AKI. The conjugates are synthesized via the esterification reaction between PEG and SA or DXM, and can spontaneously form micelles in an aqueous solution with a 65...

Epidemiologic, clinical, and molecular evidence suggest that aging is a major contributor to the increasing incidence of acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease. The aging kidney undergoes complex changes that predispose to renal pathology. The underlying molecular mechanisms could be the target of therapeutic strategies in the future. Here, we summarize recent insight into cellular and molecular processes that have been shown to contribute to the renal aging phenotype.The main clinical finding of renal aging is the decrease in glomerular filtration rate, and its structural correlate is the loss of functioning nephrons...
