      E Prostanoid (EP) receptors play an important role in urinary Na+ excretion. In the kidney, the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) is the rate-limiting-step for Na+ reabsorption. We hypothesized that activation of EP1/EP3 ...
    • Rojas, Macarena; Díaz Moreno, Pablo; León, Pablo; González, Alexis A.; González, Magdalena; Barrientos, Víctor; Pestov, Nikolay B.; Alzamora Miranda, Rodrigo; Michea Acevedo, Luis (Taylor & Francis, 2017)
      Renal sodium reabsorption depends on the activity of the Na+,K+-ATPase / heterodimer. Four ((1-4)) and 3 ((1-3)) subunit isoforms have been described. It is accepted that renal tubule cells express (1)/(1) dimers. Aldosterone ...

      Increasing evidence shows that antigen-presenting cells (APCs) are involved in the development of inflammation associated to hypertension. However, the potential role of APCs in the modulation of renal sodium transport has ...
