Long Noncoding RNAs and Their Therapeutic Promise in Diabetic Nephropathy.

Nephron 2021 Apr 14:1-11. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Section of Nephrology, Division of Internal Medicine, The University of Texas at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas, USA.

Recent advances in large-scale RNA sequencing and genome-wide profiling projects have unraveled a heterogeneous group of RNAs, collectively known as long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), which play central roles in many diverse biological processes. Importantly, an association between aberrant expression of lncRNAs and diverse human pathologies has been reported, including in a variety of kidney diseases. These observations have raised the possibility that lncRNAs may represent unexploited potential therapeutic targets for kidney diseases. Read More

Recurrent Glomerulonephritis in the Kidney Allograft.

Indian J Nephrol 2020 Nov-Dec;30(6):359-369. Epub 2020 Nov 30.

Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA.

Renal transplantation is the preferred form of renal replacement therapy in patients who develop end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). Among the diverse etiologies of ESKD, glomerulonephritis is the third most common cause, behind hypertensive and diabetic kidney disease. Although efforts to prolong graft survival have improved over time with the advent of novel immunosuppression, recurrent glomerulonephritis remains a major threat to renal allograft survival despite concomitant immunosuppression.

Fish oil replacement prevents, while docosahexaenoic acid-derived protectin DX mitigates end-stage-renal-disease in atherosclerotic diabetic mice.

FASEB J 2021 May;35(5):e21559

Quebec Heart and Lung Institute, Laval University, Quebec, QC, Canada.

Diabetic nephropathy (DN) remains the major cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). We used high-fat/high-sucrose (HFHS)-fed LDLr /ApoB mice with transgenic overexpression of IGFII in pancreatic β-cells (LRKOB100/IGFII) as a model of ESRD to test whether dietary long chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids LCω3FA-rich fish oil (FO) could prevent ESRD development. We further evaluated the potential of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)-derived pro-resolving lipid mediators, 17-hydroxy-DHA (17-HDHA) and Protectin DX (PDX), to reverse established ESRD damage. Read More

The Prevalence of Diabetic Microvascular Complications in China and the USA.

Curr Diab Rep 2021 Apr 9;21(6):16. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Renal Division, Department of Medicine, Peking University First Hospital, 8 Xishiku Street, Xicheng District, Beijing, 100034, China.

Purpose Of Review: Diabetes can lead to development of devastating microvascular complications, such as nephropathy, retinopathy, and peripheral sensory and autonomic neuropathy. While China and the USA both face the threat of this major public health challenge, the literature is limited in describing similarities and differences in the prevalence, and risk factors for the development, of diabetic microvascular complications between these two countries.

Recent Findings: The current review discusses the following: (1) the most recent evidence on prevalence of diabetic microvascular complications in China and the USA (including downtrends of diabetes retinopathy and neuropathy in the USA); (2) differences in patient risk factors of these complications; (3) challenges and current knowledge gaps (such as lacking national epidemiological data of diabetic complications in China); and (4) potential future clinical and research opportunities (including needs in diabetes evaluation and management in remote areas and standardization of methods in evaluating diabetic complications across countries).

Common genetic variants and pathways in diabetes and associated complications and vulnerability of populations with different ethnic origins.

Sci Rep 2021 Apr 5;11(1):7504. Epub 2021 Apr 5.

Department of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Dhaka, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Diabetes mellitus is a complex and heterogeneous metabolic disorder which is often pre- or post-existent with complications such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, inflammation, chronic kidney disease, diabetic retino- and nephropathies. However, the frequencies of these co-morbidities vary among individuals and across populations. It is, therefore, not unlikely that certain genetic variants might commonly contribute to these conditions. Read More

MicroRNAs in childhood nephrotic syndrome.

J Cell Physiol 2021 Apr 5. Epub 2021 Apr 5.

Department of Central Research Facility, Sri Ramachandra Institute of Higher Education and Research, Chennai, India.

The discovery of microRNAs (miRNAs) has opened up new avenues of research to understand the molecular basis of a number of diseases. Because of their conservative feature in evolution and important role in the physiological function, microRNAs could be treated as predictors for disease classification and clinical process based on the specific expression. The identification of novel miRNAs and their target genes can be considered as potential targets for novel drugs. Read More

Adipocyte Fatty Acid-Binding Protein, Cardiovascular Diseases and Mortality.

Front Immunol 2021 19;12:589206. Epub 2021 Mar 19.

Department of Medicine, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, Hong Kong.

It has been increasingly recognized that inflammation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease (CVD). In obesity, adipose tissue inflammation, especially in the visceral fat depots, contributes to systemic inflammation and promotes the development of atherosclerosis. Adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein (AFABP), a lipid chaperone abundantly secreted from the adipocytes and macrophages, is one of the key players mediating this adipose-vascular cross-talk, in part its interaction with c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase (JNK) and activator protein-1 (AP-1) to form a positive feedback loop, and perpetuate inflammatory responses.
