Nephrotoxicity and Kidney Transport Assessment on 3D Perfused Proximal Tubules
Proximal tubules in the kidney play a crucial role in reabsorbing and eliminating substrates from the body into the urine, leading to high local concentrations of xenobiotics. This makes the proximal tubule a major target ...
High-Throughput Screening of Drug-Transporter Interactions in a 3D Microfluidic Renal Proximal Tubule on a Chip
Drug-transporter interactions could impact renal drug clearance and should ideally be detected in early stages of drug development to avoid toxicity-related withdrawals in later stages. This requires reliable and robust ...
Nrf2 protects stellate cells from Smad-dependent cell activation.
Hepatic stellate cells (HSC) orchestrate the deposition of extracellular matrix (ECM) and are the primary effector of liver fibrosis. Several factors, including TGF-β1, PDGF and oxidative stress, have been shown to trigger ...
