... to evaluate the effects of hydrocortisone and recombinant human lipocortin-1 on cultured human mesangial cells (CHMC), and the effects of anti-lipocortin-1 antibody on the hydrocortisone-induced inhibition of CHMC proliferation. The existence of specific binding sites for lipocortin-1 was also investigated...

... Macrophages seem to play an important role in the development of glomerulosclerosis. In the present study we evaluated the effect of morphine, an active metabolite of heroin, on the migration of monocytes across a filter in a modified Boyden chamber. Morphine-mesangial cell interaction enhanced (p...

... cells infiltrating the interstitium. In areas of tubular atrophy there was increased staining for Cx43. Using reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction we have also demonstrated that cultured human and rat mesangial cells and human proximal tubular cells express Cx43 messenger RNA. In summary, we...

... on the extracellular matrix production by cultured rat mesangial cells (CRMC). Subconfluent CRMC monolayers were grown with 10% oxygen (hypoxia) and 20% oxygen (control) for 1, 3, and 5 days. The production of type IV collagen (CIV), fibronectin (FN), and laminin (LN) by CRMC was evaluated by flow cytometry...

...Gerald C. Groggel; M. Laurette Hughes Heparan sulfate, a glycosaminoglycan which is a component of the glomerular basement membrane and the mesangial matrix, has been demonstrated to inhibit mesangial cell growth. The present studies investigated the effects of heparan sulfate on extracellular...

In all species, three cell populations have been identified with the features of epithelial cells, mesangial cells and macrophages, although the latter population is only rarely observed. The morphology...
