Two mouse tales by Oliver Smithies( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

(CIT): Dr. Oliver Smithies, a 2007 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, will look at the progression of ideas that occurred during the 20 years he has spent altering genes in mice, beginning with progress related to the control of blood pressure. He shall emphasize the importance of experimentally controlling the level of expression of genes of interest and the usefulness of developing computer simulations to help understand the results of experiments

Transforming growth factor beta1 and aldosterone( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Purpose of review: It is well established that blocking the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) is effective for the treatment of cardiovascular and renal complications in hypertension and diabetes mellitus. Although the induction of transforming growth factor beta1 (TGFbeta1) by components of the RAAS mediates the hypertrophic and fibrogenic changes in cardiovascular-renal complications, it is still controversial as to whether TGFbeta1 can be a target to prevent such complications. Here, we review recent findings on the role of TGFbeta1 in fluid homeostasis, focusing on the relationship with aldosterone. Recent findings: TGFbeta1 suppresses the adrenal production of aldosterone and renal tubular sodium reabsorption. We have generated mice with TGFbeta1 mRNA expression graded in five steps, from 10 to 300% of normal, and found that blood pressure and plasma volume are negatively regulated by TGFbeta1. Notably, the 10% hypomorph exhibits primary aldosteronism and sodium and water retention due to markedly impaired urinary excretion of water and electrolytes. Summary: These results identify TGFbeta signalling as an important counterregulatory system against aldosterone. Understanding the molecular mechanisms for the suppressive effects of TGFbeta1 on adrenocortical and renal function may further our understanding of primary aldosteronism, as well as assist in the development of novel therapeutic strategies for hypertension
