This study evaluated in 16 pediatric renal transplant patients, divided in two groups based on the presence of post-transplant hypertension, the oxidative stress status measuring the gene expression (reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction) of two major oxidative stress-related proteins, p22(phox) and heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1).
On balance, however, the strategies to target heme oxygenase-1 as described in this review offer promising therapeutic approaches to clinicians for the effective management of hypertension and renal function.
Study on the association between environmental cadmium exposure, cytochrome P450-mediated 20-HETE, heme-oxygenase-1 polymorphism and hypertension in Thai population residing in a malaria endemic areas with cadmium pollution.
We recently demonstrated that heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) protects against hypertension in a rat model of placental ischemia; however, whether HO-1 regulation of β-ENaC contributes to the beneficial effects of HO-1 is unknown.
HMOX1rs743811 associated with chronic kidney disease stage (OR=3.0, P=0.0001) in the University of Illinois cohort and end-stage renal disease (OR=10.0, P=0.0003) in the Walk-Treatment of Pulmonary Hypertension and Sickle cell Disease with Sildenafil Therapy cohort.
Regarding to the (GT)n repeats, the LL genotype showed a higher odds ratio for the development of albuminuria only in patients with hypertension when compared to the S allele.In conclusion, the T(-413)A SNP in the HO-1 promoter is significantly associated with albuminuria development in type 2 diabetes patients, especially with longer duration and poor glycemic control.
The aim of the present study was to explore the mechanisms of depression and hypertension by examining the expression and interaction of renin/prorenin receptor (PRR) and heme oxygenase 1 (HO-1) in vascular endothelial cells.
