39] Notably, the Hippo signaling pathway was also demonstrated to play a role in the development and progression of endometriosis, which modulates endometrial stromal cell activity through transcriptional regulation of CTGF.
Indeed, when they tried deleting CTGF genetically, those fish failed to regenerate.
Methods: H ar epithelial cells (HK-2) were stably trans duced with either control or CTGF expression lentiviral particles to mimic CTGF induction in renal injury.
31) Por otro lado la expresion de EGFR es mayor en condiciones como nefropatia cronica de injerto y glomerulonefritis con medias lunas, lo que sugiere que ligandos distintos a EGF como CTGF pueden activar la senalizacion por este receptor, (27) constituye por lo tanto un objetivo terapeutico en los casos de enfermedad renal cronica pero no en los de fracaso agudo donde el bloqueo de este eje tendria efectos deletereos.
