Podocyte Wnt/β-catenin pathway is activated by integrin-linked kinase in clinical and experimental focal segmental glomerulosclerosis
Journal of Nephrology, 05/16/2012
Naves MA et al. – The findings suggest that activation of Integrin–linked kinase (ILK) activated the Wnt signaling pathway in damaged podocytes. This phenomenon could have an important role in development and/or progression of clinical and experimental focal segmental glomerulosclerosis.
