ABSTRACT
Purpose: Insulin-like growth factor(IGF)-I and -II are peptide growth factor whose activity is modulated by interaction with the family of six IGF-binding proteins(IGFBPs). IGF-I is detected in rat kidney and has metabolic and growth effects. This study was designed to examine temporal expression of IGFBPs in kidney during renal development and postischemic regeneration in rat.
Method : The expression of IGFBPs in kidney during renal development from 15th day of gestation to adult life by using Northern blot analysis. We also examined the renal IGF-IGFBP axis in uremic rat by using Northern blot and immunohistochemistry.
Results : The mRNA of IGFBP-1 and -3 were not or barely detected in fetal stages. However, the mRNA level of IGFBP-1 and -3 were increased gradually from day 7 after birth to adult. In contrast, the mRNA of IGFBP-2 and -5 were highly expressed in fetal stages and maintained almost same levels until day 7 (IGFBP-2) or day 30 (IGFBP-5) after birth, then their levels decreased markedly. The mRNA of IGFBP-4 were expressed moderately in fetal kidney and increased gradually after birth. Interestingly, the mRNA of IGFBP-1 and-4 were induced up to 3-5 fold during maximum regeneration period and were recovered to normal levels after acute ischemic injury. In contrast, the mRNA level of IGFBP-3 and-IGFBPrP-1 were decreased slightly at 1 day after ischemic injury, then recovered to normal level during maximum regeneration period.
Conclusion : There were differential expressions of IGFBPs in kidney that can modulate IGF action on developing, differentiating, maintaining, and regenerating renal structure and function.
