  • SENP3 Aggravates Renal Tubular Epithelial Cell Apoptosis in
           Lipopolysaccharide-Induced Acute Kidney Injury via deSUMOylation of Drp1

    • Abstract: Background: Sepsis causes acute kidney injury (AKI) in critically ill patients, although the mechanisms underlying the pathophysiology are not fully understood. SUMO-specific proteases 3 (SENP3), a member of the deSUMOylating enzyme family, is known as a redox sensor and could regulate multiple cellular signaling pathways. However, the role of SENP3 in septic AKI remains unclear. Objectives: The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of SENP3 in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced AKI model. Methods: C57BL/6 mice were given intraperitoneal injection of LPS (10 mg/kg). NRK-52E cells were treated with LPS in vitro. The SENP3 protein expression was analyzed by Western blotting. The levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in cells were measured using DCFH-DA. SENP3-siRNA or SENP3-plasmid was, respectively, transfected into NRK-52E cells to knock down or overexpress the SENP3 expression. Western blotting was performed to analyze the protein expression of cleaved caspase 3, cytochrome c, and dynamin-related protein 1 (Drp1). The mitochondrial membrane potential was measured using JC-1 assay kit. Co-immunoprecipitation was used to determine the interaction of Drp1 and SMUO2/3. Results: SENP3 protein expression was obviously increased in renal tissues from the mouse model of LPS-induced AKI. Accordingly, SENP3 expression was upregulated in NRK-52E cells treated with LPS in a ROS-dependent manner in vitro. Knockdown of SENP3 dramatically ameliorated LPS-induced apoptosis of NRK-52E cells, whereas overexpression of SENP3 further aggravated LPS-induced apoptosis of NRK-52E cells. Mechanistically, SENP3 triggered Drp1 recruitment to mitochondria by increasing the deSUMOylation of Drp1. Conclusion: SENP3 aggravated renal tubular epithelial cell apoptosis in LPS-induced AKI via Drp1 deSUMOylation manner.

  • Should More Patients with Kidney Failure Bring Treatment Home' What We
           Have Learned from COVID-19

    • Abstract: Background: The COVID-19 pandemic is challenging healthcare systems worldwide and has placed hospitals and healthcare providers (HCPs) at the center of a global crisis. Disruptions to hospital priorities, and limitations placed on the mobility of societies, have contributed to changes in the way HCPs and patients view and access dialysis for kidney failure, including which dialysis modality is preferred. Summary: This article explores the dialysis experience within the COVID-19 pandemic environment in the Asia Pacific region and presents evidence that peritoneal dialysis (PD) provides benefits to patients, HCPs, and health systems. As the number of people infected with COVID-19 has increased, the advantages of PD as a dialysis modality for limiting the spread of COVID-19 infection has been recognized. Key Message: The utility of PD has been demonstrated during the COVID-19 pandemic; thus, ensuring that the usage of PD is maintained and increased in a post-pandemic future is key. Such a scenario could enhance our ability to care for patients without interruption in circumstances of unforeseen obstacles and supports the ability of healthcare systems and patients to overcome barriers to dialysis access.

  • Methods for Assessment of the Glomerular Filtration Rate in Laboratory

    • Abstract: Background: The glomerular filtration rate (GFR), as the benchmark of renal function, has been widely used in clinical practice and basic medical research. Currently, most researchers still rely on endogenous markers, such as plasma creatinine, blood urea nitrogen, and cystatin C, to evaluate renal function in laboratory animals. While inexpensive and simple to use, methods based on endogenous markers are often inaccurate and susceptible to several internal physiological factors. Thus, it is necessary to establish a method to precisely assess the GFR, especially when detecting early changes in GFR during acute kidney injury, and hyperfiltration usually caused by pregnancy or diabetic nephropathy. In addition, laboratory animals have higher tolerance for invasive procedures than humans, allowing novel technologies to be applied on them for GFR monitoring. In recent years, significant progress has been made in developing new methods to assess GFR in animals. However, no publication has reviewed these techniques. Summary: This article summarized the majority of methods used to assess the GFR in animals in recent decades and discussed their working principles, workflows, advantages, and limitations, providing a wealth of reference and information for researchers interested in studying the kidney function in animals and developing techniques to monitor the GFR.

  • Association of Immune-Related Genetic and Epigenetic Alterations with
           Lupus Nephritis

    • Abstract: Background: The familial clustering phenomenon together with environmental influences indicates the presence of a genetic and epigenetic predisposition to systematic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Interestingly, regarding lupus nephritis (LN), the worst complication of SLE, mortality, and morbidity were not consistent with SLE in relation to sexuality and ethnicity. Summary: Genetic and epigenetic alterations in LN include genes and noncoding RNAs that are involved in antigen-presenting, complements, immune cell infiltration, interferon pathways, and so on. Once genetic or epigenetic change occurs alone or simultaneously, they will promote the formation of immune complexes with autoantibodies that target various autoantigens, which results in inflammatory cytokines and autoreactive immune cells colonizing renal tissues and contributing to LN. Key Messages: Making additional checks for immunopathology-related heredity and epigenetic factors may lead to a more holistic perspective of LN.

  • suPAR: An Inflammatory Mediator for Kidneys

    • Abstract: Background: Inflammation is a common feature of many kidney diseases. The implicated inflammatory mediators and their underlying molecular mechanisms however are often not clear. Summary: suPAR is the soluble form of urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR), associated with inflammation and immune activation. It has evolved into a unique circulating kidney disease factor over the last 10 years. In particular, suPAR has multiple looks due to enzymatic cleavage and alternative transcriptional splicing of the uPAR gene. Most recently, suPAR has emerged as a systemic mediator for COVID-19 infection, associated with lung as well as kidney dysfunction. Like membrane-bound uPAR, suPAR could interact with integrins (e.g., αvβ3 integrin) on podocytes, providing the molecular basis for some glomerular kidney diseases. In addition, there have been numerous studies suggesting that suPAR connects acute kidney injury to chronic kidney disease as a special kidney risk factor. Moreover, the implication of circulating suPAR levels in kidney transplantation and plasmapheresis not only indicates its relevance in monitoring for recurrence but also implies suPAR as a possible therapeutic target. In fact, the therapeutic concept of manipulating suPAR function has been evidenced in several kidney disease experimental models. Key Messages: The last 10 years of research has established suPAR as a unique inflammatory mediator for kidneys. While open questions remain and deserve additional studies, modulating suPAR function may represent a promising novel therapeutic strategy for kidney disease.

  • Deep Learning-Based Model Significantly Improves Diagnostic Performance
           for Assessing Renal Histopathology in Lupus Glomerulonephritis

    • Abstract: Background: Assessment of glomerular lesions and structures plays an essential role in understanding the pathological diagnosis of glomerulonephritis and prognostic evaluation of many kidney diseases. Renal pathophysiological assessment requires novel high-throughput tools to conduct quantitative, unbiased, and reproducible analyses representing a central readout. Deep learning may be an effective tool for glomerulonephritis pathological analysis. Methods: We developed a murine renal pathological system (MRPS) model to objectify the pathological evaluation via the deep learning method on whole-slide image (WSI) segmentation and feature extraction. A convolutional neural network model was used for accurate segmentation of glomeruli and glomerular cells of periodic acid-Schiff-stained kidney tissue from healthy and lupus nephritis mice. To achieve a quantitative evaluation, we subsequently filtered five independent predictors as image biomarkers from all features and developed a formula for the scoring model. Results: Perimeter, shape factor, minimum internal diameter, minimum caliper diameter, and number of objects were identified as independent predictors and were included in the establishment of the MRPS. The MRPS showed a positive correlation with renal score (r = 0.480, p #x3c; 0.001) and obtained great diagnostic performance in discriminating different score bands (Obuchowski index, 0.842 [95% confidence interval: 0.759, 0.925]), with an area under the curve of 0.78–0.98, sensitivity of 58–93%, specificity of 72–100%, and accuracy of 74–94%. Conclusion: Our MRPS for quantitative assessment of renal WSIs from MRL/lpr lupus nephritis mice enables accurate histopathological analyses with high reproducibility, which may serve as a useful tool for glomerulonephritis diagnosis and prognosis evaluation.

  • Activated Platelets, the Booster of Chronic Kidney Disease and
           Cardiovascular Complications

    • Abstract: Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has become a global public health problem nowadays. As cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the primary cause of death in advanced CKD patients, much attention has been paid to resolving their cardiovascular complications. However, managing CKD and cardiovascular complications is still a big challenge for nephrologists, as satisfactory treatments are still lacking. Platelets, the second most abundant cells in the blood, are the major participants of hemostasis, thrombosis, and wound healing. In recent years, platelets have been reported in various physiological and pathological processes, including CKD and CKD-related CVDs.

  • Treatment of Membranous Nephropathy by Disulfiram through Inhibition of
           Podocyte Pyroptosis

    • Abstract: Introduction: Membranous nephropathy (MN) is a common chronic kidney disease in adults and a major challenge of clinical practice for its treatment. Despite major advances, since the discovery of the phospholipase A2 receptor as the major autoantigen of podocytes in MN, the mechanisms leading to glomerular damage remain elusive. Pyroptosis, a newly discovered type of programed necrotic cell death mainly mediated by gasdermin, was found to be responsible for podocyte injury in MN in our recent work. Objectives: The aim of this study was to explore the therapeutic effect of an FDA-approved drug, disulfiram (DSF), in the treatment of MN by inhibiting pyroptosis. Methods and Results: DSF significantly alleviated C3a/C5a-induced podocyte injury in vitro and renal lesions in passive Heymann nephritis (PHN) rats, as reflected by the decreased percentage of propidium iodide staining podocytes, decreased lactate dehydrogenase release from cultured podocytes and improvement in 24-h urine protein, serum albumin, serum creatinine, abnormal alterations of podocyte injury markers Desmin and WT-1 and podocyte foot process fusion in PHN rats. The protective effect of DSF on podocyte injury in vitro and in vivo can be ascribed to its inhibition of the activation and membrane translocation of the pyroptosis executor gasdermin D (GSDMD) in podocytes. DSF also inhibited the increase and activation of the pyroptosis signaling pathway NLRP3-ASC-Caspase-1/IL-18/GSDMD in C3a/C5a-treated podocytes and renal tissue of PHN rats. Conclusion: DSF is a potential drug for MN treatment, and its clinical application needs to be further investigated.

  • Development and Validation of a Prognostic Nomogram to Predict 30-Day
           Mortality Risk in Patients with Sepsis-Induced Cardiorenal Syndrome

    • Abstract: Introduction: Sepsis-induced cardiorenal syndrome (sepsis-induced CRS) is a devastating medical condition that is frequently associated with a high fatality rate. In this study, we aimed to develop an individualized nomogram that may help clinicians assess 30-day mortality risk in patients diagnosed with sepsis-induced CRS. Methods: A total of 340 patients with sepsis-induced CRS admitted from January 2015 to May 2019 in Shanghai Tongji Hospital were used as a training cohort to develop a nomogram prognostic model. The model was constructed using multivariable logistic analyses and was then externally validated by an independent cohort of 103 patients diagnosed with sepsis-induced CRS from June 2019 to December 2020. The prognostic ability of the nomogram was assessed through discrimination, calibration, and accuracy. Results: Five prognostic factors were determined and included in the nomogram: age, Sequential (sepsis-related) Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score, vasopressors, baseline serum creatinine, and the rate of change in myoglobin. Our prognostic nomogram showed well-fitted calibration curves and yielded strong discrimination power with the area under the curve of 0.879 and 0.912 in model development and validation, respectively. In addition, the nomogram prognostic model exhibited an evidently higher predictive accuracy than the SOFA score. Conclusions: We developed a prognostic nomogram model for patients with sepsis-induced CRS and externally validated the model in another independent cohort. The nomogram exhibited greater strength in predicting 30-day mortality risk than the SOFA score, which may help clinicians estimate short-term prognosis and modulate therapeutic strategies.

  • Chronic Kidney Disease and Cognitive Impairment: The Kidney-Brain Axis

    • Abstract: Background: Cognitive impairment, increasingly recognized as a major social burden, is commonly found in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Summary: Vascular damage, uremic toxicity, oxidative stress, and peripheral/central inflammation induced by CKD might be involved in brain lesions and ultimately result in cognitive decline. Uncovering the pathophysiology of CKD-associated cognitive impairment is important for early diagnosis and prevention, which undoubtedly prompts innovative pharmacological treatments. Key Messages: Here, we sequentially review the current understanding and advances in the epidemiology, risk factors, and pathological mechanisms of cognitive impairment in CKD. Furthermore, we summarize the currently available therapeutic strategies for cognitive impairment in CKD.
