Research description

Our research interest is focus on the regulation of renal epithelial cell function by eicosanoids. In the past years, we have investigated the expression and regulation of cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 in the kidney, especially in reanl cortex under some pathological/ disease status; explored the interaction of COX-2 with renin- angiotensin system and nitric oxide; the transcriptional, post- transcriptional regulation of COX-2 by low chloride and its signal transduction. Now we are continuing to study the physiologic and pathophysiologic roles of COX-2 and its interaction with RAS and NO in the kidney.
