Increased expression of CYP11B2 in HMC cultured with pIgA. (A) There was increased expression of CYP11B2 mRNA and (B) CYP11B2 protein, but not 11β-HSD2, by HMC cultured with pIgA from patients (IgAN, n = 27) as compared to that of the controls (Control, n = 22). The results represent the mean ± SD. (C) Increased expression of CYP11B2 (arrow) in HMC was confirmed by immunofluorescence staining (magnification × 200).
