Podocyte injury plays an important role in diabetic nephropathy (DN), yet the underlying molecular mechanisms of podocyte injury in DN is not clear. Here, we investigated the role of activating transcription factor 4 (ATF4) and HO-1 in DN-induced podocyte injury. Protein expression was measured by western blotting (WB) and immunofluorescence. Cellular apoptosis was quantified by flow cytometry. ATF4 siRNA knockdown and HO-1 overexpression in podocyte were employed to evaluate the role of ER stress in...
