This project is aimed to investigate the potential role of the histamine H4 receptor as a new pharmacological target for diabetic nephropathy. Specific aims to assess this issue are:
Expertise in the lab include renal cell culture, primary human tubular cell cultures (available through a collaborations with Prof. Giovanni Camussi e Dott.ssa Cristina Grange, Department of Medical Science and Centre for Molecular Biotechnology, Università di Torino, Turin, Italy), in vivo models of diabetes and diabetic nephropathy. Technologies employed include immunobiochemistry and molecular biology.
