    摘要: Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) can cause inflammation and fibrosis, in addition to being the main complication of diabetes. Among many factors, epigenetic alterations in aberrant histone modifications play a key role in causing DKD. In this study, the mechanism of GSK-J4, a histone demethylase KDM6A inhibitor, was evaluated in streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice. It was confirmed that GSK-J4, via dickkopf-1 (DKK1) modulation, could significantly reduce proteinuria and glomerulosclerosis in diabetic mice. The mRNA accumulation levels of DKK1, TGF-beta 1, fibronectin, and collagen IV were significantly elevated in diabetic mice. In contrast, the mRNA accumulations of those genes were significantly reduced in diabetic mice treated with GSK-J4 compared to those in diabetic mice, relatively speaking. The protein accumulation levels of fibronectin and collagen IV were significantly elevated in diabetic mice. Furthermore, GSK-J4 attenuated the high glucose-induced expression of profibrotic factors in mesangial cells via DKK1. In conclusion, our study provides a novel strategy to eliminate fibrosis in the kidneys of DKD mice. Using GSK-J4 reduces DKK1 expression, thereby ameliorating renal insufficiency, glomerulosclerosis morphological abnormalities, inflammation, and fibrosis in diabetic mice.
