My lab studies the pathology of pregnancy. Specifically, we are investigating the molecular mechanisms mediating renal blood flow and sodium regulation by the kidney during pregnancy. Recent data suggest that the intrarenal renin-angiotensin system is important in sodium regulation during hypervolemia of pregnancy. Transgenic mice that over-express angiotensinogen do not upregulate renal renin expression and fail to expand their plasma volume. This may be a consequence of differences in renal blood flow early in gestation. How mammals regulate renal blood flow during pregnancy is uncertain. Our mouse cDNA microarray studies suggest that intrarenal histamine production may play an important role.
