- Uranium and fluoride induce an adaptive response in mice exposed chronically.
- Apoptosis regulation is involved in uranium-induced adaptive response.
- Inflammatory control is involved in fluoride-induced adaptive response.
- Uranium induces UPR and autophagy in the kidney.
- Fluoride induces UPR in the kidney.
Despite their differences in physicochemical properties, both uranium (U) and fluoride (F) are nephrotoxicants at high doses but their adverse effects at low doses are still the subject of debate.
This study aims to improve the knowledge of the biological mechanisms involved through an adaptive response model of C57BL/6 J mice chronically exposed to low priming doses of U (0, 10, 20 and 40 mg/L) or F (0, 15, 30 and 50 mg/L) and then challenged with acute exposure of 5 mg/kg U or 7.5 mg/kg NaF.
We showed that an adaptive response occurred with priming exposures to 20 mg/L U and 50 mg/L F, with decreased levels of the biomarkers KIM-1 and CLU compared to those in animals that received the challenge dose only (positive control). The adaptive mechanisms involved a decrease in caspase 3/7 activities in animals exposed to 20 mg/L U and a decrease in in situ VCAM expression in mice exposed to 50 mg/L F. However, autophagy and the UPR were induced independently of priming exposure to U or F and could not be identified as adaptive mechanisms to U or F.
Taken together, these results allow us to identify renal adaptive responses to U and F at doses of 20 and 50 mg/L, probably through decrease apoptosis and inflammatory cell recruitment.

Effects and Molecular Mechanism of L-Type Calcium Channel on Fluoride-Induced Kidney Injury.
This study aimed to investigate the role and molecular mechanism of L-type calcium channel (LTCC) on fluoride exposure-induced kidney injury. Subchronic and chronic fluoride exposures were included in the experiment. Each part contained 140 ICR male mice. They were randomly divided into 7 groups: control group, high-fluoride group (NaF 30
Influence of supplementary vitamins and minerals on lipid peroxidation and redox state in heart, kidney and liver of rats exposed to fluoride.
The effect of fluoride (F) and supplementary vitamins and minerals on lipid peroxidation (LPO) and redox state (RS) in heart , kidney and liver of 40 (4 groups of 10) male Wistar rats were studied. One group of rats was left untreated as control, group 1 was received 5 mg/l
Increased fluoride content in the femur growth plate and cortical bone of uremic rats
In chronic renal insufficiency (CRI), serum levels of fluoride (F-) are elevated. However, there is limited information about the effects of F- on bone in CRI. In this study, we determined whether F- content in mineralizing tissue (growth plate, cortical bone, and bone marrow of the femur) is affected by
Inorganic fluoride kinetics and renal tubular function after sevoflurane anesthesia in chronic renal failure patients receiving hemodialysis
Although sevoflurane is used in clinical anesthesia, its effects on renal function and inorganic fluoride (F-) kinetics in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) have not been determined. We investigated F- kinetics and renal tubular function in sevoflurane anesthesia in CRF patients having hemodialysis. Five patients dialyzed and five with
Changed cellular membrane lipid composition and lipid peroxidation of kidney in rats with chronic fluorosis
An animal model of chronic fluorosis was produced by subjecting Wistar rats to high doses of fluoride in drinking water for a prolonged period. Phospholipid and neutral lipid contents in rat kidney were then analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and fatty acid compositions from individual phospholipids were measured by
