Genes involved in cytosketetal structure and function (Vim, Tubb5, Tmsb10, Tmsb4x, Anxa2), in cell adhesion (Spp1, Col1a1, Clu, Lgals3), and detoxification enzymes (Gstm2, Gstp2) are upregulated following cisplatin-induced injury.
Upregulation of Tubb5, Col1a1, Gst, Lgals3, and Anxa2 and downregulation of Igfbp3 and Egf were also observed in ischemia-induced acute renal failure in mice on Affymetrix Murine U74A arrays (Yoshida et al.
