To do this job effectively, mitochondria have a characteristic organisation: In addition to an outer membrane, they have an inner membrane with many invaginations.
Since the restoration of the inner cellular ATP plays a significant role in the recovery of the cell, mitochondrial damage is involved in many nephropathies such as acute kidney injury and renal fibrosis.[15] Uncoupling protein 2 (UCP2) belongs to mitochondrial anion-carrier proteins protein, which locates on the mitochondrial inner membrane and exists in many organs.[16] In the study of Jiang et al .,[17] UCP2 could be remarkably induced by transforming growth factor-[sz]1 (TGF-[sz]1) and targeted by miR-30e, which belongs to the family of endogenous noncoding RNA, and the downregulation of miR-30e could trigger the upregulation of UPC2.
