Presence of an HO-1 expression threshold in renal glomeruli

Data Brief. 2015 Nov 10;5:921-5. doi: 10.1016/j.dib.2015.11.001. eCollection 2015 Dec.


This article reports data describing HO-1 expression patterns of heme oxygenase (HO)-1 in isolated rat glomeruli and in cultured glomerular epithelial cells (GEC) in response to its natural substrate heme. Qualitative and quantitative data are presented to support presence of a HO-1 expression threshold in glomeruli but not in GEC. Interpretation of our data and further insight into HO-1 expression pattern in glomeruli may be found in 'HO-1 expression control in the rat glomerulus' [1].
