Abstract

The aim of this study was to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in renal medullary hypertension and reveal their pathogenic mechanisms. We downloaded the gene expression profile of GSE28360 from the Gene Expression Omnibus database. The profile included 14 samples (5 normal and 9 hypertension). The DEGs in normal and disease samples were distinguished with a false-discovery rate threshold of 2 or BTG2, FOS, NR4A1, NR4A2, and NR4A3, respectively. Our results suggest that pathways of angiogenesis and B-cell activation may involve in the progression of renal medulla hypertension.
