AbstractAlterations in the podocyte actin cytoskeleton have been implicated in the development of proteinuric kidney diseases. In the present study, we evaluated the effect of HIV on the podocyte actin cytoskeleton and the mechanism involved. We hypothesized that HIV may be compromising the actin cytoskeleton via downregulation of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) of conditionally immortalized differentiated human podocytes (CIDHPs). HIV-transduced podocytes (HIV/CIDHPs) not only displayed downregulation of VDR but also showed activation of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in the form of enhanced expression of renin and increased production of ANG II. Moreover, CIDHPs lacking VDR displayed enhanced ANG II production, and treatment of HIV/CIDHPs with EB1089 (vitamin D3; VD) attenuated ANG II production. HIV/CIDHPs as well as ANG II-treated CIDHPs exhibited enhanced expression of cathepsin (CTS) L. Additionally, losartan (an ANG II type I receptor blocker) inhibited both HIV- and ANG II-induced podocyte cathepsin L expression. Furthermore, VD down-regulated HIV-induced podocyte CTSL expression. Both losartan and free radical scavengers attenuated HIV- and ANG II-induced podo-cyte reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation. HIV also led to cytosolic CTSL accumulation through enhancement of podocyte lys-osomal membrane permeabilization; on the other hand, VD, losartan, and superoxide dismutase (SOD) attenuated HIV-induced enhanced podocyte cytosolic CTSL accumulation. Morphological evaluation of HIV/CIDHPs revealed sparse actin filaments and attenuated expression of dynamin. Interestingly, podocytes lacking CTSL displayed enhanced dynamin expression, and HIV/CIDHPs expressing CTSL exhibited downregulation of dynamin. These findings indicate that HIV-induced downregulation of podocyte VDR and associated RAS activation and cytosolic CTSL accumulation compromised the actin cytoskeleton. © 2013 the American Physiological Society.
