Supplementary Material

We performed flow cytometry analysis using MitoSox showing reduced level of mitochondrial ROS production by treatment of PGC1a activators under high glucose condition in HKC8 cells (Supplementary Figure 1). Supplementary Figure 2 provides high magnified images of kidneys (PAS and Masson’s trichorme staining) from normal control, diabetic control, diabetes + metformin and diabetic + AICAR groups. Supplementary Figure 3 showed the results of western blot analysis suggesting restoration of phosphorylated and total PGC1a expression by treatment of AICAR or metformin in diabetic kidneys.
