  • medulla
  • MIWC is expressed in the inner medulla of the kidney and has been suggested to be localised in the vasa recta. (springer.com)
  • The deeper part of the kidney, the medulla, consists of a number (6-18) of conical pyramids, the tips of which ( papillae ) project into the funnel-shaped urine collectors - the renal calyxes (calices) - which merge to form the funnel-shaped upper end of the ureter - the renal pelvis.

  • Transplant
  • Sponsored by the Kidney Foundation on Canada, he will study on the role of the microenvironment in the renal transplant on the modulation of the phenotype of macrophages. (kidney.ca)
  • Therefore, the major goal of the study is to analyse for the first time the host responses in kidney-transplant recipients with chronic HEV infection and to compare them to the host responses in kidney-transplant recipients without viral infection (controls), to identify a specific peripheral signature using blood microarray-based gene expression profiling. (bioportfolio.com)
  • If peripheral and liver signatures are parallel, peripheral signature may become a non-invasive tool of exploration of chronic HEV infection in kidney-transplant recipients. (bioportfolio.com)
  • This study will investigate tolerance in kidney transplant patients. (bioportfolio.com)
  • duct cells
  • The inhibitor of protein kinase C Ro-31-8220 in the concentration of 100 nM inhibited the desmopressin effect on P f in 18 day-old and adult mice but did not inhibit the effect of the analog of the vasopressin secondary messenger cAMP, N6,O2-dibutyryl cyclic monophosphate, on P f of the plasma membrane in collecting duct cells.

  • These results indicate the lack of an AVP-independent mechanism for upregulating AQP-2 mRNA expression in renal collecting duct cells. (physiology.org)
  • diseases
  • The NephoMIC project is a biological collection in patients of Nephrology, allowing the study of the links between kidney diseases, Immunity system and Cardiovascular complications. (bioportfolio.com)
  • cortical
  • Cytoplasmic vacuoles are normally present in the outer cortical tubules of male mice in certain strains, but are not typically present in female mice or rats. (nih.gov)
  • Normally, male mice have variable cortical tubule cytoplasmic vacuolationand do not have to be diagnosed (see Kidney, Renal Tubule -Cytoplasmic Alteration ).In male mice, cytoplasmic vacuolation should be diagnosed only when the number and/or size of vacuoles is greater than that of the concurrent controls.Cytoplasmic vacuolation in female mice and male and female rats should be diagnosed whenever present.

  • postnatal development
  • Ivanova, L. 2009-12-03 00:00:00 The kidney of immaturely born mammals in early postnatal development is insensitive to the effect of the antidiuretic hormone, vasopressin. (deepdyve.com)
  • urea
  • C2: State the source of urea in the body and describe how urea is transported to the kidneys. (slideplayer.com)
  • Amino Acids  Glycogen + Urea Useful carbohydrate stored in the liver Urea passes into the bloodstream and is transported to the kidneys where it is removed from the blood. (slideplayer.com)
  • People can live with only one kidney, but if both kidneys become damaged, urea will build up and will eventually cause death if not treated. (slideplayer.com)
  • Rats
  • Male homozygous Brattleboro rats, weighing 250-280 g, in which endogenous AVP was absent due to an inherited defect in the AVP gene ( 25 , 28 ) were used in the present experiments to examine the expression of AQP-2 mRNA in the kidneys in the presence or absence of exogenous dDAVP. (physiology.org)
  • digestive
  • Hormones are also produced by organs or tissues whose function is not primarily an endocrine one: the digestive tract, the heart, and the kidneys all produce hormones. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Filtration
  • Thus filtration in the kidney is essentially non-selective - substances which the body needs to retain are filtered, as well as those substances which need to be excreted. (encyclopedia.com)
  • transplantation
  • In the past decade, her research work has been focusing on the study of biomarkers for the prediction of clinical outcomes in kidney transplantation, cardiovascular disease and vascular biology. (kidney.ca)
  • One of the most common complications of kidney transplantation is organ rejection, which occurs because the body's immu. (bioportfolio.com)
  • vascular
  • Are anti-LG3 anitbodies predictive biomarkers of severity and effectors of micro vascular damage in kidney t ransplant recipients with delayed graft function? (kidney.ca)
  • chronic
  • Current research projects relate to the use of new therapies for the prevention and treatment of chronic kidney disease and associated heart failure. (kidney.ca)
  • Kidney, Renal tubule - Vacuolation, Cytoplasmic in a treated male B6C3F1 mouse from a chronic study. (nih.gov)
  • Bone Biopsy Results in Chronic Kidney Disease: a Single-Center Experience. (bioportfolio.com)
  • Time to rethink the use of bone biopsy to prevent fractures in patients with chronic kidney disease. (bioportfolio.com)
  • The purpose of this review is to provide evidence to justify the use of bone biopsy data to guide decisions regarding fracture prevention in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). (bioportfolio.com)
  • prostate
  • It should not, however, be used to collect specimens from males with acute inflammation of the prostate or from a patient of either sex with a fractured pelvis. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • incidence
  • As the nuclear family has morphed over the years more and more seniors are shuttled off to senior living, assisted living and nursing facilities - all increasing the incidence that the abandonment aspect of kidney collecting tubules will be activated. (newmedicineonline.com)
