• regeneration
  • Our new method can be used to complement nephrotoxicity-induced models of AKI and gain a high-resolution understanding of the cell and molecular alterations that are associated with epithelial regeneration in the kidney nephron. (jove.com)
  • mechanisms
  • Following epithelial cell destruction, nephrons have a limited ability to regenerate, though the mechanisms and limitations that guide this phenomenon remain poorly understood. (jove.com)
  • water
  • The thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle is the only part of the nephron lacking in aquaporin-a common transporter protein for water channels. (wikipedia.org)
  • activity
  • For this purpose we studied the effects of aldosterone and dexamethasone on Na−K-ATPase specific activity in microdissected nephron segments from adrenalectomized rabbits. (springer.com)
  • In other nephron segments, adrenalectomy reduced Na−K-ATPase activity and specific 3 H ouabain binding concomitantly, and therefore left this enzyme's specific activity unaltered. (springer.com)
