Kidney disease models

COVID-19 response: Video production in affected areas is postponed, publishing text articles first

JoVE will publish text articles after the peer review, which on average takes two months after the manuscript submission. We will film and add corresponding videos to our website when laboratories and facilities in affected areas reopen.

Collection Overview

Kidney disease (such as chronic kidney disease (CKD) and acute kidney injury (AKI)) is a worldwide public health problem. Kidney diseases involve many types of cells, including mesangial cells, endothelial cells, epithelial cells (podocyte) and tubular cells. Additionally, there are many types of kidney disease rodent models, such as: (1) CKD (diabetic kidney disease, chronic glomerular disease, renal sclerosis, renal fibrosis and renal involvement of collagen diseases) and (2) AKI (Ischemia-reperfusion, sepsis induced and drug/toxin induced). This methods collection details how to purify, culture and analyze various renal cells, as well as how to induce and analyze kidney disease rodent models. These models are interesting and helpful for researchers engaged in the study of the physiology and pathology of kidney diseases.
