Techniques that allow cells to self-assemble into three-dimensional (3-D) spheroid microtissues provide powerful in vitro models that are becoming increasingly popular--especially in fields such as stem cell research, tissue engineering, and cancer biology. Unfortunately, caveats involving scale, expense, geometry, and practicality have hindered the(More)
ZSF1 rats exhibit spontaneous nephropathy secondary to obesity, hypertension, and diabetes, and have gained interest as a model system with potentially high translational value to progressive human disease. To thoroughly characterize this model, and to better understand how closely it recapitulates human disease, we performed a high resolution longitudinal(More)
