Decrease of renal aquaporins 1-4 is associated with renal function impairment in pediatric congenital hydronephrosis.


BACKGROUND Renal aquaporins (AQP1-4) concentration is downregulated and is in proportion to the degree of hydronephrosis graded by ultrasound in pediatric congenital hydronephrosis (CH). However, the relationship between the expression of AQP1-4 with the changes of renal function impairment (RFI) evaluated by (99m)Tc-DTPA renal dynamic imaging is still… (More)
