Mice lacking or over-expressing a gene of experimental interest have become important tools to understand the regulation of kidney function and water and electrolyte homeostasis. The use of mice in physiological studies is becoming more widespread, but there are still a number of technical limitations that preclude the full utilization of mouse models in renal research. The present chapter focuses upon a set of methods developed in our laboratory to quantify renal function in conscious mice… CONTINUE READING
