BACKGROUND While the renal system is critical for maintaining homeostatic equilibrium within the body, it is also susceptible to various kinds of damage. Tubule dysfunction in particular contributes to acute renal injury and chronic kidney disease in millions of patients worldwide. Because current treatments are highly invasive and often unavailable, gaining a better understanding of the regenerative capacity of renal structures is vital. Although the effects of various types of acute damage… CONTINUE READING
