Chronic kidney disease is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity in Western countries and is estimated to affect 11% of the adult population. The possibility of treatment of chronic kidney disease has been severely impaired by our poor knowledge of the regenerative properties of the kidney. Recent results obtained in humans, together with genetic tagging experiments performed in rodents, demonstrated that the epithelial components of the cortical nephron share a unique progenitor, which can… CONTINUE READING
