Methods in Renal Toxicology
The only up-to-date compilation of renal methods available, this book is the definitive resource for any renal researcher eager to stay ahead. Methods in Renal Toxicology presents a vast array of methods for the study of renal cellular and tubular structure, function, and biochemistry under physiological, toxicological, and pathological conditions. It provides detailed descriptions in easy-to-understand language of methods designed to enhance your research efforts.
Methods in Renal Toxicology puts you on the cutting edge with valuable chapters detailing molecular methods and transgene and gene targeting - the most recent approaches to the study of renal toxicology. Overall, the book's topics range from non-invasive assessments of renal function in the whole animal and clinical settings to cellular and molecular approaches. Specifically, the book delves into measurements of clearance and urinary markers, histopathology, and methods to assess renal carcinogenesis, mutagenesis, oxidative stress, mitochondria injury, cellular repair, and drug metabolism and transport. A variety of in vitro methods are also described, including the isolated perfused kidney, micropuncture, microperfusion, microdissection, renal slices, isolated perfused tubules, suspensions of tubules and isolated cells, and primary cell cultures and cell lines.
Methods in Renal Toxicology is a must-have resource for all renal investigators. Nowhere else can you find concise descriptions of traditional and up-to-the-minute renal toxicology methods in such a practical, well-written single-volume guide.
