Diabetic Nephropathy: Methods And Protocols
This book provides a toolkit of novel research approaches for investigators to study diabetic nephropathy, including critical experimental models from the fly to the fish, cells in culture, and in vivo mammalian approaches. The collection also explores powerful techniques to image the kidney, such as traditional histological techniques as well as electron, confocal, and two-photon microscopy, pathophysiology of the diabetic kidney, and gene editing and regenerative medicine. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Diabetic Nephropathy: Methods and Protocols seeks to foster new research directions and inspire ideas to enhance our understanding of diabetic nephropathy and to develop treatments for this condition.
