The Kidney: Morphology, Biochemistry, Physiology, Volume I focuses on present knowledge about the kidney under normal and pathological conditions, as manifested by morphological, biochemical, and physiological studies.
The selection first takes a look at the embryonic kidney and the general anatomy and histology of the kidney. Discussions focus on the morphogenesis of transient kidneys, physiology of the fetal nephron, renal malformations, vascularization of the kidney, uriniferous tubules, and innervation of the kidney. The book then examines the histochemistry of the kidney and ultrastructure of the normal and pathological glomerulus.
The manuscript ponders on electron microscopy of uriniferous tubules and ultrastructural pathology of tubules and interstitial tissue. Topics include proximal convoluted tubule, basement membranes of the tubules, capillaries, interstitial cells, morphology and functions of the tubular epithelium, fixation and preparation of tissues for electron microscopy, and structure of the submammalian vertebrate tubule.
The selection is highly recommended for morphologists, biochemists, physiologists, pathologists, pharmacologists, and clinicians.
