Description

Part of a major reference work on physiology, this is a two-volume account of kidney function. The early chapters emphasize structure and relationships between structure and function. Tissue culture and renal micropuncture are among the many techniques discussed in detail. The contributors present the modern concepts of renal function, including the biochemistry, cell biology and morphology of the kidney. Experimental techniques to study renal function are given detailed treatment. The chapters span the entire range of knowledge about kidney function, from the level of the plasma membrane to whole organ function, regulation and integration of kidney function into whole body homeostasis.show more
