Testicular Nephrin and Podocin Expression Patterns are Impaired in Infertile Men

Nephrin and podocin are well-known proteins that form a slitdiaphragm structure in the kidneys. Recently, these two proteins have been reported to be expressed in the human testis. In this study, we aimed to investigate the testicular expression patterns of nephrin and podocin in infertile men. ...

Karyomegalic Interstitial Nephritis: a Review of Literature

Karyomegalic Interstitial Nephritis (KIN) is a rare cause of hereditary chronic interstitial nephritis described first time over 40 years ago. The prevalence of this disorder KIN is less than 1% of all the biopsies examined. KIN term was introduced by Mihatsch et al in 1979, who described 3 cases of systemic karyomegaly associated with chronic interstitial nephritis. Disease presents as slowly progressive chronic kidney disease eventually ...

Although control mechanisms have been identified at several levels of the central nervous system and spinal cord, the final pathway in the control of micturition is the autonomic innervation of the urinary bladder and related structures. Micturition is ultimately dependent on the ability of the urinary bladder to contract, generate ...

Fluid Collections after Kidney Transplantation
