The precise cellular signalling responsible for kidney regeneration and exposing the multi-layered nature of kidney growth has been pinpointed in a new study.
The research paves the way for novel cellular and molecular therapeutics to achieve human kidney regeneration and alleviate the shortage of kidney organs for transplantation.
Doctors and scientists have for years been astonished to observe patients with kidney disease experiencing renal regeneration. The kidney, unlike its neighbor the liver, was universally understood to be a static organ once it had fully developed.
Now a new study conducted by researchers at Sheba Medical Center, Tel Aviv University, and Stanford University turns that theory on its head by pinpointing the precise cellular signalling responsible for renal regeneration and exposing the multi-layered nature of kidney growth.
“We wanted to change the way people thought about kidneys — about internal organs altogether,” said Dr. Dekel, who specializes in stem-cell research, genetics, and nephrology. “Very little is known even now about the way our internal organs function at the single cell level. This study flips the paradigm that kidney cells are static — in fact, kidney cells are continuously growing, all the time.”
