Assessment of Mitochondrial Function in a Mouse Model of Mild Chronic Kidney Disease Induced by High-Fat and High-Salt Diet

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a complex disorder that presents substantial challenges in understanding its pathophysiological mechanisms, including mitochondrial alterations. However, there are no established mouse models that recapitulate the CKD phenotype observed in humans. We hypothesized that a high-fat, high-salt diet would induce a mild CKD phenotype and mitochondrial dysfunction in mice.
