Chapter 2 discusses the important ‘tubular’ aspect of renal physiology, which continues to accelerate with the ‘new genetics’ and other technological advances, particularly in structural imaging and molecular analysis. The papers included begin with a description of the techniques of renal micropuncture and isolated tubule microperfusion, which were essential in mapping the transport properties along the nephron, integrating the later and more recent findings (and cell models) derived from cellular- and molecular-based studies in vitro.
