1. Studies of local renal tissue effect of a specific gene product that is normally expressed in the kidney by cell-type specific gene targeting vs chimeric mouse. Celltype specific gene targeting, if successfully performed, can selectively inactivate a gene of interest in the kidney, and not in other organs. However, some abnormal phenotypes in the kidney can change the environment surrounding the kidney via ECF volume change, and so on, and, hence, blood pressure and so on, which in turn secondarily induces other abnormal phenotypes within the kidney.
