Description:

The interstitium of the renal medulla is hypertonic, imposing deleterious effects on local cells. At the same time, the hypertonicity provides osmotic gradient for water reabsorption and is a local signal for tissue-specific gene expression and differentiation of the renal medulla, which is a critical organ for water homeostasis.
