In order to induce type 2 diabetic rats, the DKD model rats were first treated with uninephrectomy to induce hyperfiltration and hyperperfusion and then developed by high-fat diet (67.5% standard fodder, 20% sucrose, 10% lard oil, and 2.5% cholesterol) for 4 weeks.
Indeed, in analogy, experimental renal hypertrophy, induced by uninephrectomy or with high protein diet, enhances renal medullary Na-K-ATPase content and predisposes to outer medullary hypoxic injury in isolated rat kidneys, perfused with red-cell-free oxygenated medium [26].
Bijol and colleagues report a very high incidence of renal abnormalities, with only 25% of the kidneys showing an entirely normal architecture.[sup.17] These abnormalities were associated with a more pronounced decrease in renal function after uninephrectomy, compared to patients with normal parenchyma, as could be anticipated from studies in living kidney donors.[sup.18] Related to the procedure itself, renal artery clamping and renal cooling have been applied to reduce bleeding.

The role of the kidney in Hcy metabolism is supported by the finding that Hcy concentrations increased in living kidney donors after uninephrectomy and remained high 6 months thereafter, despite folate and vitamin [B.sub.12] remaining unchanged (31).
