Physiological Reports at Experimental Biology

Our Virtual Issue highlights the range of articles in the area of Cardiovascular Advances that were published in Physiological Reports in 2014. As you will see when reading this selection, the field is being advanced by developments in technology, theoretical approaches, in vivo studies and electrophysiology and molecular studies. The works chosen range from those striving to get a better understanding, or a better way of measuring, basic physiological parameters, through to those concerned with pathologies, and on to those examining basic mechanisms.

Physiological Reports - Author Podcast 3, Don Kohan

Please join Tom Kleyman, deputy editor of Physiological Reportsand Don Kohan, Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Utah, as they discuss a manuscript that will published in upcoming issue of Physiological Reports by Don and his colleagues Joy Kittikulsuth, Deborah Stuart and Alfred N. Van Hoek.There are multiple isoforms of adenylyl cyclase, and three isoforms are expressed throughout the nephron. Their work addresses the question of whether nephron-specific deletion of adenylyl cyclase 3 affects renal Na and water handling.
