Abstract

Methods for the mechanistic investigations on renal fibrosis have long been concentrated on individual type of cells, such as fibroblasts and epithelial cells. However, in recent years, growing numbers of studies have been shifting toward the role of the intercellular interactions, such as communication between tubular epithelial cells and fibroblasts. Various co-culture models have been utilized in the studies of cell-cell communication and interaction. In this chapter, we describe an innovative co-culture model employing the porous membranes for spatially partitioning the cells while allowing direct crosstalk between fibroblasts and epithelial cells in an effort of mimicking in vivo environment.
