There remains a lack of robust mouse models with key features of advanced human diabetic nephropathy (DN). Few options of murine models of DN require mutations to be superimposed to obtain desired phenotypic characteristics. Most genetically modified mice are on the C57BL/6 background; however, they are notorious for resistance to develop DN. Read More
