Article title: Environmental circadian disruption suppresses rhythms in kidney function and accelerates excretion of renal injury markers in urine of male hypertensive rats

Authors: Atlantis M. Hill, G. Ryan Crislip, Adam Stowie, Ivory Ellis, Anne Ramsey, Oscar Castanon-Cervantes, Michelle L. Gumz, Alec J. Davidson

From the authors: “We conclude from this study that the kidney may be a target organ for environmental circadian disruption, subsequently influencing the development of hypertension and associated complications, including renal damage.”

This study is highlighted as one of March’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
