Tubulo-interstitial nephropathy (TIN) is a critical pathological setting for the renal prognosis, and an increase in the urine magnesium excretion is a well-known characteristic feature as one of clinical parametets for the assessment of TIN. We examined the correlation between the development of TIN and the changes in the mRNA expression of renal magnesium-transporting molecules in rats with unilateral ureter obstruction (UUO).
