Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Cross-section of the kidney of control (A) and Ren1tm1Afu/Ren1tm1Afu (B) mice. Hydronephrosis with atrophic papillae is prominent in the kidneys of mutant mice. Scale bars, 1 mm. Morphology of the cells of the macula densa. Macula densa in mutant mice was characterized by the increase of macula densa number (D) or by the marked accumulation of nuclei like as pseudostratified epithelium (E), although the control mice show simple plaque of distal tubule cells (C). Scale bars, 25 um. Electron microscopy revealed that juxtaglomerular cells of the mutant mice were completely devoid of the storage/secretory granules (G) typically present in wild-type controls (F). Scale bars; 0.25 um.
