Caption A: Kidney section from a 50 week old Hmox1tm1Poss/+ mouse stained with Prussian blue for detection of loosely bound ferric iron, shown at low magnification. Stainable renal iron was rarely detectable in heterozygous or wild-type mice. B: Kidney section from a 50 week old Hmox1tm1Poss/Hmox1tm1Poss mouse stained with Prussian blue. Note the intense blue positive staining in the proximal cortical tubules (arrows). C: Liver section from a 50 week old heterozygous mouse stained with Prussian blue and at low magnification, displaying no hepatic iron deposits. D: Liver section from 50 week old homozygous mouse stained with Prussian blue, demonstrating iron-loaded Kupffer cells (arrows), as well as diffusely staining hepatocytes. Note the faint-staining regenerative nodule indicative of injury (*). E: High-magnification view of liver from 50 week old heterozygous mouse stained with Prussian blue, displaying no detectable iron in hepatocytes. F: High-magnification view of liver section from 50 week old homozygous mouse stained with Prussian blue, indicating iron-positive granules in hepatocytes (arrowheads), and intensely staining Kupffer cells (arrows). All magnification bars: 100um
