Phenotype Image Detail
Caption IL-21R deficiency prevents renal disease and mortality characteristic of BXSB-Yaa mice. (A and B) Kidney sections from 16-week-old Il21rtm1Wjl/Il21r+ X/Yaa (Il21r+/-) and Il21rtm1Wjl/Il21rtm1Wjl X/Yaa (Il21-/-) mice were stained with H&E, periodic acid/Schiff reagent (PAS), or Masson's trichrome. (A) Representative sections. Kidneys of Il21rtm1Wjl/Il21r+ X/Yaa (Il21r+/-) mice exhibited multiple pathological features, including a thickening of the glomerular basement membrane, perivascular inflammation associated with neutrophilic infiltrates, and focal adhesions with marked glomerular fibrosis, sclerosis, and Ig deposits. In contrast, kidneys from Il21rtm1Wjl/Il21rtm1Wjl X/Yaa (Il21-/-) mice were essentially free of all these abnormalities.
