In this study, proximal tubular structural changes, tubular atrophy, tubular brush-border loss, tubular dilatation, cast formation, vacuolization, the MNL infiltration, erythrocyte extravasation, renal corpuscle morphology and interstitial space structural changes were observed to be lower in the sham group compared to the other three groups when renal histopathology was inspected with a light microscope.
RC: renal corpuscle; CS: capsular space; LI: leukocytes infiltrate; CT: convoluted tubules; G: glomerulus; CV: cytoplasmic vacuolation; NA: nuclear acidophilia (x400 magnification).
[89] described the fuses kidney rat of age of 7 days consisting of cortex and the medulla, the cortex contain renal corpuscles and renal tubules, cortical rays contain arteries feeding kidney with little connective tissue, each renal corpuscle contain glomerulus and Bowmans Capsule, renal tubules which consist of proximal convoluted tubules contain columnar cells with basal nucleus and of distal convoluted tubules contain cubic cells with circular nucleus.
The light microscopic evaluation of tissue samples from kidney of rats exposed to cigarette smoke revealed mesangial cell proliferation in the renal corpuscle, dilatation and congestion in the peritubular capillaries, degeneration in the proximal tubules and atrophic renal corpuscle.
A renal corpuscle is often found in between the afferent and efferent epididymal ducts.
The renal corpuscle of the nephron consisted of glomerulus and Bowman's capsule.
After treatment with aqueous ginger extract, the improvement was shown but some renal corpuscle still suffered from dramatic changes similar to those observed in obese rat groups such as swelling of the podocyte nucleus, the little degree of effacement, narrow urinary space, mesangial cells with irregular outline nuclei and increased number of lysosomes.
The sections were examined under light microscopy (Olympus BX-51, Olympus, Tokyo, Japan) for structural changes in proximal tubules (tubular atrophy, loss of tubular brush border, vacuolisation, tubular dilatation, cast formation), mononuclear cell infiltration, capillary dilatation, interstitial structural changes, renal corpuscle morphology, and necrotic/apoptotic cells.
During the review microscopy we conducted the morphological analysis of structural tissular components of kidneys, after this analysis we studied the morphometrical parameters: number of corpuscles per field, pcs., size of renal corpuscle, micron, size of renal glomerulus, micron, diameter of proximal convoluted tubule, micron, diameter of opening of proximal convoluted tubule, micron, size of epithelial of renal tubules, micron2 and size of their nuclears, micron (2).
