There is currently no information available as to whether different renal fibroblast subpopulation can be identified and whether they show differences in functional properties. We therefore compared the growth characteristics of interstitial fibroblasts derived from the rabbit renal cortex and inner medulla (papilla) and sought cell-specific markers for the two populations of cells. Analyses of the population dynamics revealed that the mitotic lifespan of papillary fibroblasts (PF) is… CONTINUE READING
