Glomerular capillary growth was studied in kidneys in five- to 540-day-old perfusion-fixed normal or sham-operated rats (C) as well as in unilaterally nephrectomized three-day-old (NN) and 120-day-old (NA) rats. The number and volume of mature glomeruli were estimated using the fractionator. The glomerular number was unaffected by neonatal or adult… CONTINUE READING
