A special feature of the renal stem/progenitor cell niche is its always close neighborhood to the capsule during organ development. To explore this link, neonatal kidney was investigated by histochemistry and transmission electron microscopy. For adequate contrasting, fixation of specimens was performed by glutaraldehyde including tannic acid. The immunohistochemical data illustrate that renal stem/progenitor cells are not distributed randomly but are positioned specially to the capsule… CONTINUE READING
