The shape and arrangement of the developing nephrons were studied three-dimensionally by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) of the neonatal mouse kidney. The specimens were treated with the KOH digestion method in order to remove extracellular connective tissue components, thus enabling the direct observation of the developing nephrons at various stages.
