Figure 1: PA-induced podocytes changes at different time points (inverted-phase contrast microscope ×200). Note: (a, d, g): the control group, 8 h, 24 h, 48 h, resp., (foot processes and the connection between podocytes are intact) (b): PAN-induced 8 h; (c): DEX-treated 8 h; (e): PAN-induced 24 h; (f): DEX-treated 24 h; (h): PAN-induced 48 h (foot process retracted and lost, cell interconnected disappeared); (i): DEX-treated 48 h (foot processes and the connection between podocytes are still preserved).
