Figure 1: CD133 expression in the glomeruli of adult kidneys. CD133 is expressed weakly (1+) in the parietal epithelium of normal adult glomeruli but not in the podocytes, endothelium, or mesangium (a). In cases of glomerulonephritis, CD133 is expressed in cellular crescents (b), the proliferative epithelial component of collapsing glomerulopathy (c), and bridging tissue between parietal epithelium and visceral epithelial areas in the membranoproliferative pattern of glomerulopathy (d) (magnification ×600, (a)–(d)).
