Figure 3

Photomicrographs of kidney sections, H&E stain 400x. (a) 0 mg/kg bw: observed normal proximal and distal tubules (DT), glumerulus (G), blood vessels, and interstition. Podocyte (P), urinary pole (UP), and corpuscular space (CS) appear within normal range. (b) 400 mg/kg bw: proximal (PT) and distal tubule (DT), glomerulus (G), blood vessels, and interstition. Podocyte (P) and corpuscular space (CS) appear within normal range. (c) 800 mg/kg bw: normal architecture of a kidney section; cross-section of an arteriol (A) and a closely packed renal tubule is observed. (d) 1200 mg/kg bw: normal distal tubule (DT), glomerulus (G), blood vessels and interstation. (e) 1600 mg/kg bw: a closely packed renal tubule is observed, and corpuscular space (CS) appears within normal range. (f) 2000 mg/kg bw: normal proximal tubule (PT), glomerulus (G), and corpuscular space (CS) appear within normal range.
