Product Image Rosebud Kidney

Rosebud Kidney

Greg Dressler, Ph.D., Professor of Pathology, Co-Director, Center for Organogenesis

This is an image of a mouse kidney at an early stage of embryonic development. The image illustrates the intimate relationships between cells of the nephron (red) and the branching collecting ducts (green). The purple/blue dye marks the boundary of each tubule and each new nephron from the surrounding space. Studying mouse kidney development can help us learn more about human kidney diseases such as Wilm's tumor and polycystic kidney disease.
