Renal Corpuscle of Rat Kidney (High Magnification)

Renal Corpuscle of Rat Kidney (High Magnification)

Round cellular formation visualized in center of slide is a renal corpuscle (RC). Slight void on lower side is indicative of urinary pole (UP) while higher side is shows higher cellular density, a trait of the vascular pole (VP).

Multilocular fat

Multilocular fat

The arrows point to multilocular fat cells. In each of these cells, there are multiple small droplets of lipid in the cytoplasm. In general, nuclei are found in the center of the cells in contrast to unilocular cells where the nuclei are found at the periphery. (EDITED BY EAC)

Unilocular Fat

Unilocular Fat

This is an example of adipose tissue. notice the nucleus pushed to the edge of the cell, as well as the large lipid droplet taking up most of the space in the cell.

N=Nucleus
LD=Lipid Droplet
