Figure 4 : Electronmicrographs of RMICs in all groups.

CNT: A) The longitudinal sections of RMICs between ascending and descending loops of Henle, capillaries and collecting tubules (x6.000). B) Circled area in A. SER has a normal appearance (x15.000). C) A RMIC in control group with normal appearance(x12.000). DEX: A) A RMIC with decreased lipid droplets (x6.000). B) Circled area in A. Lysosomes filled with granular material (arrows) (x25.000). C) RMICs were deprived of organelles. Empty SER cisternae and degeneration of SER membrane(x12.000). IND: A) Note the increased number of lipiddroplets in RMIC cytoplasm (x6.000). B) Circled area in A. Note the enlarged SER and PNCs. Arrow shows lipiddroplets in the process of degeneration to form myel instructures (x20.000). C) An apoptotic RMIC (x6.000). CXB: A) A RMIC from CXB group (x6.000). B) Circled area in A. Mitochondria showhy pertrophy. Note the close relation of mitochondria with enlarged SER cisternae (x20.000). C) Note the increased number of lipid droplets and organelles in RMICs (x6.000). Red arrow shows an apoptotic RMIC. SER: Smooth end oplasmicreticulum. White stars:RMICs. Red stars: Apoptotic RMICs.
