Caption: Figure 7: Localization of meprin B in the juxtamedullary region of the kidney (a), acid Schiff-stained kidney sections (b), and representative immunoblot for villin in BBM-enriched kidney protein fractions from wild-type and meprin [alpha][beta]KO mice at 18 weeks post-STZ (c).
Six randomly selected high-power fields (x400) of juxtamedullary cortex were counted to determine the number of apoptotic nuclei.
Small portions of renal tissue from the cortical or juxtamedullary zone were immediately stored in preserve solution (RNA later, Qiagen) for expression analysis, while the majority of renal tissue taken by core biopsy was used for routine histology performed by the standard method.
The anatomy of the vascular bed in the medulla is intricate and supplies juxtamedullary glomeruli with blood from the "plexus of spiral vessels" and the branches of the arterial tree, (159) in contrast to the subcortical region, which is only supplied by interlobular arteries.
A hitherto undescribed vulnerability of the juxtamedullary glomeruli in lipoid nephrosis.
From each kidney, a total of 8 interstitial images of each slide (renal cortex and juxtamedullary region) were captured and processed with digital camera Leica DFC495 (8 Megapixel CCD) integrating into Leica DMI6000 inverted microscope (Austria) using the 10x objective.
At the end of the experiment when the semithin sections of fragments from LD-STZ group were prepared, only juxtamedullary region was observed while glomeruli were not found.
(2) Given the similar clinical presentation in minimal-change disease (MCD) and FSGS, it was not until the mid-20th century that it was reported there was a different clinical course for patients with NS in those with minimal glomerular changes versus those with juxtamedullary glomerular hyaline or sclerosing glomerular lesions without cellular proliferation.

Juxtamedullary nephrons (see Figure 1) have longer loops of Henle that extend to the deep layers of the inner medulla, and their efferent arterioles form both a network of peritubular capillaries and a series of vascular loops called the vasa recta.
In the medulla, these capillaries, called the vasa recta, form long straight loops that run parallel to the loops of Henle of the juxtamedullary nephrons and play an important role in the concentration and dilution of urine.
