In the kidney, VEGF is produced by glomerular podocytes and tubular epithelial cells, and bind to VEGF receptors found on mesangium, glomerular, and peritubular
capillaries (Gurevich & Perazella, 2009).
Surrounding the tubular system is an extensive network of capillaries --the peritubular
capillary network--which is supplied with blood from the efferent arteriole, blood that has already passed through the glomerulus.
Histopathologically, renal impairment associated with lead poisoning is characterized by proximal tubular nephropathy, glomerul ar sclerosis, and fibrosis in peritubular
and interstitial lesions (Cramer et al.
The most prominent immunostaining of FGFR1 and FGFR2 was observed in interstitial and peritubular
cells with little or no changes in all phases of postnatal development.
Nguansangiam et al (21) did study on electron microscopic examination of renal tissues in fatal cases of falciparum malaria and found PRBC sequestration in glomeruli and tubulointerstitial vessels, acute tubular changes, mild glomerular hypercellularity and monocyte infiltrate in glomerular and peritubular
FFP = free flow pressure, PC = peritubular
Erythropoietin is a glycoprotein that controls erythropoiesis, or blood cell production and erythropoietin is produced by the peritubular
capillary endothelial cells in the kidney.
The synthesis of erythropoietin is triggered by decrease of oxygen tension at the level of peritubular
For example, carbamylated albumin may cause enhanced tubular cell damage and promote peritubular
10] suggested that hypothyroidism results in delayed maturation of sertoli cells, apoptosis of germ cells and peritubular
myoid cells in histological patterns with optical microscopy after exposure to 60 Hz and 1mT EMF, although it seems to influence srtoli cells qualitatively, causing the delay of the appearance of tubule lumen.
Dentin tubule occlusion takes place as teeth age via continued deposition of peritubular
dentin (40) which may influence the physical properties of the dentin.
Approximately 90% of systemic EPO in adults is produced by peritubular
interstitial fibroblasts in the renal cortex and outer medulla of the kidney.
