Nephrocyte (1%) This medium-sized (10-16-[micro]m) cell closely resembles pigment cells but lacks any pigment color.
Finally, storage cells include both pigment cells and nephrocytes. A comprehensive guide to hemocyte identification using brightfield Giemsa-stained images is provided (Table 2), with highmagnification pictures exemplifying the most common aspect of each cell type (Fig.
When rats were given nephrotoxic drugs leading to kidney injury, generation of the reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) was activated, resulting in in vivo changes of the oxidative stress levels and out of balance of the body oxidation and antioxidative stress system; consequently varying degrees of nephrocyte
The kidney is composed of tall cuboidal to columnar epithelial cells (nephrocytes
) that are arranged into ducts and in tubular folds along the dorsal aspect (Fig.
negundo in streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice and found that it helped in the protection of hepatocytes, nephrocytes
and pancreatic ([beta]-cells probably by its action against NF-kappaB and iNOS mediated inflammation.
This first volume covers the order Chilopoda, the centipedes, discussing such aspects as general morphology, integument and associated organs such as solitary epidermal glands and bioluminescence, musculature and locomotion, the excretory system including the maxillary organ of the Notostigmophora and nephrocytes
, sense organs, reproduction, ecology, distribution, fossil history, and taxonomy.
The systemic nature of these high severity infections was evidenced by the appearance of the parasites in the nephrocytes
in the gills (Fig.

of the shore crab.
For example, an increased number of nephrocytes
in gill filaments, a blackened appearance of the gills, necrosis of gill cells resulting in narrowed or obstructed hemolymphatic vessels, the appearance of a space between the cuticle and the epithelial cells, which contains black electron-dense material and even fragmentation of nuclei within gill cells could be observed when P.
These clusters of stain appeared to be the developing thoracic nephrocytes, which stain in the adult.
In dissected adult flies, intense X-gal staining was found in the thoracic nephrocytes [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 8A OMITTED], abdominal pericardial cells [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 8B OMITTED], and two clearly demarcated regions of the ventriculus [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 8C OMITTED!.
Some regions of staining did not change in intensity (thoracic nephrocytes and pericardial cells).
