PHOTO 26 - Rat kidney

Rat kidney.

Histological section through the mid IS.


Detail of vascular bundle comprising arterial vasa recta (round shaped and with small diameter) and venous vasa recta (wider and with less regular shape because they occupy the whole available space between arterial vasa recta). Some TALs and thin descending limbs are visible around the vascular bundle.
