This section of notes gives an overview mainly of adult renal histology, see also Renal System Development notes.

Moodle – Virtual Slides requires Moodle log in. Mouse renal podocyte EM [1]. On the outside of the capillary, the foot processes FP cover a major part of the glomerular basement membrane GBM circumference.

The endothelial cell coats the inner surface of the capillary wall and is followed by the three layers of the glomerular basement membrane GBM.

Note that while the smooth muscle fibre layer organisation is described as longitudinal or circular, this is only a general organisation of fibre direction, and is better described as histologj “spiral” organisation.

Nephron Functional unit of kidney Humans up to 1 histolpgi Filtration of waste from blood Endocrine Blood pressure regulation.

Transmission urogenifal micrscopy of a mouse glomerular capillary revealing the structural composition of the glomerulus. The slit-diaphram can be discerned in between the foot processs.


The histolkgi ureter is a thick-walled muscular tube, 25 – 30 cm in length, running from the kidney to the urinary bladder.

Anatomically can be described in two parts the abdominal part pars abdominalis and pelvic part pars pelvina. The ureter is composed of three layers: The muscular layer has also been described as being subdivided into 3 fibre layers: Can be described anatomically by its 4 layers from inside outward: Mucosa – mucus layer a transitional epithelium layer formed into folds rugae.

Submucosa – connects the muscular layer with the mucous layer. Muscular – the detrusor muscle is the muscle of the urinary bladder wall. Serous – the superior or abdominal surfaces and the lateral” surfaces of the bladder are covered by visceral peritoneum, the serous membrane serosa of the abdominal cavity, consisting of mesthelium and elastic fibrous connective tissue.

Detrusor Muscle The adult detrusor muscle consists of three layers of smooth involuntary muscle fibres. Capsule outer layer – dense CT fibroblasts and collagen inner layer – myofibroblasts. Wilm’s tumour Bowman’s capsule – capsula glomeruli, glomerular capsule Surrounds the glomerulus within the nephron with a vascular and urinary pole and is the beginning of the tubular component.

Named in after Sir William Bowman — an English surgeon and anatomist. Brenner hypothesis – a clinical hypothesis that states, individuals with a congenital reduction in nephron number have a much greater likelihood of developing adult hypertension and subsequent renal failure.

PubMed Barry Brenner capillary loop – C stage The third stage in nephron development between weeks. V – S – C – M diabetes insipidus – The disorder is related to the hormone antidiuretic hormone ADH, also called vasopressin its synthesis, secretion, receptors and signaling pathway.

This leads to a grossly dilated renal pelvis causing extensive renal damage before birth. Normally the majority of nephrogenic rests either regress or become dormant. Region also in close contact with the efferent and afferent arterioles of the glomerulus and involved in sodium chloride regulation.

V – S – C – M mesangial cells – Cells in the nephron glomerulus that form the connective tissue giving structural support to podocytes and vessels. The intermediate mesonephros develops and disappears with the exception of its duct, the mesonephric ductwhich will form the male reproductive duct system.


In males, the mesonephric tubules go on to form the ducts of the testis. In females, these degenerate. A few mesonephric tubules remain as efferent ductules in the male and vestigial remnants in the female. In females this duct degenerates some remnants may remain associated in broad ligament.

This is non-familial and is produced by atresia of a ureter and is always unilateral.

These neoplastic rests can develop postnatally as a benign form adenomatous rest or a malignant Wilm’s tumour form. The rests are further characterised by the time of generation leading to different anatomical kidney locations: The inner layer is the visceral layer.

Podocytes form the visceral layer of Bowman’s capsule and are at the filtration barrier between capillary blood and the nephron tubular system and function to ultrafiltrate blood, and support glomerular capillary pressures. The differentiation of podocytes involves the formation of cellular foot processes and then the slit membrane.

This forms the kidney of primitive fish and lower vertebrates. Kidney development occurs within the intermediate mesoderm interacting with endoderm. In humans, this very rudimentary kidney forms very early at the level of the neck.

It is rapidly replaced by the mesonephros, intermediate stage kidney, differentiating in mesoderm beneath.

V – S – C – M transitional epithelium – urothelium Histological term to describe the epithelium lining the ureters and urinary bladder. They develop from the ureteric bud and are lined by a transitional epithelium with an outer muscular wall. uistologi

In humans, the urethral length differs between the sexes male longer, female shorter. Cytoplasm form a fenestrated epithelium around the fenestrated capillaries of the glomerulus. The outer layer is the parietal layer. V – S – C – M urinary – Term used to describe all components of the kidney system including the bladder, ureters and urethra. Wt1 also required at early stages of gonadal development. Named after Caspar Friedrich Wolffa German scientist and early embryology researcher and is ruogenital to have established the doctrine of germ layers.
