Renal Failure Treatment Cell Engraftment

Caption: In work by Jesus Dominguez, M.D., and Katherine Kelly, M.D., of Indiana University School of Medicine, this microscopic image demonstrates that modified cells infused to treat renal failure in rats have engrafted into the kidney. The engrafted cells have been tagged with green fluorescence, and all nuclei are labeled with a blue fluorescing dye to show the tissue architecture.
