Prepared microscope slide. Chordata: Amphibian kidney (frog) sec. Phylum: Chordata; Class: Amphibia
The kidney is a part of the urogenital system of the frog.
In a general discussion of kidneys (not specifically amphibian) this VIEW of the cortex of a kidney shows labelled glomeruli, macula densa, mesangial cells, capillaries, proximal tubules, the parietal blade of Bowman's capsule, as well as the vascular pole, urinary pole, podocytes, capsular space, and distal tubules. There are a number of images on the page. This particular one is the first one under the discussion of the urinary system. By clicking on the image, it will switch between labels. The web page is from the University of Western Australia.
These prepared slides are of very high quality produced in the U.S. by Lee Gonzales, a licensed histologist. The attached image is of the slide being offered, at 400x.
