Figure 1: MCs growing as monolayers. Glomerulopathic LCs induce MC apoptosis demonstrated by caspase 3 staining (A) and phase contrast microscopy (B) at 28 hours post initial incubation with LCs. A-X400; B-X250- Immunohistochemistry for caspase 3 in 6D live cell platform MCs incubated with MCs and tested for caspase 3 activity (magic red) showing intracytoplasmic staining indicative of activation of apoptotic pathway. B. MCs releasing apoptotic bodies (circles).
