Figure 3: Photomicrographs showing localization of cystatin C in kidneys by immunohistochemistry showing in: (a) Sham group: positive cystatin C immunostaining (arrow) involving the whole cytoplasm of the proximal tubular cells (T). (b) IRI group after 24 h: positive cystatin C immunostaining (arrow) involving only the apical portion of the proximal tubular cells. (c) Dexamethasone group after 24 h: apical localization of the positive immunostaining (arrow) as well as some reactions noted in the basal part of the cytoplasm (arrow head). (d) NAC group after 24 h: positive cystatin C immunostaining (arrow) involving the apical portion of the proximal tubular cells (T).
