The presence of MSLCs can be detected within the pelvis wall and TLS of lupus-prone mice. MSLCs were detected by using antibodies against Nestin, Sca1, and PDGFRα and the cells were negative selected using antibodies against CD45. Kidney section from (a) anti-dsDNA Ab- (n = 3), (b) anti-dsDNA Ab+ (n = 3), and (c) proteinuric (n = 3) mice were analyzed by IHC. Scale Bar 20 μm. Magnification (ac) 20X with digital zoom for magnified panels. (A: artery, Ab: anti-dsDNA antibody, G: Glomeruli, H: Hilum, PW: pelvic wall, T: tubule, US: urinary space, V: vein).
