TLS contain germinal centers (GCs) with FDC network and B cells. Kidney sections from (a) anti-dsDNA Ab+ mice (n = 10), (c) proteinuric (n = 10) mice, and (d) BALB/c mice (n = 10) were analyzed for the presence of B cells, T cells, and FDCs using antibodies against B220, CD3, and CD21 respectively, and DAPI to visualize the nucleus. TLS comprising (a,b) GCs with FDCs supporting networks and distinct T cell zone. Magnification (ac) 20X. Scale Bar 20 μm.
