T and B cell are accumulating within the pelvic wall during the formation of TLS. Kidney sections from (a) young anti-dsDNA Ab- mice (n = 24), (b) anti-dsDNA Ab+ (n = 27), and (c) proteinuric (n = 27) mice were analyzed for the presence of T and B cells using antibodies against CD3 and B220, respectively. Total RNA was isolated from NZB/W mice at different ages. (A: artery, Ab: anti-dsDNA antibody, G: Glomeruli, H: Hilum, PW: pelvic wall, T: tubule, US: urinary space, V: vein).
