Details and Methods
Blattmann, Annette et al., The formation of pores in the basal lamina of
regenerated renal tubules Biomaterials (2008)
In this assay they looked at the basal aspects of renal tubules generated at the Interphase of an artificial interstitium in order to gain more knowledge about the generation of renal tubules. They took progenitor cells from neonatal rabbit kidney and put them inside a specific tissue holder that was covered by polyester fleece. They found tissue-specific antibodies that showed that the tubes were completely covered by a basal lamina. The matrix that was formed had three categories of pores which were widely distributed. The pores were also found in collections of duct tubules of the neonatal rabbit kidney.
