The kidneys remove wastes and extra fluid from the blood and maintain a healthy balance of water, salts and minerals in the body. These movies demonstrate the basic anatomy of the kidneys in the mouse and, with the application of immunomarkers like nephrin and aquaporin 2, show the three-dimensional structure of nephron, the major microscopic structural and functional unit of the kidney.
