     Endocrine Portion
       Islets of Langerhans – endocrine portion; round cell clusters
     How to differentiate pancreas from parotid gland
       Alveoli are more clearly divided in parotid
       There are numerous intralobular striated ducts in the parotid
       The pancreas has islets of langerhans
       The pancreas contains centroacinar cells
 Urinary System
 ○ Objectives
    Identify the organs of the urinary system and relate their functions to their morphology.
    Relate the structural and functional differences between unilobar versus multi-lobar and multilobular kidneys.
    Identify the different components of the nephron and the different types of nephrons. Relate the different structures and their
     components to their specific function.
    Trace a RBC through the kidney circulation and relate the structure of the different vessels to their function of the kidney.
    Identify the structures making up the blood-urine filtration barrier.
    Relate the formation of urine to the various structures found in the kidney.
    Trace the path of urine from its formation to its release from the body.
 ○ Note – lower mammals have a unilobar and multilobular kidney (thus no renal columns or minor calyces)
 ○ Note – human kidney is multilobar and multilobular
 ○ Kidney
    Low Magnification
      Capsule – dense irregular CT; areolar and adipose tissue may be present outside capsule
      Cortex – darker staining
        ○ Cortical Labyrinth – dark staining with convoluted tubules and renal corpuscles
             Renal Corpuscles – small round islands of densly stained material and clear space around it
          Convoluted Tubules – coiled tubules have thicker walls and stain darker
          Identify cortical vs juxtamedullary nephrons based on location
      ○ Medullary Rays – lighter staining medullary material extending into cortex
          Contain straight portions of cortical nephrons and some collecting ducts
          Have thin walls and reduced cytoplasm and are thus lighter staining
     Medulla – lighter staining and extend into cortex
      ○ renal columns (although no renal columns can be seen because they don‟t exist in smaller mammals
         and aren‟t on the human slide)
      ○ Renal Pyramids – thin walled tubules and straight portions of nephrons and collecting ducts
      ○ Renal Papilla – where they drain tino calyces
     Renal Lobe – renal pyramid and overlying cortex
     Renal Lobule/Cortical Lobule – area of cortex in the cortex containing a medullary ray and associated
      labyrinth material
      ○ Thus area between two medullary rays is a renal lobule
     Major and Minor Calyces and Renal Pelvis – kinda hard to see on slides

 Nephron
   Bowman’s Capsule – round island with gap around it
    ○ Parietal Layer of Bowman’s Capsule – layer of simple squamous epithelium around periphery
    ○ Bowman’s Space –
    ○ Visceral Layer of Bowman’s Capsule - only seen at EM level
         Have Podocytes that surround endothelial cells of capillaries
    ○ Glomerulus – tuft of coild capillaries
    ○ Mesangial Cells – tough to find
    ○ Vascular Pole – where the glomerulus fuses to the side of the renal corpuscle
         afferent and efferent arterioles (indistinguishable) connect here
    ○ Urinary Pole – opposite end where the proximal convoluted tubule originates
    ○ Note – look for RBCs and the proximal convoluted tubule when distinguishing the poles
   Proximal Convoluted Tubules – small indistinct lumen
    ○ Single layer of tall cuboidal epithelial cells that stain red
    ○ Brush border (microvilli) makes the lumen indistinct – diagnostic
    ○ Basal Striations – infoldings of plasmalemma associated with mitochondria to increase active transport
         Mitochondria require different darker staining? And the basal striations are just clumps of mitochond.
   Distal Convoluted Tubules - large distinct lumen but same size tubule (thinner tubule wall)
    ○ low cuboidal epithelium
    ○ Luminal surface is more distinct (no brush border)
    ○ Basal striations are less distinct
   Juxtaglomerular Apparatus – where distal convoluted tuble touches renal corpuscle
    ○ Macula Densa – part of DCT that touches the glomerulus
         nuclei of tubule are tightly packed together in straight line
    ○ Juxtaglomerular Cells – part of afferent arteriole
         dense mass of tightly packed small nuclei
    ○ Extraglomerular Mesangial Cells – difficult to distinguish from JG cells
 Cortico-Medullary Junction
       Arcuate Arteries (muscular) and Arcuate Veins (medium sized) – run along the long, horizontal part of
         renal pyramid (marks junction of medulla and cortex)
         ○ Not in between two medulallary rays
       Interlobular arterties and veins – give off afferent arterioles and are perpendicular to arcuates and in the
         ○ In between two medullary rays
    Medulla
       Arrangement
         ○ Outer Medulla – contains thick and thin segments, collecting ducts and vasa rectae
         ○ Inner Medulla – contains lots of thick sements (no thick segments) and lots of collecting ducts. Also
            contains vasa rectae and loops of Henle
       Thick Segment of Loop of Henle – descending segment is more similar to PCT and ascending segment is
         more similar to DCT
         ○ Kind of hard to differentiate, but in general are more oval and cell borders are more distinct
       Thin Segment of Loop of Henle – narrow channel lined by simple squamous epithelium
         ○ In between collecting ducts and thick segments
       Vasa Rectae – very similar to thin segments, except they have RBCs in lumen
       Collecting Ducts – a little larger than the thick segment.
         ○ Epithelium goes from low cuboidal to tall cuboidal as you get towards papillary ducts
         ○ Duct of Bellini – round nuclei and a little lighter staining
         ○ Diagnostic – can see distinct cell borders between adjacent cells of the duct
       Area Cribrosa – looks like a sieve on tip of a papilla
       Calyces – various epithelia
 ○ Ureter
    Diagnostic - start shaped lumen with transitional epithelium
    Lamina propria merges into submucosa, because there is no muscularis mucosa
    Muscularis layer contains inner longitudinal and outer circular layers (opposite normal)
       Near the bladder an outer longitudinal layer is added
    Tunica adventia also present
    All layers except epithelium will have some nerves and BVs
 ○ Urinary Bladder
    Nondistended
       Nondistended Transitional Epithelium – 6-8 layers and large dome-shaped cells on free surface covering
         multiple cells underneath
         ○ Thinner than stratified squamous epithelium
       No muscularis mucosae
       Muscularis layer has inner longitudinal, middle circular and outer longitudinal but are indistinguishable
       Tunica adventitia has adipocytes, BVs and nerves
    Disteneded
       Distended Transitional Epithelium – 3-5 layers thick, with surface cells more stretched out
       Inner muscular layer looks circular
       Everything just looks thinner
 ○ Urethra
    Female
       Epithelium - Crescent shaped lumen
         ○ From bladder to end it transitions from – transitional → pseudostratified columnar → stratified
            squamous mucosal
       Muscularis
         ○ Inner longitudinal and outer circular smooth muscle, with skeletal muscle forming external sphincter
            near orifice
