Our article entitled "Mapping the cytoskeletal architecture of renal tubules and surrounding peritubular capillaries in the kidney" has been published in Cytoskeleton.

In this study, we show that the entire architecture of kidney sections (produced by stitching together >1000 images in tile-scan mode) can be visualized without gaps using two markers: fluorescent F-actin binding phalloidin for the visualization of renal tubules and endothelia-specific CD34 to identify capillaries.

March 31, 2022 - Top Cited Article

I received a notice from Wiley Press that our paper published in Molecular Reproduction and Development is a Top Cited Article for 2020-2021 (Citation data from Clarivate).
Congratulations to my Ph.D. students, Sachin Sharma and Girish Kumaran.
