Effect of molybdenum and copper on the nucleus of rat kidney

Effect of molybdenum and copper on the nucleus of rat kidney

Mikroskopie 42(3-4): 102-107

The present study reports on the alterations in the nucleus of renal parenchymal in albino rats fed on molybdenum and copper chronically. Since, a change in the morphology and chemistry of the nucleus is an expression of injury, increase in the nuclear volume seems to be the result of hydration of middle zone proteins. Histochemical observations on nucleic acids showed that molybdenum stimulated DNA and RNA reactions whereas copper inhibited only Feulgen reaction for DNA. Their combined treatment could be helpful in maintaining an optimal reaction for the nuclei acids. Specific reasons for these changes have also been discussed.
