Male Rat Specific Alpha2uGlobulin Nephropathy and Renal Tumourigenesis
Weinbren [see 1] characterised spontaneously occurring hyaline droplets in the otherwise normal mature male rat kidney. The ultrastructural characteristics of the spontaneous PCT hyaline body was characterised by Maunsbach as a phagolysosomal protein reabsorption droplet and defined as a male rat specific increased size and propensity for crystalloid change in comparison to the female rat or higher species, including humans .
