Adrenal Gland, Cortex, X-Zone - Atrophy - Gallery

Image of atrophy in the adrenal gland cortex x-zone from a female B6C3F1/N mouse in a subchronic study
Adrenal gland, Cortex, X-zone - Normal in a female B6C3F1/N mouse from a subchronic study. Adrenal gland with moderate numbers of vacuolated cells in an age-matched control virgin female is shown for comparison with Figure 3. M = medulla, XZ = X-zone, ZF = zona fasciculata.

Adrenal gland, Cortex, X-zone - Normal in a female B6C3F1/N mouse from a subchronic study (higher magnification of Figure 1). Adrenal gland in an age-matched control virgin female is shown for comparison with Figure 4. M = medulla; XZ = X-zone.
Image of atrophy in the adrenal gland cortex x-zone from a female B6C3F1/N mouse in a subchronic study
Adrenal gland, Cortex, X-zone - Atrophy in a virgin female B6C3F1/N mouse from a subchronic study. There is acceleration of X-zone (XZ) regression characterized by narrowing of the X-zone compared with Figure 1. M = medulla, ZF = zona fasciculata.

Adrenal gland, Cortex, X-zone - Atrophy in a virgin female B6C3F1/N mouse from a subchronic study (higher magnification of Figure 3). There is increased degeneration and necrosis of the X-zone (XZ) cells compared with Figure 2.
