Image of amyloid in the kidney from a female B6C3F1 mouse in a chronic study
Kidney, Glomerulus - Amyloid in a female B6C3F1 mouse from a chronic study. Glomeruli contain a pale, amorphous, eosinophilic material identified as amyloid.

Kidney, Glomerulus - Amyloid in a B6C3F1 mouse from a chronic study (same mouse as in Figure 3). Congo red staining with polarization of amyloid deposits shows the characteristic apple-green birefringence.

Kidney, Glomerulus - Amyloid in a B6C3F1 mouse from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 4). Congo red staining with polarization shows the characteristic apple-green birefringence of amyloid deposits.
