Figure 1. A) A schematic image of X. laevis nephron. PT: proximal tubule; IT: intermediate tubule; DT: distal tubule; CT: connecting tubule. Magenta arrows: PT; green arrows: IT; orange arrows: DT. (B) Representative regeneration pattern of partially resected proximal tubules. Proximal tubules regenerate a coiled structure. (C) Regeneration pattern of completely resected proximal tubules. The remaining intermediate tubules extend, but no coiled structure is regenerated. (D) Regeneration pattern of completely resected intermediate tubules. No extension of tubules is observed. (E) Statistics of the regeneration pattern. The statistics of three independent experiments are summarized.
