From: Icariin protects rats against 5/6 nephrectomy-induced chronic kidney failure by increasing the number of renal stem cells

Fig. 6

Icariin increased the numbers of CD133+ and CD24+ renal stem/progenitor cells. The numbers of CD133+ (a) and CD24+ (b) cells in rat kidney were semi-quantitatively measured by immunohistochemical staining with specific antibodies against CD133 and CD24. Representative pictures and the quantitative summaries were given. *, p < 0.01 compared to sham group; #, p < 0.01 compared to CKD model group
