Podocyte, a terminal differentiated cell, outgrew from glomeruli and proliferated in the culture dish at day 6 after removal of glomeruli. Podocyte was double stained with fluorescence-labeled anti-Ki-67 (green) and rhodamine-conjugated phalloidin (red), respectively. The former showed that podocyte was in an active proliferation phase of cell cycle in the nuclei, and the latter showed the specific foot processing cytoskeleton formed in the differentiated cell.
