The kidney is the main site of erythropoietin (EPO) formation. Oxygen sensing in the kidney itself plays a major role in the control of EPO synthesis. By in situ hybridization it has been established that the EPO-producing cells are situated in the interstitium of the cortical labyrinth, but they have not been precisely identified. Morphological findings provide new insights into the location and ...
