Renal injury. Proximal tubular injury was assessed by staining for proximal tubular brush border for ACE (a-c, 200), interstitial inflammation was determined by staining for F4/80 positive macrophages (d-f, 400×), and interstitial fibrosis by staining for type III collagen (g-i, 200). Heat stress was associated with loss of proximal tubular brush border, interstitial inflammation and interstitial fibrosis which tended to be worse with fructose rehydration. Scale bar 50 μm. Statistical analysis was performed using ANOVA with Bonferroni correction for individual comparisons. Key: *, p < 0.05; **, p < 0.01; ***p < 0.001, ****, p < 0.0001
