Antibodies against liver-kidney microsomes type 1 (anti-LKM-1) react to the proximal tubules of the rat kidney. The absence of reactivity against thedistal tubules of the rat kidney (see also Fig. 6B) and parietal cells of the rat stomach distinguishes anti-LKM-1 autoantibodies from antimitochondrial antibodies (original magnification 40×).
