Photomicrographs of PAS-stained kidney sections showing the normal PAS positivity in the glomeruli and the brush border of kidney tubules in the control group (a). Acrylamide-administrated groups at 30, 45, and 60 days (bd) showed elevation of carbohydrates in the glomeruli and kidney tubules. Chips feeding group at 30 and 45 days (e, f) did not display any change as compared with the control group. At 60 days (g) showed the increase in the carbohydrate contents of the glomeruli and tubules as compared to the control group. BV-treated group (h) and BPF-treated group (i) at 60 days of treatment showed a similarity with the control group. Acrylamide-administrated groups treated with either bee venom (j) or BPF (k) showing improvement of carbohydrate contents. Chips feeding groups treated with either bee venom (l) or BPF (m) showing improvement of carbohydrate contents as compared to chips feeding groups. PAS staining scale bar 10 μm
