As a result he now has two abnormal polycyclic genes. Polycyclic genes act as receptors for extracurricular growth.

Cystic lesion has formed in Mr.. Newsman’s kidney.

Cyst forms “hen cells in any region of the neoprene divide rapidly. Proximal tubule cells have divided. Dilated segment fill with globular filtrate. The dilated segments grow until it eventually separates from the neoprene; after it separates the cyst forms. A cyst has formed and it continues to grow.

Cysts begin to secrete calcium and chloride ions into the lumen. Mr.. Newsman’s kidney weighs 4 kilograms. It has multiple cysts of ‘airing size and shapes
