Kidney Cells that secrete erythropoietin

It's confusing for me to determine which cells secrete erythropoietin?
Kaplan Lecture Note of histology says it is secreted by mesangial cells, however UW says it is secreted by peritubular capillary cells.
Any one who knows the exact answer is requested to answer it along with the source they are referencing from.

Once again UW is better than Kaplan

hi there

me again. both the books are right! the mesangial cells are located at the peritubular. try looking for interesting pictures online. u can see how when the mesangial cells swell up, it causes a blockage of the tubules and the GFR decreases. u need a clear cartoon image to picture this easy.

This is not against what's said above. I think peritubular capillaries might be in the cortex.

It's the interstitial cells of peritubular capillaries
