Formation of the blood‐urine permeability barrier in differentiating mouse transitional urothelium was studied. It was established that the development of superficial cell barrier is a two‐phase process: beginning with formation of the tight junctions, followed by formation of fusiform vesicles and asymmetric apical plasma membranes. Fusiform vesicles differentiate during days 15 and 17 of gestation and fuse with the apical plasmalemma. Thus a thick membrane is formed before the excretion of… Expand
Formation and maintenance of blood–urine barrier in urothelium
TLDR
Recent discoveries on the role of tight junctions, dynamics of Golgi apparatus and post-Golgi compartments, and intracellular membrane traffic during the biogenesis and maintenance of blood–urine barrier are discussed. Expand
THE DISTINCT STEPS OF CELL DETACHMENT DURING DEVELOPMENT OF MOUSE UROEPITHELIAL CELLS IN THE BLADDER
TLDR
Observations demonstrate the existence of specific steps during the detachment of embryonic uroepithelial cells during embryonic development and first urine accumulation in bladder lumen, superficial and intermediate cell layers. Expand
A Comparative Ontogenic Study of Urinary Bladder: Impact of the Epithelial Differentiation in Embryonic and Newborn Rats
TLDR
The present study aimed to show the cellular and subcellular distribution of glycogen content during the differentiation of urothelial cells from simple cuboidal to stratified transitional epithelium in rat embryos and newborn at 21st day. Expand
Postnatal restoration of the mouse urinary bladder urothelium
TLDR
Urothelial proliferation was high from birth until about the 14th postnatal day and apoptosis is present in the first 9 postnatal days and within a few days of this period it appears simultaneously with desquamation, which is reflected in the changeable morphology of the apical plasma membrane.

Umbrella Cell — Surface Specialisations
The wall of the urinary passages including the surfaces of the renal pelvis, the ureters, the urinary bladder, and proximal parts of the urethra is covered by a unique specialised epithelium, theExpand
Autophagic activity in the mouse urinary bladder urothelium as a response to starvation
TLDR
It is concluded that autophagy, despite low basic activity under physiological conditions, plays an important role in urothelial homeostasis and stability under stress. Expand
Actin filaments during terminal differentiation of urothelial cells in the rat urinary bladder
TLDR
It is indicated that in the urothelium subcellular distribution of actin filaments can be considered as a marker of cell differentiation, which accompanied regeneration after cell damage induced by cyclophosphamide. Expand
Identifikation von SNARE-Proteinen im Urothel der Ratte
The luminal surface of the bladder epitehlium is continuously exposed to the urine that differs in ionic composition and osmolarlity from blodd. The apical plasma membrane of facet cells, facing theExpand
Desquamation of urinary bladder epithelial cells
TLDR
Moderate stress in mouse female adults induced by constant illumination for 96 hours results in desquamation of superficial and intermediate cells and the involvement of specific adhesion mechanisms during detachment and desquamination of uroepithelial cells is demonstrated. Expand
Expression of coxsackievirus and adenovirus receptor isoforms in developing mouse bladder uroepithelium.
TLDR
CAR at the apical tight junctions and cellular adhesions between the uroepithelial cells and the interfaces between the basal cells and basal lamina might support the paracellular permeability barrier and structural integrity of the u roepithelium in the mouse bladder. Expand

SUMMARY.— Both the transitional epithelium of the mammalian urinary bladder and the epidermis of skin are specialized to prevent loss of endogenous water. Under abnormal circumstances, the bladderExpand
THE PERMEABILITY OF RAT TRANSITIONAL EPITHELIUM: Keratinization and the Barrier to Water
TLDR
It is proposed that the cells lining the urinary bladder and ureters should be regarded as a keratinizing epitheluim and it is suggested that keratin may be incorporated in the thick barrier membrane. Expand

The study demonstrated that the fetal and neonatal mouse and rat urinary bladders undergo a series of rapid developmental changes and suggest that the maternal urinary bladder may be a target organ susceptible to toxic insult. Expand

Evidence is presented to show that this permeability barrier passively depends on the structure of the unusual, thick, rigid membrane which limits the urinary surface of the epithelial cells. Expand

TLDR
The results obtained with bladder luminal membrane plaques emphasise that caution should be exercised in the interpretation of a negative response to filipin, particularly in membrane domains containing closely packed protein subunits. Expand
Analysis of the structure of intramembrane particles of the mammalian urinary bladder

The luminal and discoid vacuole membranes of the superficial cell layer of the transitional epithelium of the mammalian urinary bladder have been studied and it is concluded that the globular particles do not exist in the native membrane but arise artifactually during the preparatory procedures.

TLDR
It is suggested that at least one function of particles is to serve as anchoring sites for cytoplasmic filaments, which limit the expansion of the lumenal membrane during distention of the bladder, thereby preventing it from rupturing. Expand
FRACTURE FACES OF ZONULAE OCCLUDENTES FROM "TIGHT" AND "LEAKY" EPITHELIA
TLDR
Epithelia of intermediate permeabilities exhibited junctions with intermediate or variable morphology, finding that the zonula occludens from a "very leaky" epithelium, the proximal convoluted tubule of the mouse kidney, is extremely shallow in the apical-basal direction, and consists of five or more interconnected junctional strands interposed between luminal and lateral membrane surfaces.
