Morphological studies using immersion or perfusion fixation methods do not reveal the ultrastructure of functioning kidneys with normal circulation. A simple apparatus was developed for freezing the kidneys in vivo without stopping the blood supply, and the ultrastructure of the glomerular capillary loops was examined under different haemodynamic conditions. Mouse kidneys were frozen under normal blood flow conditions; others were frozen in the same way after ligation of the abdominal aorta at… CONTINUE READING
