Endothelial fenestral diaphragms: a quick-freeze, deep-etch study


The route by which water, solutes, and macromolecules traverse the endothelial cell has long been a subject of study for both physiologists and cell biologists. Recent physiologic studies describe a slit-shaped pore (5.1-5.7-nm wide) as the communicating channel, although no channel of such dimensions has been visible in electron microscopic preparations… (More)
