F-actin fiber distribution in glomerular cells: structural and functional implications.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Glomerular distention is associated with cellular mechanical strain. In addition, glomerular distention/contraction is assumed to influence the filtration rate through changes in filtration surface area. A contractile cytoskeleton in podocytes and mesangial cells, formed by F-actin-containing stress fibers, maintains structural integrity and… (More)
