Fibrillar and cytoskeletal substructure of tight junctions: Analysis of single-stranded tight junctions linking fibroblasts of the lamina fusca in hamster eyes


The lamina fusca of the hamster eye contains layers of flattened, slightly overlapping fibroblasts. Thin sections of the overlapping margins reveal punctate, tight-junction-like membrane appositions associated with accumulation of cytoplasmic filaments, 5–7 nm in diameter. Intermediate filaments are present in the surrounding cytoplasm. A diffuse dense… (More)
