The distribution of filamentous actin bundles in the rat kidney was studied using a fluorescent phallotoxin label and transmission electron microscopy. The microvillous brush border lining proximal tubules, smooth muscle in renal vessels, and renal corpuscles were the structures most intensely labeled with rhodamine phalloidin. Closer evaluation of renal corpuscles revealed intense labeling of filamentous actin within podocyte foot processes enveloping the glomerular capillary loops. Rhodamine… CONTINUE READING
