Fine structure of frozen-etched tight junctions


Tight junctions or zonulae occludestes have been demonst ra ted in numerous epithelial tissues [t, 2]. They form the outermos t component of the junct ional complex between adjacent epitheliM cells and seem to be continuous around each cell. In sections of chemically fixed cells, the t ight junctions appear as regions where the intercelIular space… (More)
