Further observations on the morphological alterations of the glomerular capillary wall of the rat kidney caused by chemical and physical agents: standard procedures versus quick-freezing and freeze-substitution

The purpose of the present study was to pin-point which of the various preparatory steps required by different histological procedures (conventional, cryosubstitution, freezing followed by cryosubstitution or replication) induces alterations in the fine structure of the endothelial and epithelial surface coat (SC) and of the interposed glomerular basement… CONTINUE READING
