Gap junctions and zonulae occludentes of hepatocytes during biliary atresia in the lamprey.

Abstract

Gap junctions and zonulae occludentes of hepatocytes were examined in thin sections and freeze-fracture replicas from livers of larval and juvenile adult lampreys and during the phase of metamorphosis when bile ducts and bile canaliculi disappear (biliary atresia). Larvae possess zonulae occludentes at the canaliculi which are composed of one to five (mean… (More)
