We have characterized the junctions between endothelial cells of diverse blood vessels at the light and electron microscopic level using various antibodies to plakoglobin (polypeptide Mr 83,000) and vinculin. Endothelial cells from fenestrated and non-fenestrated capillaries to large arteries are connected to each other by extended junctions that are coated on their cytoplasmic face by plaques of loosely matted filamentous material that form a continuous belt system along the cell circumference… CONTINUE READING
