The glomeruli of rats rendered nephrotic by administration of aminonucleoside of puromycin were studied with the freeze-fracture technique. The alterations of the podocytes consisted of a progressive blunting of the foot processes and of the disappearance of the extracellular space normally present between the foot processes at the level of the slit pore. In parallel with the closure of the extracellular space, fracture faces of the plasma membrane of the latered podocytes revealed the presence… CONTINUE READING
