The epithelia of a number of glands and cavitary organs of the rat and guinea pig have been surveyed, and in all cases investigated, a characteristic tripartite junctional complex has been found between adjacent cells. [...] Key Result The desmosome or macula adhaerens is also characterized by the presence of an intercellular space ( approximately 240 A) which, in this case, contains a central disc of dense material; by discrete cytoplasmic plaques disposed parallel to the inner leaflet of each cell membrane…Expand
Diverse types of junctions containing tight junction proteins in stratified mammalian epithelia
  • W. Franke, U. Pape
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 2012
TLDR
Biological and pathological aspects of TJ‐related structures in such tissues are discussed, including tissues without a lumen, and tumors derived from such epithelia, notably squamous cell carcinomas. Expand
Tight junctions and compositionally related junctional structures in mammalian stratified epithelia and cell cultures derived therefrom.
TLDR
An unexpected diversity of TJ-related structures is found of which only those showing colocalization with the most restricted transmembrane TJ marker protein, occludin, are presented here. Expand
THE FINE STRUCTURE OF THE TRANSITIONAL EPITHELIUM OF RAT URETER
  • R. M. Hicks
  • Medicine, Biology
  • The Journal of cell biology
  • 1965
TLDR
Arguments are presented to support a suggestion that this thick plasma membrane of rat ureter is the morphological site of a passive permeability barrier to water flow across the cells, and that keratin may be included in the membrane structure. Expand
Ultrastructure of transitional epithelium of man
  • B. Monis, D. Zambrano
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Zeitschrift für Zellforschung und Mikroskopische Anatomie
  • 2004
TLDR
The ultrast structure and histochemistry of the mucous fluffy coat of man transitional epithelium and the ultrastructure of preparations of the Tamm and Horsfall mucoprotein are bases for suggesting that transitional epithelialium of urinary tract of man is the site of biosynthesis of certain urinary mucoids. Expand
THE CELL JUNCTION IN A LAMELLIBRANCH GILL CILIATED EPITHELIUM
TLDR
Electro microscopy of the gill epithelium of the freshwater mussel reveals deposits of electron-opaque precipitate, which suggests the rarity or absence of either vertebrate-type gap or tight junctions along the entire cell border, and regional differentiation of cell membranes with respect to their ability to precipitate pyroantimonate. Expand
The ultrastructure of the epithelium of the ciliary body
TLDR
The study of the modifications of the junctional apparatus of the ciliary epithelium following paracentesis of the anterior chamber confirms the functional hypotheses on junctional complexes previously suggested: in particular only zonulae occludentes cause a real block of the intercellular spaces. Expand
CELL JUNCTIONS IN AMPHIBIAN SKIN
TLDR
Interpreted in the light of current physiological data, these findings suggest that the diffusion of water, ions, and small, water-soluble molecules is impeded along the intercellular spaces of the epidermis by zonulae occludentes while it is facilitated from cell to cell within the epidesis by z onulae and maculae OccludENTes.

Functional Morphology of the Intestinal Mucosae: From Crypts to Tips
TLDR
To evaluate the potential of myosin oligopeptide as a therapeutic agent, it was applied to cultured cell monolayers after infection with enteropathogenic E. coli but before transepithelial electrical resistance fell, and may lead to the development of a novel class of therapeutic agents that restore intestinal barrier function following noncytolytic epithelial injury.

Complexus adhaerentes, a new group of desmoplakin-containing junctions in endothelial cells: II. Different types of lymphatic vessels.
TLDR
Possible functional reasons for the formation and maintenance of complexus adhaerentes are discussed as well as the potential value of reagents which allow their identification in relation to physiology and pathology. Expand
Ultrastructural differentiation of the junctional complex of the avian choroidal epithelium
The junctional complex of the choroidal epithelium of the adult domestic fowl consists of three characteristic components—the zonula occludens, zonula adherens and macula adherens. TheExpand

STRUCTURE OF THE TOAD'S URINARY BLADDER AS RELATED TO ITS PHYSIOLOGY
TLDR
The structure of the urinary bladder of the toad Bufo marinus was studied by light and electron microscopy and it was demonstrated in in vitro experiments that water traversing the bladder wall passes through the cytoplasm of the epithelial cells and that a vesicle transport mechanism is not involved. Expand
An electron microscopic study of the intestinal villus. I. The fasting animal.
TLDR
The structure of the intestinal villus of the rat was studied in thin sections of tissue fixed in buffered osmium tetroxide and embedded in methacrylate to identify the endothelium and blood capillaries distinguished by their extremely attenuated, fenestrated endothelial cells. Expand
Studies on the endoplasmic reticulum. I. Its identification in cells in situ.
TLDR
It was found that an endoplasmic reticulum similar to that previously described in cultured material is present in situ in all cell types examined and modified in its appearance introduced by the sectioning technique. Expand
ELECTRON MICROSCOPE STUDIES OF THE STRUCTURE OF THE MICROVILLI ON PRINCIPAL EPITHELIAL CELLS OF RAT JEJUNUM AFTER TREATMENT IN HYPO- AND HYPERTONIC SALINE
TLDR
Densitometer traces across the microvillus membrane at various stages of modification indicated that this membrane might include a 75 A unit membrane structure with additional components associated at either surface, which might possibly be distinguished from preparative artefacts. Expand

  • R. L. Wood

TLDR
It is suggested that septate desmosomes in Hydra form barriers to the movement of water into intercellular spaces and thus help to protect the organism's internal environment. Expand

TLDR
It has been demonstrated that the fenestrations of the thin endothelium of the smallest capillaries are invariably closed by a diaphragm with a thickness identical to the plasma membrane of the endothelial cell. Expand

The formation of protein absorption droplets in the cells of the proximal convolution was studied in mouse kidney and it was suggested that phospholipids enter into the vacuoles together with hemoglobin from the tubular lumen and form membrane systems of lipoproteins in the droplets. Expand
