Mesangial fenestrations, sieving, filtration, and flow.


Small tracers in the circulation enter the rat mesangium rapidly and in large amounts that indicate a sizable plasma flow into the mesangium. Entrance is effected through mesangial fenestrations with a mean width in scanning electron microscopy of 376 A, a size similar to fenestrations in peripheral glomerular capillary walls. This is considerably smaller… (More)
