In most cell types, distinct forms of intercellular junctions have been visualized at the ultrastructural level. Among these, the septate junctions are thought to seal the neighboring cells and thus to function as the paracellular barriers. The most extensively studied form of septate junctions, referred to as the pleated septate junctions, is ultrastructurally distinct with an electron-dense ladder-like arrangement of transverse septa present in invertebrates as well as vertebrates.
