This review describes properties and occurrence of the so-called orthogonal arrays of intramembranous particles (OAPs). These peculiar components of membranes were described in astrocytes, intestinal cells, kidney collecting tubule cells, lens fiber cells, muscle cells and a number of other cell types in vertebrates. They are shown only by means of the freeze-fracture technique and are not understood functionally at present. They are suggested to play a role in ionic transport processes. They… CONTINUE READING
