Two cell-types of toad bladder epithelium show uncommon plasma membrane organization in freeze-fractured specimens. One type, the granular cell, contains a plasma membrane in which the A-face is poorly particulate luminally while the B-face discloses multiple large particles at this site. In contrast, the lateral and basal portions of the granular-cell… CONTINUE READING
