The cell membranes and cell junctions of the rectal chloride epithelia of the larval dragonfly Aeshna cyanea were examined in thin sections and by freeze-fracture. These epithelia function in active ion absorption and maintain a high concentration gradient between the haemolymph and the fresh-water environment. Freeze-fracturing reveals fine-structural differences in the intramembraneous particles of the luminal and contraluminal plasma membranes of these epithelia, reflecting the functional… Expand
