The detailed anatomy of the structures forming the glomerular filtration barrier and the proximal tubule was studied during postnatal development of the pig kidney. Development of the glomerular filtration barrier included three processes: Formation of visceral epithelial foot processes, flattening and fenestration of the endothelium and formation of a common epithelial and endothelial basal lamina. During formation of foot processes the distribution pattern of aggregated filaments in the… CONTINUE READING
