Renal epithelial polarity in health and disease


 Epithelial cells mediate the unidirectional movement of selective compounds from one biological compartment to another. This is accomplished by having biochemically, structurally, and functionally distinctive apical and basolateral surface membrane domains separated by the cells’ junctional complex. Derangement of this highly ordered situation can result… (More)
