  • The podocytes of ten frog species with different habitat preference were investigated by scanning electron microscopy. The visceral epithelium within these species shows considerable variation in the branching mode of the cellular processes, in the number of pedicels and in the form of cell bodies. The presence of various podocyte cell forms within anurans of one family (e.g. within Ranidae and Discoglossidae) indicates that podocytic structure is not manifested phylogenetically. The complexity… CONTINUE READING
