The fine structural development of rat fetal liver sinusoids from 10 to 22 days gestation was studied. Colloidal carbon (Pelikan ink) was injected into 14-22 day gestation fetuses via the umbilical vein to assess the continuity of the sinusoidal lining and the phagocytic ability of the developing lining cells. Endothelial cells, devoid of an underlying basal lamina, form the bulk of the vascular lining at all gestational ages. These cells possess typical intercellular junctions and fenestrae… CONTINUE READING
