Intravital two-photon microscopy was used to follow the uptake and trafficking of fluorescent conjugates of folic acid in the rat kidney. Intravenously administered folate-linked dye molecules quickly filled the plasma volume but not cellular components of the blood. Glomerular filtration occurred immediately and binding to proximal tubule cells was seen… CONTINUE READING
