Electron Micrograph of Desmosomes Between Adjacent Epithelial Cells In the Kidney
Image ID: 12963
EM of desmosomes between adjacent epithelial cells in the kidney. Dense cytoplasmic plaques on both sides of each junction correspond to accumulated intermediate filaments. An electron-dense line extends along the center of the intercellular space of the desmosomes. Mitochondria (Mi) are also in the cytoplasm. 40,000×. (Courtesy of Dr. W. A. Webber)
