Seeing is believing, even if what you want to see is actually unseeable. My last post has reminded me of Kenton Arkill’s wonderful 3-D reconstruction of a rat peritubular capillary’s glycocalyx. Take a stereoscopic look;
Sad to say, I can’t see it; my eyes adapt near rather than far, so I only see pissholes in the snow. If you can see Magic Eye, tell me what you think.
Also love his 2-D Figure Three which is a rabbit choroid capillary; choroid capillaries obviously need to shift plenty of fluid and are fenestrated accordingly. You can see very clearly the adjacent junctioned endothelial cells and a fenestration, all coated with glycocalyx.
Kenton is also contributing to Farag & Kurz’ textbook, can’t wait to see new images;
