Macula Densa Basement Membrane

Macula Densa Basement Membrane, eyeSCANdy, arkana laboratories
Today’s eyeSCANdy image shows the macula densa basement membrane. The macula densa basement membrane contains multiple slender tunnels where the macula dense epithelium sends cell processes that may also provide tethering as the vascular pole arterioles contract and relax.
