Adult Rat Kidney Collecting Duct Principal Cell HIM

The apical surface of a collecting duct principal cell showing long cilium and short microvilli.

Collecting duct principal cells mediate the collecting duct's influence on sodium and potassium balance through sodium and potassium channels located on the cell's apical membrane.

A new technique called Helium Ion Microscopy (HIM) gives similar high resolution 3D images, using a scanning beam of He+ ions, and fixed tissue without the coating required for SEM.

Bar = 500 nm
