Reconstruction
Display image description
Control transmission electron microscopic overview of a glomerular section. In contrast to the glomerular section after infusion with hyaluronidase, no endogenous albumin was found bound to the surface of podocytes, foot processes, or parietal epithelial cells. The sample has been imaged at 1.2 nm pixel-1. resolution over an area of 144 x 134 ┬Ám2.

Specimen preparation
Protocol used
Kidney tissue was dissected at 100 um thickness with a vibratome. Part of the slices are blocked with 10 percent normal goat serum and 0.3 percent Triton 100 in PBS for 30 minutes on ice followed by incubation o/n at 4 degrees C with horseradish peroxidase-conjugated goat anti-mouse albumin (Bethyl Labs, USA, diluted to 1/400) in 1 percent heat inactivated normal goat serum in PBS. After washing, about 1mL of 3,3'-diaminobenzidine reaction solution (15 mL DAB solution + 10-15 uL H2O2, 30 percent, (Dako, Denmark)) was added, incubated for 30 minutes at 4 degrees C, washed again and incubated for 1 hour with 1.5 percent GA and 1% PFA in cacodylate, rinsed in cacodylate and postfixated in 1 percent osmium tetroxide + 1.5 percent potassium ferrocyanide. Samples were dehydrated and processed further into epon. Sequential 100 nm sections were mounted on a copper slot grid covered with Formvar support film and a 3 nm carbon coating for TEM, and on a water drop on a clean glass slide for RCM.20 The sample was mounted with immersion oil (Immersol 518F, Zeiss) on a RCM-adapted microscope (reflection contrast device RV; Leica, Wetzlar Germany). Images were recorded with a 100X, 1.25 NA objective. TEM sections were stained with an aqueous solution of lead citrate and uranyl acetate before visualization and data was collected at an acceleration voltage of 120 kV,on a Tecnai 12 (BioTWIN) transmission electron microscope, equipped with an Eagle CCD camera (FEI company, Eindhoven, the Netherlands).
