A scanning electron microscope study of mouse peritoneal mesothelium.


As seen in the scanning electron microscope, peritoneal mesothelial cells of the mouse diaphragm, anterior abdominal wall and intestinal serosa carry numerous microvilli. These microvilli are absent over certain areas of the cell surface and are sometimes, interlocked in meshwork patterns or coronal formation. The apical cell membranes of the mesothelium at the base of the microvilli, are invaginated by many plasmalemmal vesicles and vacuoles and carry a number of protruding spherical structures. Deep circular craters, giving the impression of stomata, are also visible.
