Figure 7. Higher power detail of Figure 6. The broad border under the podocytes at lower left is an obliquely sectioned area that shows the tangle of pedicels in flat view. The wall of the proximal tubule (upper right), fused with the basement membrane and podocytes of the end sac, displays a wide and irregular brush border. These specializations disappear in the region of the valve, situated out of the plane of section in the center. Light micrograph. 1,600 X
