Regarding Glomerulus

Glomerulus is a small tuft of capillaries. Glomerular epithelial cells podocytes put out the long foot process which interdigitate with those of adjacent epithelial cells. Glomerular capillary endothelial cells contain pores. These pores are called fenestrae. They are large fenestrae, are not covered by diaphragm. Which allow access of circulating molecules to the underlying GBM. Mesangial cells lie in the central region of glomerulus.
