      ❓ I have a quick question….How are capillaries specially structured to perform their job?
      I am running on fumes and I have a quiz in 30 min. Anyone?

      the cell layer is just one cell thick and the gap junctions are not so tight so fluid can pass. Some cappilaries contain so called fenestrae. These are cappilaries that have pores because the endothelial cells doesn’t make contact with each other everywhere. (Location: kidney for example.)

      I will have hope for my future tests to post questions here. 🙂
