Intercellular cleft in the mouse gut. Transmission electron micrographs of enterocytes from different areas of the gut. Clearly there are areas where the lateral intercellular cleft, marked with white arrowheads, is narrow throughout the height of the cell (A) whereas in other areas widening can be observed (B), which are marked with arrows. Junctional complexes (JC) and microvilli (mv) can be observed.
