(for unlabelled original image click here, please!)

B = Basalmembran (Lamina basalis); C = Cytoplasma (Zellflüssigkeit mit Organellen);
E = Endocytosevorgang (Aufnahme von flüssigen Stoffen in das Zellinnere); L = Lumen mit Harn;
Lf = Lamininfibrillen (verankern Hemidesmosom am Kollagen der Lamina basalis);
HD = Hemidesmosom (Halbdesmosom; besteht aus 2 an der Membran verankerten PLaques);
iF = Intermediärfilamente des Zytoskeletts (an den PL des HD verankert); K = Kernmembran;
Mi = Mitochondrien (Cristatyp); N = Nucleus (Zellkern); P = Plasmalemma (Zellmembran);
PL = 2 miteinander verbundene Plaques an denen die Intermediärfilamente (iF) verankert sind;
