GLOMERULAR FILTER
(border between blood and primary urina)
     Electron microscopy image

1 - capillary endothelium of the glomerulus
2 - podocyte pedicles, or secondary foot processes
     (inner layer of the glomerular (Bowman's) capsulae)
3 - glomerular basement membrane; there are 3 layers:
     middle layer is more dark (lamina densa), outher layers look
      lighter (laminae rara)
