Caption: Kidney glomerulus surface. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of podocyte cells (orange) on the surface of a kidney glomerulus. These have branching processes (pedicles) that interlock. Below the surface, blood flows through the coiled capillary that is the core of a glomerulus. The function of the glomeruli is to filter waste products from the blood. Filtration occurs through the narrow slits between the interlocking pedicles. After the reabsorption of certain substances elsewhere in the kidney, the liquid is transported to the bladder as urine.
