Peritubular capillary schematic under two conditions. (A) Cross-section of normal peritubular capillaries with an intact endothelial monolayer anchored by the actin cytoskeleton and covered with the glycocalyx. (B) Endothelial alterations due to acute kidney injury, such as glycocalyx disruption, actin cytoskeleton disruption, detachment of the endothelial monolayer with increased endothelium-leukocyte interaction and expression of intracellular adhesion molecules.
