Structure of the renal corpuscle, a. This schematic diagram shows the organization of the renal corpuscle and the structures associated with it at the vascular and urinary poles. Mesangial cells are associated with the capillary endothelium of the glomerulus and the glomerular basement membrane. The macula densa cells of the distal tubule are shown intimately associated with the juxtaglomerular cells of the parietal layer of Bowman's capsule proximal convoluted tubule basal lamina basal lamina
