  2. What are three types of junctions?
    • Impermeable junctions
    • Anchoring junctions
    • Communicating junctions.
  3. How do researchers look at cell-cell junctions?
    They use light microscopy, or electron microscopy for detail.

    • There are two different types of electron microscopy, both of which have particular value.
    •   - Conventional transmission electron microscopy.
    •   - Freeze fracture microscopy.
  4. How are tissues prepared for conventional E.M.?
