A layer of septal cells, contiguous with the pillar cell bases, divides the intralamellar space into two parallel compartments, forming a lattice-like series of lacunae through which the hemolymph flows.
The effects of acclimation to the experimental media ([less than]0.5[per thousands], 21[per thousands], or 28[per thousands]) were evaluated morphometrically using as criteria the alterations induced in the thickness (in micrometers) of the intralamellar septal cells and the pillar cell flanges; and the height (in micrometers) and numerical density (as microvilli/micrometer of apical membrane) of the apical microvilli on the pillar cells.
To measure the thickness of the septal cells, the test system was placed perpendicularly to the plane of the gill cuticle; valid transects were represented by single planes in which the line segments intersected both cell margins.
