After switching culture medium in the upper chamber for 24 h, the controlled and AU-treated cells were subjected to examination by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Quantitative analysis was performed on the thick sections to measure cell height (a, b) and length of the microvilli (marked with arrow heads) (c, d). Evaluation of the intracellular organelles was performed on the ultra-thin sections (e). Each dot plot represents mean ± SEM of the data obtained from at least 50 measurements in ≥50 cells from ≥5 different thick sections in each group.
