3.25 in. x 4 in. Lantern Slides Hemoglobin, used as a tracer, is seen in the lumen of a capillary lined by a continuous endothelium, in endothelial caveolae, and in the extracellular space. Tracers such as hemoglobin or small heme-peptides were used by these investigators to demonstrate the role of caveolae in transcytosis of molecules across continuous capillary endothelial cells.
