There are situations in which direct observation of the attachment of antibody molecules may be the simplest method of detecting antigen-antibody reactions. Applied to the study of the sex pili determined by a number of transmissible bacterial plasmids, the method has distinguished four serotypes in the F-like class and two in the I-like class. Antibody was(More)

The structure of the rat parietal cell was examined by electron microscopy. The intercellular and intracellular canalculi are lined by microvilli which are more numerous and larger than those of other gastric cells. The numerous mitochondria have closely packed cristae and a dense matrix containing opaque particles. The cytoplasmic vacuoles typical of(More)

Potassium permanganate has become an established fixative in electron microscopy (Luft, 1956) and has special value in the study of cell membranes. During an investigation of methods of increasing the contrast in the electron microscope of tissues embedded in epoxy resin, t a solution of potassium permanganate was used to treat the sections, using a(More)
A study of the early life history of Eimeria tenella with the electron microscope confirmed that sporozoites do not directly enter the enterocytes of the crypts, in which they develop, but are carried there by host cells. However, these cells are not macrophages, as previously thought, but intraepithelial lymphocytes. The evidence presented demonstrates(More)
The ultrastructure of the lesions of the central nervous system (CNS) of chickens was examined at intervals after intra-abdominal inoculation of Marek's disease virus (MDV). No transient paralysis occurred. Peri-vascular accumulations of lymphocytes and macrophages (cuffing) were accompanied by invasion of the CNS by these blood-borne leukocytes in the most(More)
