Ciliated cells are characterized by a highly organized cytoskeleton which is connected with the ciliary apparatus. The organization of microtubules, microfilaments, and cytokeratin filaments is described and the relationships of each network with the ciliary apparatus are emphasized. Possible functions of such a complex cytoskeleton are discussed.
Ultrastructural characteristics of erythrocytes, heterophils, eosinophils, lymphocytes, monocytes and thrombocytes of the loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) were evaluated, using blood samples from 15 healthy juvenile animals. Except for the eosinophils, the rest of the white blood cells from loggerhead turtles had similar ultrastructural(More)
Monoclonal antibody CC-248 labels cilia differentially on Triton X-100 permeabilized ciliated epithelium of quail oviduct by indirect immunofluorescence. On isolated ciliated cells, a punctuated staining is seen at the distal region over the bend of cilia. Electron micrographs of immunoperoxidase and immunogold techniques showed that the punctuated(More)
