Exocrine and endocrine types of secretion were investigated in various cells by applying the protein A-gold immunocytochemical approach. Several proteins secreted by rat pancreatic and parotid acinar cells, mouse ameloblasts, rat pancreatic B cells and lymph-node plasma cells, and frog hepatocytes were studied using specific antibodies. While light(More)
Adult male Rana pipiens were administered estradiol-17 beta to induce vitellogenesis. Liver and blood were taken from control animals and experimental animals on Days 1, 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, and 120 following hormone treatment. Stereological analysis of livers showed that mitochondrial structural parameters remained constant while rough endoplasmic reticulum(More)
Mitochondria in sections of liver and heart (wall of left ventricle) from C57BL/6J mice, 8, 30 and 43 to 44 mo. old, were analyzed, using sterological techniques. The mitochondrial volume density decreased with age in both tissues: in liver the value estimated as 43 to 44 mo. of age was 65% the value estimated at 8 mo. of age; in the heart the 43 to 44 mo.(More)
The protein A-gold immunocytochemical technique was applied to the localization of vitellogenin in the hepatocyte of the bullfrog, Rana catesbeiana, eight days after treatment with estradiol-17 beta. Specific labeling was present in cellular compartments involved in protein secretion and was shown to progress in sequence through RER, Golgi apparatus,(More)
Mitochondria in sections of left ventricular wall and liver from C57BL/6J mice, 9, 18, and 36 mo. old, were analyzed using stereological procedures. At 9 mo. of age mu2 cristae surface per mu3 cytoplasm(Sv-c/c was fivefold greater in heart compared with liver reflecting the larger values in the former for both mu2 cristae surface per mu3 mitochondrion(More)
Specific polyclonal antibodies raised against purified human platelet Ca2+-ATPase were used with protein A-gold immunocytochemistry to localize this protein in human platelets. Immunolabeling specifically detected Ca2+-ATPase over the surface connected membrane system (SCS) in sections of paraformaldehyde-fixed, Lowicryl-embedded platelets. The maximum(More)
Heart, liver, pectoralis major, and plasma of hibernating, arousing and aroused bats were studied. The activities of four mitochondrial enzymes and three morphometric parameters of mitochondria did not change in the heart. Mitochondrial enzyme activities in the liver and pectoralis major did not change. Lactate dehydrogenase activity and isoenzyme content(More)
Recently, a non-vitellogenin, estrogen-induced frog plasma protein of unknown function and site of synthesis, which has been given the temporary name, protein-RcX, was isolated and partially characterized by Mitchell et al. In the present study, the protein A-gold immunocytochemical technique was applied to investigate its site of secretion; this was found(More)
