Details are presented of the structure and the spatial and temporal sequence of calcification within leg tendons obtained from the domestic turkey, Meleagris gallopavo. Histological and ultrastructural examination of the tissues reveals the development of large tendonoblasts, disposed in columns parallel to tendon long axes. Maturing cells are characterized by organelles active in protein synthesis, few mitochondrial granules, and an extensive system of processes. Deposition of mineral in the… CONTINUE READING
