The interstitial cells of Cajal of the human stomach were studied at the electron microscope. These cells have an exceptionally elongated shape and several lateral branches. Their cytoplasm characteristically possesses cisternae of smooth endoplasmic reticulum and filaments. A capsular-like structure surrounds them and joins them to each other and to the neighbouring nerve endings and smooth muscle cells, and so they all make up anatomical units. Elastic fibres also make bridges between these… CONTINUE READING
