To gain additional information about the arrangement of intermediate filaments (IF) in normal smooth muscle, fresh avian gizzard was processed for immunoelectron microscopy. The protein A-gold immunocytochemical technique was applied for the localization of desmin antigenic sites. Desmin-containing IFs were located in an axial bundle that partially surrounds the nucleus and were associated with numerous mitochondria near the poles of the nucleus. The bundle probably extends the length of the… CONTINUE READING
