The cytologic development of Meissner corpuscles of the mouse toe pad has been studied using light and electron microscopy, and correlated with silver impregnations of frozen sections. By 18 days of gestation, neurites are seen near the epidermis, but intraepidermal neurites are few. One day after birth, the number of intraepidermal neurites increases, and some accompanying Schwann cells extend their cytoplasmic processes penetrating the basal lamina of the epidermis. Four days after birth… CONTINUE READING
