Die licht- und sublichtmikroskopische Morphologie der Epidermis des neotenen Axolotls (Siredon mexicanum Shaw)

Abstract

Three different cell types are the most frequent elements of the epidermis of the neotenic axolotl: (1) the common epidermal cells are small and multiform. They show bundles of tonofilaments (figures ofEberth) in the stratum basale. (2) The big Leydig cells contain numerous gross granules and a special network in the peripheral cytoplasm (Langerhans net). (3) The cover cells forming the outer layer of the epidermis possess a striking mucin zone in the apical cytoplasm.
