Rohon-Beard neurons are primary sensory cells located in the spinal cord of embryonic lower vertebrates. The kinetics of their normal, gradual, but complete disappearance in Xenopus tadpoles has been followed. Levels of acid phosphatase activity, a common histochemical correlate of cell death, were assayed and found to increase at the time of onset of disappearance of Rohon-Beard cells. Ultrastructural examination revealed the presence of numerous secondary lysosomes, swelling of endoplasmic… CONTINUE READING
