Electron microscopic demonstration of acid phosphatase activity in the developing and mature heterophils of the chicken

Abstract

As shown by electron microscopic histochemistry using a modified Gomori lead salt technique, acid phosphatase is present in large dense granules and the Golgi apparatus —but not the light granules—in both immature and mature heterophils in the chicken. The large dense granules appear to form by budding from the Golgi cisternae while the light granules… (More)
