Ultrastructural studies of the perisinusoidal space in the avian liver have demonstrated the presence of 2 extravascular cell types—a fat-storing cell and a free mesenchyme cell or histiocyte. This latter cell type is capable of participating in the formation of a bile canaliculus with the hepatic parenchymal cell. The possibility of the fatstoring cell differentiating from the histiocyte is suggested. 

Ultrastructure of in situ perfusion‐fixed avian liver, with special reference to structure of the sinusoids

The ultrastructural characteristics of intercalated cells (putative extra‐sinusoidal macrophages of chicken liver) are described and their possible role as precursors of Kupffer cells is discussed.

The stellate cell system (vitamin A-storing cell system)

Past, present, and future research into hepatic stellate cells (HSCs, also called vitamin A-storing cells, lipocytes, interstitial cells, fat-storing cells, or Ito cells) are summarized and discussed

It is suggested that the difference in structure is not artifactitious but represents a species variation, since observations on the rat and other small laboratory animals provide the basis for most of the current generalizations about the organization of the mammalian liver sinusoid.

Electron Microscope Studies on the Fine Structure of the Sinusoidal Wall and Fat-Storing Cells of Rabbit Livers

The ultrastructure of the sinusoidal wall in the adult rabbit livers and associated structures such as the stellate cell of KUPFFER and the fat-storing cell of ITO (1951) was observed with the

The endothelial lining of the hepatic sinusoids was found to be predominantly continuous and it was suggested that the lining is capable of closing temporary openings, thus small gaps frequently seen in the lining may not be permanent holes during life.

Electron microscopic study on the hepatic sinusoidal wall and the fat-storing cells in the normal human liver.

Though the fat-storing cells exhibit no cytological signs indicating a phagocytic activity, many invaginations of the plasma membrane and vesicles including the bristle-coated ones are found along their free surfaces suggesting a vigorous pinocytotic activity.

Electron microscopic studies of normal and proliferated bile ductules.

Tubules lined by flat or cuboidal epithelium connect bile canaliculi between the liver cells with the smallest bile ducts in the portal tracts. They lie partly in the portal tract and partly in the

The immediate or Arthus type allergic reaction has been shown to lead to so-called eosinophilic necrosis of parenchymal liver cells, and dialysate, containing large quantities of fluorescein isothiocyanate, was injected directly into the main trunk of the portal vein of two animals in io ml.
