Fine structural and enzymehistochemical observations on the notochord of Ichthyophis glutinosus and Ichthyophis kohtaoensis (Gymnophiona, Amphibia)


The notochord of Ichthyophis glutinosus and I. kohtaoensis consists of peripheral flattened cells characterized by a well-developed system of rough endoplasmic reticulum, bundles of tonofilaments, and abundant glycogen particles. These cells contain furthermore fairly high activities of α-naphtyl-acetate esterase and 4-chloro-5-bromoindoxyl acetate esterase… (More)
