The olfactory organ of the fish Alburnus alburnus consists of 22 lamellae arranged into rosette like structure and are built up by supporting, gland, basal, ciliated and unspecialized epithelial cells, as well as receptor cells with microvillous, ciliated or rod shape dendritic endings. The spatial distribution of the supporting and gland cells can be considered homogeneous while the ciliated epithelial cells are dominant on the latero-marginal areas of the lamellae with a 10 +/- 3/1000 microns… CONTINUE READING
