The subcommissural organ of vertebrates secretes glycoproteins into the third ventricle that condense to form Reissner's fiber (RF). Antibodies raised against the bovine RF-glycoproteins reacted with the floor plate (FP) cells of two teleost (Oncorhynchus kisutch, Sparus aurata) and two amphibian (Xenopus laevis, Batrachyla taeniata) species. At the ultrastructural level, the immunoreactivity was confined to secretory granules, mainly concentrated at the apical cell pole. In the rostro-caudal… CONTINUE READING
