The outermost epithelial cell layer of frog taste buds consists of (1) mucus-secreting cells; (2) thin, sheet-like processes of wing cells, which enclose the basal and lateral aspects of the mucus cells; (3) slim apical processes (sensory dendrites) of taste receptor cells; the latter ascend within wing-cell processes and each process terminates apically in one villus-like “rod”, a dense, highly ordered bundle of 500–1500 actin filaments supporting the chemoreceptive membrane.
