Monoamine-containing subependymal cells of the lamprey: Evidence from combined fluorescence histochemistry and electron microscopy

Abstract

Two types of monoamine-containing subependymal cells were studied microspectrofluorometrically and electron microscopically. Microspectrofluorometric analyzes showed that yellow fluorescent cells contained 5HT and blue-green fluorescent cells dopamine (DA). These two types of fluorescent cells could be recognized also in a thin section (about 250 nm thick) mounted on a reference grid. Electron microscopy of the same section revealed that electron dense granules in the 5HT-containing cells are larger (80–140 nm) in size than those in the DA-containing cells (60–100 nm).
