Monoamines in the C cells of the thyroid gland of callithricid primates


The thyroid gland of three species of marmosets were studied with the Falck and Hillarp fluorescence technique for monoamines. Two types of fluorescent C cells were observed. The predominant type displayed the greenish (or blue) fluorescence characteristic of catecholamines. The other type displayed a yellowish fluorescence most probably due to 5-HT. The… (More)
