We investigated hamster parathyroid glands of different ages using electron microscopy and found a new cell type in young, adult and senile hamsters. Theses special cells were located in interstitial tissues and invariably contained several lipid droplets within the cytoplasm. The cells showed an elongated spindle with some cell processes. The cells… CONTINUE READING
