Occurrence of subtypes of gustatory cells in cat circumvallate taste buds.

Abstract

Transmission-electron microscopy of cat taste buds confirmed that, as in other mammals, each taste bud comprised four distinct types of cells: Type I, Type II, Type III (gustatory), and Type IV (basal) cells. Gustatory cells made synaptic contacts with nerves to which synaptic vesicles were gathered. The following are the main findings on the cat gustatory… (More)
