In April 1898 at the Medico-Surgical Society of Pavia, Camillo Golgi communicated his finding of a novel intracellular structure, which he had detected in nerve cells by means of a variant of the “black reaction” he had developed earlier for the staining of the nervous tissue. On the basis of the “netlike” appearance and intracellular location of this structure, Golgi defined it as “internal reticular apparatus”. The reality of the organelle was debated for fifty years, since some investigators… 

How Camillo Golgi became “the Golgi”

TLDR
His researches spanned lower and higher plant species and he showed that much of the material of the cell wall is synthesized in cytoplasmic organelles before being transported to the developing wall in vesicles assembled from the membranes of the Golgi body.

Questions on unusual Mimivirus-like structures observed in human cells

TLDR
The main hypotheses are that the structures could be either giant viruses having a retroviral antigenicity or ancestral cellular components having a viral origin, however, other possible alternatives have been proposed to explain the nature and function of the newly identified structures.

TLDR
Inizia una rubrica a cura dei Colleghi, “Pathologica storica”, che si prefigge l’obiettivo di approfondire alcuni aspetti della nostra Professione, soprattutto attraverso the rivisitazione di articoli apparsi su Pathologica nel corso del tempo.

One hundred years of Golgi’s “perineuronal net”: history of a denied structure

TLDR
Only after about fifty years, the advances in the field of cytochemistry allowed the elucidation of not only the actual existence of perineuronal nets but also their chemical nature, showing conclusively that they are complex organisations of extracellular matrix molecules, namely glycoproteins and proteoglycans.

A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE GOLGI COMPLEX

TLDR
A comparison will be made of the ultrastructure of the Golgi complex in a series of cell types, one primarily secretory, one primary absorptive, one thought to be both secretory and absorptive in function, and one in the process of differentiation.

TLDR
The difference between the Golgi apparatus of a young oocyte and a full-grown ovum lies, not iu the fact that the Gol Gi rods of the latter are individually very much larger than those of the former, but mainly in the fact of the rods have increased enormously in number by binary fission.

On the structure of nerve cells 1

TLDR
In the group of specimens that you see before you, you will immediately recognize two different characteristics of the organization of nerve cells, characteristics one of which concerns the external surface, and the other, the interior or depths of the cell body.
