The cytoskeletal proteins are phylogenetically well preserved in Vertebrates. However, unlike the case of Mammals, comparatively little is known about the immunocytochemical characterization of the intermediate filaments (IF) of the ependymal epithelium cells in the lower Vertebrates. The immunohistochemical response of the ependymal epithelium of the spinal cord has been examined in several poikilotherm Vertebrates. The latter were selected on the basis of the high degree of variation in adult… CONTINUE READING
