RNA is closely associated with human mast cell secretory granules, suggesting a role(s) for granules in synthetic processes.

Abstract

The distribution of ribosomes in mature human mast cells, a major granulated secretory cell, does not resemble that in other secretory cells, such as pancreatic acinar cells and plasma cells. By routine ultrastructural analysis, ribosomes in human mast cells are often close to, attached to, or even appear to be within secretory granules. To document better… (More)
