Regeneration of rat urinary bladder epithelium after 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-treatment: scanning and transmission electron microscopic study.


Rat urinary bladder epithelium consists of basal, intermediate and superficial cell layers. The superficial cells (SP cells) were desquamated after 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-treatment, and the morphological changes of the regenerating epithelium were investigated by scanning and transmission electron microscopy. Twenty-four hours after TPA… (More)
