Serial reconstruction at the EM level of cat retinal ganglion cell dendrites reveals that: (1) the microtubular array is discontinuous, (2) microtubular endings are associated with smooth endoplasmic reticulum (SER), mitochondria, and plasma membrane, (3) individual microtubules always maintain a minimum distance from other microtubules (87 nm), SER (43 nm) and plasma membrane (69 nm), and (5) individual microtubules can 'wander' independent of adjacent microtubules throughout the dendritic… CONTINUE READING
