SummaryUltrastructural examination of the podium of the asteroid echinoderm Stylasterias forreri has revealed that cells of the coelomic epithelium and cells of the retractor muscle should be considered as components of a single epithelium. The podial retractor cells are, therefore, myoepithelial in nature. This report concentrates on those ultrastructural features of the retractor cells that are most likely involved with excitation-contraction coupling. The spatial arrangement of the… Expand
