This paper describes the morphological responses of adult male guinea pig adrenals to dexamethasone (DEX) and adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH), in both qualitative and quantitative terms. Most organelles and inclusions are affected, but their responses often vary in the different cell types examined: zona fasciculata externa and interna, and zona reticularis. Following DEX the volume of lipid droplets increases in cells of zona fasciculata externa but decreases in zona reticularis; smooth… CONTINUE READING
