BACKGROUND Many mammals have four different types of lingual papilla, namely filiform, fungiform, circumvallate, and foliate papillae, on the dorsal or lateral surface of the tongue. However, details of the morphogenesis of these lingual papillae have not been reported. We have investigated the changes in the three-dimensional ultrastructure that occur during the morphogenesis of filiform, fungiform, and circumvallate papillae in rats during fetal and postnatal development. METHODS Tongues… CONTINUE READING
