Submicroscopic morphology of granular vesicles in sympathetic nerves of rat pineal body

  title={Submicroscopic morphology of granular vesicles in sympathetic nerves of rat pineal body},
  author={William Bondareff},

In the rat pineal body sympathetic nerve endings are characterized by numerous agranular and granular vesicles. The latter mainly include vesicles of about 450 Å diameter, each of which is bounded by a trilaminar membrane of about 75 Å total thickness. The cores of these granular vesicles appear structurally similar to the bounding membranes and are formed by a less dense, globular or vacuolar component around which a more dense component is distributed. The relative distributions of these two… CONTINUE READING
