This study compares the ultrastructure of murine embryonal carcinoma cells, the multipotential stem cells of teratocarcinomas, with the constituents of the primordial testicular tubules in which they arise. The primordial tubules were composed of Sertoli cells and primordial germinal cells ; the former were well differentiated with Golgi membranes and well developed cisternal endoplasmic reticulum. The ultrastructure of primordial germinal cells bore a striking resemblance to embryonal… CONTINUE READING
