A descriptive account and morphometric study of the adrenal medulla and adrenal chromaffln cells of Wistar rats aged from birth to 22 months is presented. Distinct adrenaline and noradrenalinestoring types of chromaffin cells are first identified in 4-day-old animals, prior to that time individual cells contain both adrenalineand noradrenaline-storing granules. Primitive sympathetic cells and phaeochromoblasts occur up to 2 days postnatally. Mitotic figures occur in chromaffin cells of a… CONTINUE READING
