The ultrastructure and the histochemistry of the fibrous system in the mesogloeal extracellular matrix (ECM) of two hydromedusae (Polyorchis penicillatus and Aglanlha digitale) has been examined. There is a fundamental difference in the architecture of the fibrous system between the two species. In Polyorchis, 60-150 A thick, striated fibrils with periodicities of 60-65 A form a three-dimensional network which fills in the entire ECM of outer and inner mesogloea. In the outer mesogloea vertical… CONTINUE READING
