Enzan: Morphology and function of Ito cell (fat-storing
- K. H
- cholesterol crystals. Arch. histol. jap
Fat-storing cells in the liver of an adult Schneider's skink were investigated by means of transmission electron microscopy. The fat-storing cells were localized in the perisinusoidal space or in the hepatic "recessus". They revealed a single cilium originating from one of the paired centrioles and projecting into the perisinusoidal space. The functional significance of a single cilium in the fat-storing cell is still unclear.
