A quantitative ultrastructural study of microtubules in Purkinje cell dendrites of normal and hypothyroid developing rats was performed after fixation either at room or at low temperature (4°C). In normal animals, the density of microtubules and their fold-stability increased with age, more especially during the period of intense dendritic growth. Thyroid… CONTINUE READING
