Ultrastructural and electrophysiological maturation of the chick tegmentum vasculosum.

We have examined the ultrastructural and electrophysiological events associated with the embryonic development of the tegmentum vasculosum, the ion-transporting epithelium in the chick cochlear duct. The cytodifferentiation of the light and dark cells in the epithelium from embryonic day 6 through post-hatching day 7 was studied with transmission electron… CONTINUE READING
