Ultrastructural and immunocytochemical features of the taste buds of the vallate, foliate and fungiform papillae in young, adult and elderly men, revealed three types of sensorial cells: dark type I cells rich in free ribosomes and large dense granules, light type II cells with large amorphous areas of cytoplasmic matrix and light type III cells with a dense core immunoreactive for 5-HT. All sensorial cells send microvillous protrusions of the apical cytoplasm into the gustative canal and make… CONTINUE READING
